Last October, we were pleased to announce we’d delivered 48 water tanks and set a target for 50 by Christmas. 

Thanks to our Christmas Gifts campaign and kind donations, that target has been absolutely smashed.

We were thrilled to receive funds from donors over Christmas to enable us to build another 16 water tanks for local communities, taking our total to over 60 – 64 to be precise.

“We have sent funds for the first 8 with more to follow.

“This is so gratefully received and saves the steep daily climb to the lake and enables more activities adjacent to the home.

“This is followed up by a day of training about sanitation and hygiene.

“When completed this will total 64 tanks and more requested.”

Of course, donations are not just for Christmas, financial gifts are welcome year round and go straight to helping the local communities.
