Lirhanzo Children’s Villiage Cook House
Fergal and Marg Fleming reported on their 2014 field trip to the Lirhanzo Children’s Village that the cooking facility was not safe and children and staff were walking in hot ashes.
They said the current cooking area was “wobbly and in need of replacement”. Local discussions with the Guardian mothers and Margret, the manager, agreed that a new structure, similar to one built at another project they supported in Uganda would be perfect for LCV.
Funding from staff at Royal Darwin Hospital was generously given, a local builder was employed and the new “Cook House” is up and running and the safety issues have been solved.
Perfect for African conditions it is an open structure with concrete flooring, a tin roof and is weatherproof under most conditions.
The Guardian mothers who cook for the children are very grateful.
