Isle of Wight based Kenyan charity Uzima In Our Hands has announced that their kitchen at the Uzima Day Care Centre in Kenya is now operational.
They were able to purchase some very large pots on their recent visit. The size was needed so they would be big enough to cook two meals a day for the 290 children. Now, the cook will be able to move from the shack that was previously the kitchen into the purpose built building financed by Uzima in Our Hands.
It will still be fuelled by burning wood, but with a flue to take away the smoke it will make it significantly more tolerable (and healthy) for the cook.
The charity are also hosting an informal social evening on May 26 at the West Wight Sports and Community Centre where attendees will be able to hear about the latest developments they will be working on in the forthcoming months. Along with a few nibbles and teas and coffees available, the talk will focus on future plans to develop the activity of the charity here in England as well as the work they need to do in Kenya.
