Water still flows in Cameroon war-zone

To: John Mitchell, CEO SHF

Good morning John,

Compliments of the season.

I have read with much gratitude your winter newsletter. The achievements are glaring. I thank you so much for the impact you are creating among our deprived people in Africa.

We pray that things come to normal in Cameroon so that the seed you started in Cameroon can continue to grow and bear fruits.

Despite the crisis, I was informed by one village elder Mr Henry Fongang and the chief of our centre there that the water in Efah has been flowing without stopping even in the heat of the dry season. I say once again on behalf of the villagers of Efah, thank you. God bless your projects with more sponsors.

Over the years, learners in the area have been walking an average of 7 kilometres to access primary education and 17 kilometres to the nearest secondary school at Enukweni.

Situated about 20 kilometres off Mzuzu-Karonga M1 Road, the school has a total enrolment of over 400 learners.

Pupils show their delight
The project has been funded by an Irish benefactor, Schools and Health Foundation, which according to its Chief Executive John Mitchell, believes education is an effective tool to free societies from poverty. Schools and Health Foundation is engaged in such projects in four African countries including Malawi. The Lions Club of Mzuzu partnered SHF in the project.
