HEre are some of the projects in East Africa that CanAssist is working on - or plans to start soon. Your donation can help us complete this work.
We have recently funded the installation of several rain water catchment tanks at the Holy Innocents Medical clinic in Uganda. This essential rural community clinic services a large number of individuals for a wide variety of issues. The clinic now has access to safe water for sanitation. They are currently in need of a new latrine for pregnant women. We are looking for funds to allow construction of this essential facility to begin soon. Your donation will help.
Canassist has funded the repair of many borehole wells in the Mukono region of Uganda. These outdated community boreholes were in much need of repair as each well services 500-1200 people. Access to clean water is a basic human need which CanAssist is happy to support. And during the COVID Pandemic access to clean water is even more important. We just finished the tenth repair and there are many other communities waiting for your help. With your help we CanAssist! Please consider donating to help make fresh water available for more communities.
CanAssist has previously funded the construction of three classrooms at the Great Challenge School in Kampala, Uganda. This small school serves vulnerable children and orphans in the area. They reached out for support when their existing tin and beam structure was demolished in a windstorm. The construction of more stable brick classrooms means that children can learn in a safe environment. The school has submitted an application for an additional two class room block at a cost of approximately $15,000 CAD. With your assistance we could build these classrooms in anticipation of the children's return to school in the new year.
CanAssist is looking for funding to purchase an additional water storage tank for the Hope School and to fund a security fence for a planned garden site at this school. The school community plans to grow produce to help supplement their school lunch program.
We are presently seeking funding for several new latrines, one at the Holy Innocents Medical Clinic, and two more for schools in rural Uganda. We also need funds to purchase fuel efficient wood burning stoves for the preparation of school lunches. There is need for additional borehole wells throughout East Africa as well as COVID hand washing stations at a variety of schools and medical clinics. We continue to buy books, furnishings and supplies for several schools throughout the district. All of these projects need your support. Click on the link to donate now!
