We've achieved our initial target to build a brand new bore-hole well that we hope to position next to a Nursery School we visited last week - thank you to everyone who has made that possible in a few short days.
During our trip, we also visited the Kyanagolo Home for Disabled (and orphaned) children. We learned they are in desperate need for livestock (goat/cows/chickens) and basic teaching supplies, musical instruments, speakers, arts and craft and padded floor mats (so the kids don't have to pull themselves around on bare concrete).
We have today raised our fundraising target in the hope of helping this school further. We much appreciate any donation you can make.
At present 663 million people in the World do not have access to safe water. This equates to roughly 1 in 9 of the world's population. Women and Children walk miles each day just to provide water for their families which is often collected from dirty and unsafe sources.
Members Only, Cube19 & Last Night A DJ Saved My Life are working together to raise funds to provide wells to supply clean, safe water across Africa.
The impact of providing wells for a community stretches way beyond the realms of basic survival. Building safe and accessible water sources allows more time for children to receive an education and the opportunity for Mothers and Fathers to do more to provide for their families.
Clean water should not be a privilege but a right. It transforms lives, creates opportunities and lays the foundations to a brighter future - so what are you waiting for? Support the cause, get a round in, the drinks are on you! Your support will help change the lives of others and together we can make a real difference to many.
