Due to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to send money to pay for a solar panel water pump at the school in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. This will save them paying very high electricity bills to pump the water for the school children. They have recently installed the pump and will soon have the solar panels up and running. The money they save will then be spent towards feeding the children. The children board at the school and get two meals a day due to limited funds. They come from very rural areas of Burkina Faso where there is no prospect of an education and they are lucky to get one meal a day at home. The school has been struggling to find sponsors for the children and the money saved by this solar system will be greatly appreciated.

Our partners in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso received funds to buy food for the displaced people that had fled from the countryside to the capital. In Burkina Faso extremists have killed teachers and pastors and so churches and schools have closed and the security situation has significantly deteriorated. More than 1,000 schools in the north and east of the country have been forced to close. The violence has caused 120,000 people to leave their villages and many are now living in refugee camps or staying with family or friends. Money sent by the charity has bought 320 sacks of Maize and 198 sacs of rice. They are so grateful for the food that your donations have helped to provide
