So, the internet connection in Mozambique was very intermittent. I posted some of my video blogs whilst I was away but not all of them so please follow the links listed on this page to the correct videos on our You Tube Channel
Mozambique Trip / Fundraising
So I thought it would be interesting to find out what my 11 year old daughter, Lucy, thought about my trip to Mozambique. She is quite a deep thinker and has been very interested in what I will be doing with WaterAid. We also support a child called Odator in Zambia through ActionAid and Lucy often writes to her and so she is very excited that I will be going to meet children who suffer the same struggles as Odator has.
So on Friday 7th October I attended my first WaterAid Supporters Day. What an inspirational day. We heard from supporters who had visited countries where WaterAid is working to bring safe water, sanitation and hygiene to everyone and I finally got to meet the rest of Team Mozambique!
So today I got a little package in the post... share the moment with me as I discover a device that I have been curious about since I saw it on Dragon's Den many years ago! I am hoping this little gem will be of use to me on my trip to Mozambique where there will be little or no sanitation in many of the places we are visiting. Hopefully this is something the work of WaterAid will change, with your help and our help.
Todays video diary is about rainwater harvesting... hurrah! Rainwater is critical to the lives of those who do not have access to mains water in the way we do and today's blog is about Stormsaver's vision, what we believe and how WaterAid plays a part in this.
I decided that making a video diary might help all of you to share and understand my experience of visiting Mozambique in a more personal way. I will be starting with my preparations leading up to the trip... how I am feeling and what I am doing. Then I will keep video diaries when I am in Mozambique so that if you are following my journey, you to can experience and see first hand the work that WaterAid is doing.
So there is one month to go before we embark on our visit to Maputo. We have all had our inital briefing and todays blog will explain the mix of emotions that I am feeling at this stage.
Hi, Lisa here! For the next 3 months I will be commandering the Stormsaver blog so that you can follow my journey learning more about WaterAid and the work they do, not only in Mozambique, but all over the world.
