We have donated supplies to St Montfort School to help keep the visually impaired learners safe during the Covid pandemic.
We arranged for the purchase of plastic pails and soap to create handwashing stations at the school and for each student to be given a refillable bottle of hand sanitizer and two reusable face masks. We also donated suntan lotion for the students with albinism.
The school usually relies on donations from parents to provide lunches for the students, but the impact of the pandemic on the children’s families combined with a local drought had greatly reduced this source of funding. We therefore supplied regular devileries of maize and beans during 2021 to help meet the shortfall. The situation in the country has since improved and the school is now once again self sufficient.
