Great news! Angela has raised $800 AUD (450 GBP) at a party sing in her home city of Adelaide. All proceeds have gone to supplying the water tanks and other materials needed, plus labour costs. So a real BIG thank you to Angela, her singing team and all those who participated and donated !!DHANYABAD!!
And Jolana, Mon and the guys in the village, and everyone else involved have done a great job in building guttering onto the school, and connecting a series of downpipes to the 2 tanks located at one end of the school.
The main reason for doing this was to take advantage of the large quantities of rainfall during the monsoon. This water can then be used for cleaning hands and dishes, and even filtered for drinking water.
We will update you after the monsoon to see how successful it has been!
