Belfast tools and sewing machines for people in Africa.
At TFS we all like games and some of us have been playing Tetris on our phone. If you are younger than 15 you probably don’t know what we are talking about which makes us feel really old. We never imagined that filling a container would be the same thing!
To summaries the situation, our organisation received 30 m3 container on Thursday afternoon. We divided our container in two parts, one half was for the Njombe project and the other one was for Ruvuma. We started with all the heavy machinery (compressor, pedestal, turning wood) and the tool boxes. To prevent a possible fall of all these stuff we stacked our big heavy boxes full of tools in the container as well.
This first part was finished on Saturday. On Sunday and Monday we filled the rest of the container with the sewing machines which will go to Ruvuma. The container left yesterday and should arrive in Tanzania in 7-8 weeks. In total the weight of the container is 11.41 tonnes! So we want to say a huge thanks to our volunteers who worked all the weekend to fill the container on time.
