What do 2.5 billion people not have?

PharbangAt St Chrysostom’s we’ve recently made a connection with Pharbang, a remote area in Nepal.

Why?

Well –

Did you know?

More than a third of the people on our planet – that’s 2.5 billion people don’t have a safe, clean and hygenic toilet.

… and that’s terrible.

Toilet 1So we’ve ‘twinned’ one of our toilets at Church. How did we do it? It’s quite simple. For £60 we provided a loo in Nepal, and in one of our church toilets we proudly display a photo of the Nepali toilet that our toilet is twinned with. So in this simple and small way we have helped stop the spread of disease in this Nepali community. It’s a small step, let’s hope more will follow. Perhaps we’ll twin the other two toilets in Church?

How did we get the £60? Guests at Marc and Tanya’s wedding in Church were invited to give towards an appeal for Nepal and they raised the money! So thank you to them.
