Basiliana Infirmary House started in 2009 for the purpose of serving the sick / aged sisters of this Congregation. This is purposely placed near St Gemma hospital to secure service eligible to sick people who would need daily attendance. The house can accommodate 60 people, the targeted patients being around six persons at average. The house maintains its own autonomy, having small income generating projects such as bakery, animal keeping and gardening and other small financial facilities to cope with current situation.
The actual background information of the project attributes to the sick/aged Sisters of St. Gemma Galgani who would need hospital service as they are coming from different missionary communities.
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 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.
The sick can not walk long distance especially when prompted to visit a doctor, they need facilities (human resources) etc. So, any one is invited to give hand in kind and material to help or assist with any way.
