JustUsFriends began when Jasen volunteered fo do medical work at St. Joseph's Hospital in Moshi, Tanzania in 2010. While there he recognized the need to provide simple everyday medical treatment for the children as they had very little, if any, means to receive. With the average pay per day being about $1.00 USD, most of the family income goes to provide food for the family which leads little left to spend on medical care.
When Jasen returned after a 3-month stewardship, he had decided he would return to Tanzania and make it his mission to help in the medical field. Several of "us friends" decided we could help make a difference and began JustUsFrinds. We built our first medical clinic at GoodHope Orphanage outside of Arusha, TZ which opened in October of 2011.
Today we are operating from a temporary clinic in Usa River, Tanzania and fundraising to build our second clinic, "Loren's Hope II" on land we have now purchased. The compound will be known as the JustUsFriends Maji ya Chai Compound.
One more thing you should know...We are not like other Non-Profits, we are all volunteers, so when you donate $100 the entire $100 goes to our projects. There are no administration fees.
