Italian Capuchin missionaries in Tanzania established the Children’s Centre more than 40 years ago. They recruited surgeons from Italy to come three times a year to the Centre to perform corrective surgery for children who have congenital deformities or have been
victims of accidents.

The missionaries from Italy can no longer provide financial support.
The surgeons still come regularly every year, but now, Tanzanian Capuchin friars need our help to continue the lifechanging work of the Children’s Centre.

The Capuchin Children’s Centre performs miracles for hundreds of children who would otherwise have lives
of begging, illiteracy and loneliness.
