On 22nd June 2019 we will be taking part in a 'Walk For Water' in Somerset to raise money for WatSan. Elizabeth and Joanna will be doing the 5 mile wheelchair accessible part of the route and Andrew will be walking the full 20 miles.
WatSan is a great charity, set up by our close family friends, which we've supported for a number of years. It is a charity dedicated to the support of a water and sanitation programme in South West Uganda.
Every few years, sponsored walks take place, which Andrew helps to organise, to raise money for the charity. We have taken part in many of these in the past, however, this time will be a little bit different. Since Elizabeth is in the process of learning how to walk all over again, the miles will be split between her walking and Joanna and Margaret pushing the wheelchair.
If you are able to donate, any amount will be appreciated :D
If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation :)
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.
