Tanzanian Heavenly Homes is a nonprofit organisation setup and run by John McCauley, a Photographer from Mullingar. He and his team travel to Tanzania every year to help the forgotten elders and the poor. 

Tanzania - July 2023

We travelled to Mto Wa Mbu with 16 volunteers in July 2023

Using the money donated by you, we were able to buy rice, maize, beans, beds and mattresses for the poor people in the community.

We are only the messengers of your kindness, and without your donations, many of the people in these pictures would not be alive today. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

If your circumstances allow, please consider donating €3 per month by clicking the button below. Gifting a small monthly sum like this will help us to purchase the food and materials required to look after the community on an ongoing basis.

Check out our video above for full details!

Paddys Providing Pastures - The Farm

Your donations have allowed us to purchase this farm to feed the people in our care and help the poor in the village. The team on the ground have began digging a stream for water to flow into from a government controlled reservoir, as well as having the ability to direct the little rainwater they do get into storage areas. Part of the land has been ploughed and seeds sown. Most recently, the land has been fenced off using materials gathered locally.

But we still need your help! With a small number of pastures remaining, please do get in touch with us if you are in a position to donate. Please email us on TanzanianHH@gmail.com , or call John McCauley on 00353 87 6157349.

Please consider donating €3 per month to help these people

Where is your donation going?

John spoke to the Westmeath Examiner about our most recent project; “We have built 8 units, which will house 16 people, each with their own bedrooms and toilets,” said John.“We have built a kitchen dinning area too, so each day a cook will prepare three meals for them – they would never have had 3 meals a day before.”

Your donations provide these people with shelter, water, food and clothing. 100% of all donations given to the charity go towards helping these people. John and the charity’s committee work on a 100% voluntary basis. All adults who travel to Tanzania do so at their own expense.
