Hope Centre Burundi needs more funding:

International financial crisis hits Hope Centre:

Due to current money exchange rates the Hope Centre has hit a financial shortfall. When we started the building work the exchange rate was 2230 Burundi Francs to the pound, however the falling currency markets, in particular the pound means that now the rate stands at 1772 Burundi francs to the pound. This added to the rising cost of materials like cement means that the overall cost of completing the centre has risen considerably. We hope to find funds for this (your help would be appreciated) but if we don't then work may have to stop at the end of February until the funds are raised.

This picture shows work continuing for the time being, if you can help please click here to find the appropriate information.
