Initially it was a place for sisal estate workers, but due the failure of sisal production in 1984 the gornment reclaimed this camp and used it as a centre for people affected by leprosy. Today, Misufini has become one of the biggest Leprosy Care Centre in the Tange region (50+ inhabitants). The centre itself is located in Ngomeni Village, Muheza district. It is still owned by the Social Servces Depertment of the Government and comprises 400 acres.
