Following two successful fundraisers for the East Dangme District Hospital and Maranatha Community School in Ghana, this Christmas, King Street Surgery is hoping to raise funds for a water drainage system in the village of Naboutini in the North Island of Fiji.The village sits at a base of a large hill and has no formalised or effective plan for waste water removal.This means that water that had flowed from peoples' homes would accumulate in a collection of small trenches at the back of the village and during the rainy season, it would flow down the hill and collects in pools. This standing water creates a breeding ground for Dengue mosquitoes, causing a large health concern to the village.
This Christmas, King Street Surgery would like to raise funds to assist the MAD foundation in digging out trenches and constructing concrete canals for water and waste disposal. This project also includes the construction of several small bridges in the village across these canals. Previously they were using unsafe wooden planks, which were placed across the standing water, in order for them to travel to the other side.Additionally, MAD foundation are working with the village to create a large concrete wash basin that can be used for washing clothes and dishes more easily and effectively.
