On the 22nd June Wendy and I will be taking part in the 5th Walk for Water in the Quantock Hills. I will be walking the full 20 miles to raise money for WATSAN a charity close to the heart of many at St Peters. In 2017 a team from our church visited WATSAN in Uganda and spent 2 weeks helping to complete various projects that had been started bringing clean water to those who would have had to travel to get water and often for it to not be clean and contaminated. Watsan also support in teaching of hygiene to help reduce the spread of illness. Here we are fortunate to have clean water running freely from taps and to not think about where the next drink of water may come, this is a very important charity to be supporting. If you would like to support us in this small challenge of a walk to help others to be able to drink clean water then we would love you to donate to this cause.
The charity's objectives are the provision of safe, clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene education to the rural communities of south-west Uganda, in the dioceses of North Kigezi and Kinkiizi. The charity operates under the umbrella of the church of Uganda in those dioceses with the support of both bishops. The work shows God's love to all people in a practical way.
Our current project is KIHIHI HILL RAINWATER HARVESTING AND SANITATION IMPROVEMENTS.
The existing water sources at Kihihi Hill are extremely unsatisfactory and existing sanitation buildings are quite inadequate. The project will be centred on the large high school (1000+ pupils), the associated nursery school and the church community, where a total of 4 x 30cu.m. rainwater harvesting tanks will be built.
New latrines for both pupils and staff will be constructed at the school and at the church, plus bathing shelters for the girls.
We need to raise over £25,000 to complete the project. Please support this vital work.
