Basiliana Infirmary House started in 2009 for the purpose of serving the sick / aged sisters of this Congregation. It started with 6 sisters, 3 bedridden. The house can accommodate 60 sisters, the house maintains its own autonomy; having projects like small bakery, animal keeping and gardening growing and increasing other small financial facilities marching current situation.
The sisters are sick they can not walk long distance especially when prompted to visit a doctor. they need several things such as an ambulance car, wheel chairs (human resources) etc. So, any one is invited to give hand in kind and material to help or assist with any way.
The actual background information of the project attributes to the sick/aged Sisters of St. Gemma Galgani and the surrounding population at Miyuji ward- Dodoma City outskirts.*
St. Gemma Sisters like many other religious Congregations around Dodoma City, undertake the tasks of Pastoral and socio-concern in the local Parishes in seven dioceses in Tanzania.
The promotion of Evangelization as well as human development such as education, Health Service, the orphan children, children of female prisoners, and Children with mental retarded disability, are motives of St. Gemma Sisters mission / ministry.
The sisters do farming and animal keeping to sustain life in small low income, The Congregation is at utmost striving to cope with financial up keeping.
There is a need to respond to challenges faced by this sick and elderly group. There are lots to share as they are our sisters who have served us to their last drop, in total surrender. Save a visit one day and contribute to the disabled and you will receive a hundred shold.
