Braveagle recently in July represented Corinthia Hotels
on a charity mission in conjunction with Just a Drop
in order to inaugurate water supplies from two water holes at Tabata –Bima in Dar Es Salaam. seven distribution points, brings water for the first time to 30,000 residents including 10,000 school children.
Tony Potter, President of Braveagle attended and spoke at a ceremony to celebrate the event at the Tabata Junior School.
International water aid charity Just a Drop collaborated with St Mary’s Foundation to construct two boreholes which will provide the Tabata community – including two schools - with access to a piped water supply. “Currently, most Tabata households have no access to a water supply. This forces them to buy water from neighbours or water vendors – which they can rarely afford. Otherwise, the heavy burden falls on women and children to walk long distances to fetch water for their daily needs.” said Dr Rwakatare.
The project, made possible through the sponsorship of Corinthia Hotels, a collection of luxury hotels, will support 30,000 people with clean, affordable, drinking water. The ceremony paid tribute to this through colourful dance performances by some of the pupils at Tabata Junior School, and a poem recital which thanked the founder of Corinthia Hotels, Mr Alfred Pisani
