Every morning Samuel wakes up bleary-eyed and thirsty. He jumps off his top bunk filling the house with the sound of a large thud! Leaping down the stairs at full speed, a couple of steps further and he’s at the tap with a glass and drinking noisily.
Samuel finds this ‘Water Walk’ quite tough because he’s thirsty. But since we’ve been reading about the Monger girls out in Tanzania and people in the villages walking an average of six kilometres for water, he’s come to realise that this water walk is actually a short hop.
So we’ve decided to support the Monger girls fundraising venture with a sponsored walk of our own.
WILL YOU SPONSOR US to walk six kilometres along the banks of the River Thames on Friday 23rd May 2014 from Goring Gap to Whitchurch?
All the money raised will go directly to:
1. Dr Makori
He works on the islands in Lake Victoria and villages around Mwanza, Tanzania. He needs:
- Equipment like x-ray and ultrasound machines for his base clinic
And he plans to run a Mobile Medical Camp
- Providing practical healthcare and education on health and sanitation issues in remote villages
2. The Monger Family
To help purchase a Toyota Land Cruiser to reach villages where they are encouraging and equipping villagers to set up and run new businesses, build, sell and use fuel-efficient stoves and teaching about health and sanitation and SO much MORE!
Whatever you’re happy to give, please give.

Please note that Basingstoke Community Church has kindly agreed to collect the funds for us and administer the Gift Aid increase for offline donations. As the Mongers do work with more than one charity and Dr Makori is not a charity it is necessary to go through one central organisation to get collate the fund.
To get a better picture of Mwanza, Tanzania, Dr Makori and the Mongers head to The Monger girls’ Sodis Shake and Water Walk site.
