British High Commission helps Tembari children

National, Normal

THE British High Commission is the latest entity to come to the aid of the Tembari Children Care (TCC) centre at 7-Mile.
High Commissioner Dave Dunn said funds the High Commission raised from a fun-run last week would all go to the TCC.
Suzanne Laister, executive assistant to Mr Dunn, took a team from the high commission to TCC last Thursday to discuss with its founder Penny Sagembo the possibility of assistance to be extended.
Initially, the team would install water storage facilities for the centre and provide it with a set of power generators.
“TCC does not have electricity supply,” Ms Laister said.
She also said the commission would provide the centre with a printer to complement a laptop which was donated by American air hostess Diane McLae, who also visited TCC last Thursday.
Ms McLae donated medical supplies, powdered milk, clothing, footwear, chocolates and other items.
Ms Laister said they were still collecting the pledged money from the fun-run activities and  more individuals had come forward to donate in kind and cash.
TCC is a care group that looks after 83 orphans at the ATS Oro settlement.
TCC is able to provide lunch to the children from Monday to Saturday through the help of individuals and corporate donors.
