Thankyou so much! With your donations they have already managed to make a cart and have organised rubbish collection. The city 'environmental services' has PROMISED to collect from next week - we are all hoping that's still going to be possible.

They're at significant risk from the corona-virus. You can't meaningfully isolate in such small houses, nestled do closely together. Many are still getting over fever and stomach bugs from the floods. And they eat at night what they've earned during the day - no stockpiling here!

But they are also positive (except, maybe, about politicians) and resilient and deserve a real chance.

In a long, hot cleanup last weekend, we cleared over 3 tonnes of rubbish!

The kids collected the plastic and other waste from the common areas and left behind after the burning, the families helped to dig two new storm gutters, and the local environmental services did an amazing job wading and cleaning sludge from the channels (that's the permission letter attached).

If the village builds a waste storage up on 'higher ground' and arranges house-to-house collection, the city environmental services have said they'll collect twice a week. That would be AMAZING! This community has never had that basic service.

They need metal for, effectively, a big skip ... and to hire a welder. And 4 wheels and some decent wood to make carts.

We got support from some medical students too - and they ran a corona-virus awareness session at the end. The city workers learned as much as the families - so it was well worthwhile :-)
