We have been donating 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 have 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 have therefore supplied regular devileries of maize and beans over the last 3 months to help meet the shortfall and will be reviewing whether further support is required in the new year.
