Florence & Yokana Kalule are a senior couple sponsored by a UK couple called Paul & Gill.
See below the translated letter written by Yokana to his lovely sponsors, where in it he shows his and his family’s appreciation for their new loo.
“Dear Paul & Gill
Warm greetings to you dear friends in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
How is your life and work? I thank you for the work that you are able to do. How are your children and grandchildren? Let me hope that you are all in good health.
I have also been okay and happy together with my wife and the grandchild. My wife is so grateful for what you are able to do for us as a family without any hesitation.
I take this opportunity to appreciate you for all the good things that you have done for me this year.
I thank you with much joy for the pit latrine that you constructed for me. Thank you, so much dear friends. My latrine is looking so nice with a sit on; my legs had become so weak to bend them while squatting. My family and I pray that God reward you with much more.
I thank you for all the medical support that you give me. Whenever I get ill I get treatment on time. However much my legs are still hurting, at least there is an improvement. I am really grateful and God bless you.
Yokana Kalule Ssalongo”
