Often we limit the methods of helping children @ risk to issues such as education, housing and nutrition. Well, what about backed up sewers?
Recently we faced a serious health threat focusing on our school in the Soweto Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Here is Mary’s (our director) letter following the financial, assistance that came from Canada and the UK:
Letter of Appreciation and Gratitude:
Dear Ralph and Mama Norma,
On my own behalf and on behalf of Hope Bright Future School Soweto, I would like to take this early opportunity to express our gratitude to you for the expeditious way you came to our assistance at a time of dire need.
No words can suffice to say just how grateful we all are to you for literally 'getting us out of shit!' It is yet another indisputable indication of just how very seriously you think about our welfare and well-being. Am saying this because we were not only faced with the real danger of disease outbreak but the school was also on the verge of being closed down by public health officers because of the sewage disposal pits.
I am pleased to inform you that we managed to hire the exhauster service firm and they did a marvelous job that completely sucked all the fecal material in the septic tanks to our relief and to the satisfaction of the County Public Health Officer and his team who were on hand to supervise the exercise and inspect the premises after the task was done.
In a nut shell the pits were cleared and the place is not only looking clean but also smelling fresh.
What more can I say in view of the satisfaction i derived from your kind gesture? Well, I can only ask for God's unlimited blessings to shower you every day of your lives as you continue giving hope and relief to those in need.
