    October 2012 Update
    By - Peter Smith - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    Building work is continuing on the kitchen and dining hall, and the damage caused by the storm earlier in the year has been repaired (see photo). We were disappointed to learn that Madame Agartha, who had been unwell for a couple of months and had not been able to look after the children at the Centre, has now decided that...

    July 2012 Update
    By - Peter Elloway Smith - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    The storm (referred to in our previous project report) unfortunately damaged the water tank beyond repair. Misthy has submitted a claim for compensation for the loss to a regional fund (which is unlikely to make a decision for anumber of months) and is investigating other avenues for funding a further replacement tank. The...

    Progress with both building and child care. A busy year ahead!
    By - Peter Elloway Smith - HATW link volunteer, project co-ordinating team
    The past couple of months have been busy times at the Centre: the impressive pillars for the polytank have now been built (see photo), and arrangements will soon be made for the polytank to be delivered and installed; this will ensure that clean drinking water is always available for the children, as the mains water supply...

    Latest news from MCDC
    By - David Steiner - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD CEO
    We hear that the concrete structure to support the large water tank has now been completed and the tank will be installed any day now. This will make a big difference in that water supply and storage has always been a major problem. Agartha, a new carer, a lady with some years appropriate experience, has just started a...

    With Dieudonne Kakpo I travelled to Accra on Tuesday 29th March leaving Cotonou in Benin at 7.00am from Place de l’Etoile in a mini-bus run by the company Tunde. Apart from the hassle at the borders of Togo and Ghana the journey went smoothly and we were met by Issa, Misthy’s brother. Issa works at the Accra...

The traffic was heavy, the road in a...
