I wanted to update you all on the Island Project and the budget for the project. To date we have someone who will match funds up to $1500.00 and we have been pledged $1250.00. The project budget is $4700.00 and that will supply the water purification system, blankets for all for the children, a first aid kit and medical clinic for the day, starter livestock to help them get into another income source and food for all for the families. We are hoping to supply mosquito nets for the families to help reduce malaria. The pit latrine issue and roofing will be saved for another time. We will do the project in the middle of December and give everyone an update with pictures once completed.
