On 11th December we had news of a devastating storm at the Special School at Mvomero! Luckily everyone is safe, but the damage is extensive.
The Special School for the Deaf at Mvomero has been working really hard to establish itself as a Government primary school. The staff go the extra mile to support these children with hearing impairment helping them succeed at primary level. The work they do is important...
This unusually violent storm hit the School, destroying the kitchen, the water tanks, the cowsheds, chicken-house, and much more...
The priority now is to secure a water supply, get the kitchen up and running again (this provides meals for 40 children and staff), as well as providing protection for the animals (these provide food for the community as well as an income). The heavy rains are due at the beginning of February so we need to make significant progress in making repairs very quickly.
