WATSAN receives generous donation in support of Rumbugu School

Sheila Houghton has shared a generous and thoughtful donation with WATSAN in aid of our priority project at Rumbugu.

Sheila, pictured with her husband Sir John Houghton and Bishop Dan Zoreka, has been a regular supporter of WATSAN by passing on the profits of HAFAN Christian Cafe, owned by her and run by volunteers from the churches in Tywyn/Aberdyfi, but she was moved to make a further personal donation after reading about the great need at Rumbugu School, where over 400 pupils share intermittent water to a single tap, and 40 female pupils share just one toilet.

Commenting on her support and the recent visit to Uganda by WATSAN trustee Graham Piper, Sheila says: “We shall jointly continue to support WATSAN on a regular monthly basis. It’s good to know you have trustees out at the moment checking and recording. As you know, I believe it to be one of the strengths of WATSAN.”

WATSAN accepts donations of all kinds and sizes, which can be made online, by standing order, bank cheque, CAF cheque, Stewardship or similar vouchers, in a legacy or via sponsorship for events such as our forthcoming Walk for Water.
