WASH – Toilet Block

A massive thank you to those who have donated to help raise £260 of my £325 fundraising target. I have 3 days left of my 10 day goal and wanted to share with you what this money equates to on site. Roughly the £260 raised is the equivalent of approximately 40 bags of cement and today we completed a 40 bags cement pour.

Today’s concrete pour was once again for the WASH, (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project. This time for the lid of the septic tank, which also acts as the floor of the toilet block. Here are some pictures of the team, laying out and prepping the area before we got started.

Next the team in front of the mixer needed to prepare for the mix…

Then just like on the previous pour I was back on the movement of the wet mix, which this time was a little more difficult as we had to navigate a mini obstacle course to get to the slide we were sending the mix down.

and that is what 40 bags of cement can create when mixed into concrete 🙂
