Hi everyone, I am going to be taking part in a mission trip to Zambia in October organised by the charity Good News All Round. We will be building a borehole in a rural village near Lusaka to provide fresh clean water to the locals in the area. I was absolutely shocked to hear that clean water is still something that people cannot easily access in various parts of the world. It saddens me to think that fellow human beings don’t have the privilege of having access to such a basic necessity of life. When the opportunity presented itself for a mission trip to Zambia, a neighbouring country to my homeland of Zimbabwe, I was immediately compelled to help those who spend hours walking miles everyday to get something we turn the tap and get in an instant. Providing clean water locally for this village will mean less children will get poorly and in some instances die from the drinking contaminated water. This will save everyone a lot of time as they won’t have to walk miles for water - children will be able to be children and enjoy playing out and going to school instead of walking miles to obtain water. I am so excited to be apart of a positive project that is going to help the locals practically. I will be paying for my flights and accomodation etc. so any money donated will be going straight to the borehole works which is going to cost £3,400. I will personally be paying the difference for any money not raised for the borehole so will be grateful for any donations you can provide to help raise this amount.
Thank you all in advance.
