Last November, St. David's Anglican Church in Edmonton hosted its annual Silent Auction & Dinner, where parishioners raised just over $2000 for a fresh water development in the Diocese of Buyé, in Burundi. At the event, diocesan treasurer, the Rev. John Gee, gave a presentation on the development of simple safe water sources.
Rev. Gee recently received the following message from the diocesan secretary in Buyé, the Rev. Audace Kwizera, along with a video of a man collecting water from the new water spring.
"I would like to inform you that we have started using the money you sent on January 7, 2020 to construct a water spring. The area of the water spring is called Muhinzoga at Giteranyi parish." Rev. Audace Kwizera, Diocesan Secretary
