500 family toilets: Buriton’s link with Dominase reaches a major milestone

Buriton's ‘Village-to-Village’ charity has recently sent money to Ghana to help yet more families.

The recent funding will help improve living conditions, reduce risks of diseases and provide some privacy - often lacking for millions of people in Africa.

And this latest phase of work will take the total number of families helped by our ‘Buy a Bog’ initiative to 500.

Villagers in Buriton's “adopted” community of Dominase, in Ghana, are seeing more and more improvements in the health of the population, particularly young children, as a result of Buriton's programme of sanitation projects.

This programme of support for sanitation sees local families doing much of the hard work whilst money from Buriton pays for the relatively expensive materials such as bags of cement, roofing sheets and vent pipes.

The Buriton subsidy also pays a small wage to the skilled labourers (‘masons’) who have been trained as part of the programme and this helps to bring a bit more money into the local economy. 

If you would like to help with any of this work, please consider joining our 'regular giving' scheme by returning the Standing Order form at the end of this leaflet:
