BUDDING photographers in Huddersfield can help school children in Africa gain safe access to drinking water.
Twenty two secondary schools are located on the remote island village of Ukerewe in Tanzania.
But none has an adequate water supply.
Now Huddersfield Rotarian John Philip is heading a project to install a pump and tank to supply water to one of the secondary schools, which has a total of 900 children.
The project, by the retired Huddersfield Royal Infirmary surgeon, is part of a major humanitarian intervention by Yorkshire Rotarians.
And Huddersfield people are now being urged to help their efforts by entering a water-themed photographic competition.
All of the money raised will go towards helping the children of the Lake Victoria island community by improving water and sanitation facilities.
John and other Rotary volunteers have already helped several aid missions to the third world.
John and his wife Chris, from Fixby, last year collected £100,000 worth of hospital, school and training equipment for the people living in the neglected community.
When John and his team visited one of the secondary schools in April they were told that the children had no access to water.
They also have to manage without water when they go to the toilet.
