Choongo Challenge

HHI is 25 years young this year, and to celebrate we are launching the Choongo Challenge – to raise £25,000 to provide a second dormitory block to relieve the chronic overcrowding that disabled children, who live far away from the special needs unit at Choongo School and have to board there, face.  The present block is shared by both boys and girls, and is so crowded that children are having to share beds.  They describe their plight here.  ( ).

We have made a good start – our team in Strathaven have said that the £6,000 raised on their behalf by the Round Strathaven 50 cycle event can be used for this.  So only £19,000 to go!  Can you help?  If so, please give here ( or send us a cheque or bank transfer.  We will require 7,000 bricks, so £4 will enable us to buy the equivalent of one brick, £20 six bricks, £50 for a door, £200 for the plumbing, £600 for the electrics, £1,000 for the foundations or £3000 for the roof.

Go on – be a brick!
