Lupus Tanzania is a foundation/charity and support group that aims to raise awareness on lupus, a disease that is not widely known by many people in Tanzania. The foundation offers support to its members through sharing useful information on the disease that they come across as they struggle with it, sharing information on alternative remedies that have worked for some of them, and providing information on medical help and doctors available. In general, through the platform, we offer each other psychological and friendly support that lupus patients need. Its membership is not just limited to lupus patients, but extends to supporters, who are friends and family
