Launch of Water for Walgett Kids program

Water for Walgett Kids was launched at the Walgett Community College on 24 March 2015.  The water chiller has been in use since October 2014 and has been well used over the summer months.  The children received water bottles from the Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service, and we hope the Council will SOON turn on the Fluoride into the town water supply.

A water meter will monitor how much water is used, and check how it might vary across the year and seasons.

The WWK program was mainly funded by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, along with funds from the Rotary Club of Dee Why Warringah and Healthabitat.

We hope the kids will enjoy drinking the chilled water, which will have even more benefit once the water becomes fluoridated – especially for those kids who live out of town and don’t get access to town water.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
