Water tank for the School
In February 2016, we heard of two cases of typhoid at our Kavumba school and sadly, one of the children died. This was followed by a suggestion made by the teachers that we should install a water tank at the school which would have an added bonus of teaching the children about hydration and basic hygiene. The tank is fed by rain water as there is no piped water or electricity at the school. We thought that this was a very valid request, and started fund raising for the project. Working Together Congo, a sister charity, joined us with this fund raising. The water tank was bought in Bukavu ( Kivu), and installed at the school in May 2016, to the great relief of the teachers and the delight of the children. The pictures speak for themselves of the practical improvements that this has brought to the life of the school.
