African Adventure Day 4

We woke this morning to another beautiful day, and although we are feeling tired after our busy week, we were ready for more activities. One of the biggest problems we still have to solve is getting access to clean water for the villagers. We learnt about Wecelina Chalk and her family who have dug their own well, but still have a three mile walk to and from their home to fetch water, which is still contaminated. We set out on a walk of our own to see just how difficult a task she has.



Our walk took us along the cliff-top, and wound down to the beach where we undertook a scavenger hunt.


Upon our return (having walked a distance equal to just over a quarter of the total distance Wecelina has to cover daily), we competed to fill our water containers.
