Latest News on the Sanitation Project

We celebrate Anna's birthday this week (the 6th December) by announcing that Mike, together with a friend, Judith, have successfully walked 130 miles around 15 lakes in 12 days. Quite an achievement, and I for one am full of admiration. 

 
You can read all about it here:

We arre delighted to say that the sponsored walk has now raised a total of £3,600+ and though we’re still receiving the occasional surprise, and very welcome, donation, I think we’ve just about peaked! In Belize, Father Dominic is now going to employ local builders, who have worked on similar projects for the Claretian Mission in the past, and we’ll continue to report on progress.

The family would like to thank everyone who donated. It is good to see something positive happening, and Anna’s work continue.

If you have not donated and wish to do so, please go to:

Every little helps.

Sanitation Project

A flushing toilet is a basic necessity that most of us take for granted. But for the 130 children of San Pablo school in the tiny Central American country of Belize, it is a luxury they can only dream of. You can read all about Debbie´s and Mike´s visit below.

EU funding to compensate for the collapse in banana prices is providing a water tower for the village. This means that for the first time the villagers will not have to carry water from the river for washing and cooking.


It also means that the school could have flushing toilets – provided they can raise the hundreds of pounds needed. But the Claretian Mission who run the school do not have sufficient funds.

So, in September, from Monday 19 - Friday 30, Mike plans to walk round as many lakes in the English Lake District as possible, along with other friends and members of the family. If you would like to donate please follow this link.

Every little helps.
