    Story

    Dear friends

    Can you imagine what it must be like to get up in the morning and have to go out and find a bit of sheltered scrub land to have your morning wee or poo. That is what it is like for many people in the world.

    The ladies above are helping build a community toilet block in their village of Alavanyo in the Volta region of Ghana. But whilst they are able to collect sand and gravel from a nearby stream and give their labour to mix the concrete they can't afford the cement. They are subsistence farmers and have very little access to cash. If you could donate as little as £5.00 you could buy the cement to make the building blocks. A larger donation would help buy roofing sheets, doors, hinges for the doors, paint to keep the walls clean and most importantly the materials so the rainfall can be collected and stored so that people can wash their hands afterwards.

    The toilet block needs walls roof and privacy screening to finish it off and a group of volunteers are assembling in June to work with the villagers to finish it.

    A few years ago in Tafi Atome, a village near to Alavanyo, generous donations allowed me, again working with Ghanaian volunteers and the villagers, to build a similar block. Since then no children have died from diseases associated with unhygienic toilet practices.

    Would you help to make this a reality in Alavanyo.

    One elderly gentleman in Tafi Atome thanked the Volunteers and villagers for giving him somewhere private where he could complete his toilet in peace.

    Please be part of this gift to Alavanyo.

    I was a volunteer in the Volta region in 1968. When I went back in 2008 I helped build a toilet block. Since then I want to do more
