Samuel and Cameron both made visits to Rumbek during 2015. These were important in cementing our partnership with the Diocese of Rumbek and in ascertaining that the situation on the ground was safe & suitable for the project to proceed.
In November Cam joined Sam in Juba where they met with Rotarians, NGOs, and Government officials before proceeding to Rumbek to assess the state of play in Lakes State. In Rumbek we found everything to be peaceful and stable and the locals eager for a start to construction. Meetings were held with Fr John Mathiang & his colleagues, with other providers of primary education, with builders & drilling contractors (for the bore), local community leaders and other NGOs operating in Rumbek.
The message on Cam’s return: let’s get going with Stage 1!
