18 Nov Many thanks to all my friends!
Many thanks to all my friends who came to Chris Strode’s Mumbaba reunion. We raised £160 for EFOD (Engineers for Overseas Development) Chris’s son (Matt Bloodworth C.Eng) is greatly involved with Cardiff EFOD.
Their project for 2012/13 is the design and construction of the MITENGO footbridge over the Kanakantapa River in Zambia.
The beneficiaries will be the MITENGO women’s co-operative.
Their access to the nearest town of Chongwe is cut off during the rainy season because the usually small watercourse, becomes a torrent, and forces the women to walk an extra 5km to the town where they sell their home-grown products.
Any funds raised go direct to this and a local water management project.
