Each year, Hampsthwaite Feast strives modestly to "do something for the Feast, something for the Village, and something for the world."
Since 2006, with the help of Trish Fenwick and the generous support of our sponsors, we have been able to support the establishment of the new village of Kachale in Zambia. Kachale is being built in the bush to accommodate the needs of orphaned healthly children from a nearby, and recently closed, leper colony
There's a small village of tragically displaced families in Zambia. But with the generous support, from your Feast last year, 250 men, women and children have been given a better chance. They are rejoicing as secure homes are being built for them in the new Kachale Village site. Food crops are flourishing in freshly tilled land and the children look forward to having their own village school before too long. A clinic on site is also planned and it will much reduce a huge amount of their suffering.
The 2006 money from Hampsthwaite will provide a classroom, resources and help pay a teachers salary.
It is with hope in their hearts, at last, that Mumba, Moses, Inonga and Ruthie all thank you for your continued interest and support. I wish I could bottle some of these children's song and laughter for you to share."
