After many months of preparation and anticipation the day finally arrived when we said “good-bye” to buckets and celebrated the completion of two brand new, flushing toilets! And two fabulous sinks! They are the first flushing toilets in the informal settlement of Zenzele, Randfontein. The project also included safely sealing up the old open sewage pit, making the grounds safe for children once again.
The working toilets will be appreciated by all that use St. John’s base in Zenzele… from the St. John’s Daycare held in the mornings (which will resume once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted) to the orphans collecting food and receiving support in the afternoons.
We are extremely grateful to the Rieken Famiy and Dobson Family for their generous donations which made this dream of “clean, flushing toilets” a reality!
