TEDS - AFRICA

We were contacted by a lovely lady looking to buy some knitted cardigans for babies in Burkina Faso, one of Africa's poorest countries. We told her to visit us to see if we could help - this has now become a bit of a mission for us now that we have heard exactly what the local charity she represents does for these children...


Due to a tragic road accident, a man was left wanting to do something special in memory of his wife. He visited a school near the Burkina Faso capitol and was appalled that the children had no fresh water to drink, having to make a four mile journey just to fetch dirty water. He decided to help initiate a well building program which has turned into a labour of love, literally with almost 30 wells in the region now being dug and providing the water so desperately needed.

Along with his African school teacher friend Christine, he decided that once the children had their water, then they needed more schooling and provision to be able to get an education and more support in the form of basic items that we take for granted - hence now sending out containers of aid which he himself has often physically accompanied on it's gruelling trek to Zongo. Here the dried food, clothing, blackboards, exercise books, pencils, shoes, bedding, even vehicles and spare parts, finds their way to the children and their families and to an orphanage in the Village of Hope.


We were delighted to have the opportunity to meet CHRISTINE, the school teacher from the Zongo school, who came to the UK and explained the school system and how she has 535 children taught in only 6 classrooms - it was a great insight into their lives and her dedication to the children in her village and their families.

We will continue to help this project, already having given them thousands of items of clothing.

Currently there is not a container due to be shipped but should this change in the future, we will keep you posted!


WOW FACT!


Every penny that is given to Myra's Wells charity goes directly to the project to provide fresh water. Any administration charges incurred in publicity, fund transfer or project management in Africa are funded by the trustees personally!
