Little Things Matter -- Water Deliveries to Fatima ICC
Only 9% of households in Sierra Leone report having water on their premises. What this means for Fatima ICC is that when the rains don't fill water tanks the children must help with getting water. With 20 orphans at the Fatima ICC you can imagine that during the dry season (January - April) there are a lot of trips to get water to fill up the water tank -- almost everyday. Pictured below the kids have returned from getting water and are putting it in the water tank.
While the children don't mind the work and have many chores that they are responsible for, this was one that we felt they didn't need! That is why we have made arrangements for water to be delivered for the remainder of the dry season. Getting water took quite a bit of time and as you can see is not an easy task. Now the kids can spend more time on their studies and keeping their rooms clean!
