For the first time in a long time we have had to fetch water for the site. The mains has stopped flowing for nearly 5 days and all of our reserves are used up.
Add to that the fact that fuel for the cars and generator went up 20% on Sunday and cooking gas (propane) went up 50% and you start to get the idea that we have a tough time coming up. The city is on load shedding with power outages several times per week. Although we generate our own power at Kpong it just went up 20% with the fuel prices. ..and there are rumours of another fuel shortage on the way.
Not to worry, things are still better than in the past a and we strive forwards with cheer.
