Dining Hall and Security Fence
Bon Samaritain is an Orphanage in Benin, West Africa which looks after 70 children who face difficult situations including physical abuse, trafficking, children accused of witchcraft and children in conflict with the law.
This project provides children with a modern dining hall and the construction of a boundary wall to deliver appropriate security. At the moment, the site is open and the children are exposed in particular to snakes attracted by the centres livestock. The livestock also the prey to thieves and snakes, which reduces the ability of the centre to feed the children in a sustainable fashion.
Providing Orphans with Access to Clean Water
Bon Samaritain faces enormous challenges related to clean water. The existing well from where the orphans draw water for their daily basic needs has become unclean and contaminated. Sometimes, especially during the dry season, worms appear in the well, causing many waterborne diseases.
