.Water Aid - 21st May
Jez from SES Water Company talked to the Beavers about the work of Water Aid.
He explained the work carried out in Bangladesh on improving sanitary conditions, thus improving the health of the population.
He explained that water was on restricted supply, the supply only being available for a short while every day and the women queued from 4.30 am til 8.00 am when the pumped was switched on. They didn’t have enough water to wash their hands – only for drinking and cooking. The toilets were canvas shelters over a river – when the river flooded during heavy rain the water level would rise and flood the houses which are built on stilts.
Fields at Natbubia were used to grow rice but this was no longer possible because of rising sea levels causing the flooded fields to be too salty.
At Aziz Bosti water pumps have been installed and residents can collect water at any time thus improving hygiene and improving health.
The Beavers played games transporting water between buckets, balancing on one leg with their eyes shut and racing to walls representing different aspects of water use.
Friday 18th May - 13 of the Beavers joined the Cubs & Scouts at Jordan Heights where we completed the assault course and practised fire lighting. We finished the evening with hot chocolate & marshmallows.
