In 2020 the climate partnership, which was established in 2011, became an officially documented municipal partnership. And there is plenty more going on besides: As well as partnerships between schools on both sides, since 2012 the 'Marafiki wa Masasi Enzkreis – Masasi/Tanzania Partnership Association' has also been in place. Through this association, interested individuals from public and private institutions, and citizens, can get involved. The municipality of Enzkreis has close links with the partnership association. Some of the association's board members are local administrators or district councillors. Angela Gewiese has been Chair of the Association since it was founded.
The topics addressed by the association are renewable energy, medical aids, climate action, and education and training. The partnership association uses its own funds for instance to support Enzkreis's projects in Masasi, such as the FKKP project for solar power systems on the roofs of healthcare facilities. The association also maintains a climate partnership with Mkomaindo Hospital. The Mühlacker and Neuenbürg hospitals in Enzkreis are also involved. Some of the doctors have already been to Masasi for training purposes. The long-standing Deputy Chair of the Partnership Association was also the Chief Physician in the Department of Surgery in Mühlacker.
The coronavirus pandemic has made the situation in Mkomaindo Hospital even more difficult than it already was. As an employee of Enzkreis, in summer 2020 Angela Gewiese applied to the Service Agency for support under the Municipal Corona Solidarity Package (KCS). The plan was to procure additional equipment for the medical staff at the district hospital and the major health centres in the district. The association also supported the invitation to tender for the equipment, and helped obtain bids from Tanzanian firms.
