At Christmas we all do what we can
It’s Christmas time, and there’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, we let in light and banish shade
And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy.
How we plan to spread joy this Christmas
This Christmas we plan to commit -with your help- to digging a well for an all-female community organisation in northern Malawi. A fantastic group of volunteers who do all in their means to help the less fortunate in their community. Baking, sewing, teaching – you name it. But fresh water has proven to be their biggest challenge.
Water for Christmas
In particular without fresh water the running of their volunteer-led nursery will have to close. In fact they tried to close it but parents kept bringing their kids.
Someday Seibo hope to provide school feeding but for now we want to help the community get water! We can’t do it however without your help.
A Community Partnership
Led by the ever-capable Lexah Harrison the community have raised funding to install a solar pumping system, a water tank and a small distribution pipe networked to their buildings. All they need now is a well to get water from.
That’s where we in Japan come in.
Seibo in Malawi have sourced a contractor in Mzuzu, Malawi to dig a well- the cost in Malawian Kwacha is reckoned to be approximately 4.7 million Malawian Kwacha.
In US dollars- 6,550 USD
In Japanese yen- 742,000 JPY
