The Barry A. Murphy Fund, a Marin-based nonprofit that brings health and education to a village in Tanzania, is now helping villagers with good hygiene to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The organization recently provided soap to every villager in Maruvango. Most homes in sub-Sahara Africa do not have clean water and soap. In addition, the Barry A. Murphy Fund has provided clean drinking water to the two schools in Maruvango via rain catchment units. Information can be found at barryamurphyfund.org. -Photo courtesy of the Barry A. Murphy Fund
