St. Anthony Candy Cane-Grams

Posted by Steve Hall on January 22, 2020

Every day, students from Patrivia Primary School in Uganda make the long walk to a protected shallow well and wait half an hour in line to collect water more than a kilometer away from their classrooms. Despite how time consuming and difficult this process is- students must walk along a steep slope through dense vegetation to reach the well- it’s the fact that the young children must cross a busy main road unaccompanied to reach the water source that is most concerning.

Students at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica School in TX sold candy cane-grams to help support the addition of a 10,000 liter rainwater collection system at the school. Students and teachers at Patrivia will soon have convenient access to clean, safe drinking water!
