A Bag of Cement

A Bag of Cement

Price: £15.00

Cement and bricks make much stronger, longer-lasting school walls than the wattle and daub or palm tree fronds that are traditionally used to build them in the countries that Children in Crisis works.This gift could help buy a bag of cement to be used in building the walls of a new school in Democratic Republic of Congo or Liberia.

How does your gift help?

The photo to the left is of the old school in Neegbah Community, Liberia. Working with our local partner, Children in Crisis replaced this school with a new one in which we used bricks, cement and deep foundations to build solid, durable walls. These walls keep the insects, the rain and the wind out of the classrooms, letting Neegbah’s children sit in comfort and soak up their lessons and not the weather.
