Story

On 22nd June I will join a small band of 'willing' volunteers to hike up and down the Quantock Hills for 20 miles.

Those who know me are aware that i like a bike ride, but this walking thing is frankly alarming to me, so I hope you guys can support me in bumbling round this route by raising money for those without access to clean water and sanitation.

It's so sad that that's a serious problem in the the world we live in, but it is, so let's lend a hand!

(as always; if you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give.)



Watsan Uganda UK Support, Kihihi Hill High School & Church Community

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.
