Sue Worcester kindly gave us some of her books to donate to schools in Same. Here is a photo of one of the books being donated to a teacher at the junior secondary in Babulo (half an hours' walk from Same). (the other books have been donated to various other schools) .
The school is giving us a proposal about books and also about a new gate - at present animals wander in and leave dung, and also people come at the weekend and steal or damage the plumbing so the toilets and washbasins are without water.
The birthing centre in Same was built by the Prince of Monaco about 2 years ago and during a recent visit from the Ministry of Health it was found that the building was not up to standard, the walls of the delivery suite need to be tiled.
This has now been done.
