PUBLIC HEALTH improvements in West Africa is the goal of two Welsh graduates who arrive in Gambia tomorrow.
David Hornblower and Sarah Munks have travelled to the country to continue a project started last year (NCE 9/16 August).
Hornblower and Munks will spend the next two weeks building toilet blocks and refuse repositories in Gambia before two more graduates, John Cotton and Max Biles, finish the job in December.
The project in Gambia is running alongside a similar project in Uganda, where Nick Price and Sarah McNae arrived two weeks ago. They return tomorrow, with their work taken on by Chris Sinclair, Phil Lawrence, Becky Marsay and David Brook.
The team has raised £12,000 to cover the cost of construction materials and labour in both countries, but further funds are needed for contingencies.
