October 3, 2014    Mission trip to Tanzania in Dec/2014

Don Schlesselman, Executive Director for ZZ Pendana Foundation, along with intern Dusty Schlesselman will travel to Arusha Tanzania in late 2014, early 2015. Our goal this fall is to raise funds to purchase 500 water filter kits that we can distribute on our visit. These water filter kits will purify up to 500 gallons of water per day, enough water for up to 50 children per day. Clean water for drinking, bathing and cooking. Life saving water!


We will also visit Camp Moses, Camp Joshua and Hope for Children. Another priority for ZZhelpinghands.org is to help secure sponsors for the many unsponsored children at these facilities that we partner with.


All travel expenses for the Executive Director and Dusty are paid personally out of pocket. ZZPF uses 100% of all donations towards the projects we are working on. We have no administrative overhead.
