Cameroon update – Nearly there with the roof


I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to post these pictures that Fred, the director of SEREP (Self Reliance Promoters NGO) sent me a couple of weeks ago. The progress has been very rapid, but they need another £350 to finish the roof. It would be great to achieve that before the rainy season returns.

Shiney new roof

Hei Predencia,
It is my pleasure to update you again.  You can now see that the upper front has been roofed and then part of the upper back part almost half way gone.  
Only a bit more to go

Only a bit more to go

Yesterday we had a staff social and send off for Niki and I passed your greetings and all what you have done to make the roofing go up to this level. They were all happy and send you greetings to extend their appreciation to the donors.
Your efforts has given us a lot of hope and bright future for this project.
As soon as we get more zinc to continue, I will still get back to you with the progress.
Yours sincere.
Wirkom Fred

Please let me know if you would like to contribute to this phase. To nick a well know supermarket’s phrase… every little helps.

  1. Great to see that you have updated the progress and update. I have attached the pictures in a mail for you to get it posted. We are working hard and every one is happy about the progress being facilitated by you.

  2. Hello Predencia (Bongkiyung)

    What a great move?. We got the money and did not get to the office. We passed straight through the building material shop and bought one and half bundle of zinc which is now completing the roof. It wonderfully appreciated and a surprise to many.
    The roofs will be completed today and we will through a Chicken up to the Carpenter as a tradition before he would come down from the roof. This is a sort of celebrating an achievement of the roofs having completed. The chicken will be eaten at the site. I am sending you the progress pictures and to send to you the completed one later.

    I am just very excited as I cannot wait until it is finished this afternoon before a get to you. You are rally a star. God has given you a wonderful gift of approach for fund raising. I cannot imagine that only three of you raised that huge sums of money. If you did not come to Cameroon who would have done this to us. God alone knows why he really directed you to SeReP.

    I will use the over 5000frs to buy the ceiling to cover the just the veranda s you can see from the stay way in front of the office which you supported to be put into use last time. We really thank you so much for what you have done. I hope others will follow and get on with the Ceiling, plastering, fitting of the windows and doors, painting and so.

    The students will have to welcome you at the buss stop if you will be coming in November in the morning. May you really be blessed.
