    The Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower have just been notified that their international project with the charity Porridge and Rice has at last come to fruition!

    During the Rotary year 2018/2019, members raised funds to enable the charity to install much needed hand washing facilities and one of their partner schools in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

    The charity's aim is to alleviate poverty through education which also incorporates a feeding programme, hence its name! They also run a health and hygiene programme, so enabling the children to wash their hands was a vital part of the planned improvement for the children.

    The Club's donation of £1,552 has resulted in the installation this Summer of 8 washing stations and a 5000-litre water tank; the money was originally sought for one station but we will in the end be able to provide for 2 complete stations and a good way towards a third!!

    This is such an improvement on the previous washing facilities which consisted of a single tap and a bucket!

    President Steve Graham said: "We are so pleased that we could partner with ‘Porridge and Rice’ to provide the funds to build the new washing stations. I know we will stop the spread of disease which can have a devastating impact in some of the poorer countries in the world!"

    The attached photos are 'before and after' shots; the second shows deputy head teacher of Excel Emmanuel School, Nairobi, Mary Kinyanjuir with colleagues standing by the new facility.
