International Projects

The International Projects team are incredibly busy with projects in Kenya, Uganda and across eastern Europe.


I'm Kit Wellens, I lead the team that concentrates on international projects. The following pages show our activities: in Kenya where we have brought fresh drinking water to villages near Meru; in Kenya we also support a school in Mikroshoni; and across eastern Europe where we provide gifts for orphans in poorer countries like Romania, Estonia and Ukraine. Currently we support TUSC Uganda wit the maintenance of their ambulance that used to transport sick Ugandan children to medical facilities.
