Thank you to all of you that have responded to both our recent appeals. We raised £7,033 from our water appeal, £1,562 of which has been spent purchasing and delivering 140,000 litres of clean water and £2,492 on increasing rainwater harvesting and storage capacity. Thankfully the rains have now returned to Kasigau after an absence of the best part of a year, filling water tanks and replenishing other water supplies.
Our latest appeal has so far raised £1,708 towards our school lunch programme but with food prices continuing to rise we still need so much more to be able to maintain this programme for the rest of the year. At current prices, it costs just £18 to provide a daily lunch for one child for a whole year or £250 to provide lunch for all 2,700 pupils for a day.
