Shrewsbury MP joins local charity for 10th anniversary celebration in the House of Lords

To celebrate its 10th Anniversary, a Shrewsbury based charity held a special reception in the House of Lords, hosted by the Lord Speaker Baroness D’Souza which was joined by the Town’s MP.

Daniel Kawczynski joined charity ‘Village Water’ in celebrating their significant achievements supporting approximately 150,000 people with safe water, sanitation and hygiene education in rural Zambia over the past ten years.

The reception was also attended by Mr Mubiana Muyangwa from Village Water’s local partner organisation in Zambia, who talked about his experiences. In its tenth anniversary year, the charity has ambitious plans including supporting 20,000 people with safe water, sanitation and hygiene education and a further 3,000 people in schools and livelihood activities.

In praising the charity at the reception, Daniel said ‘I was very proud to see such an excellent Charity from Shrewsbury having their excellent achievements recognised and being invited into the House of Lords by the Lord Speaker. It was a pleasure to hear more about Village Water’s superb work in Zambia, as well as hearing from Mr Muyangwa about the improvements their work is having on the ground.

I would like to pay tribute John Irwin (Chair of Trustees) Clare Wearden (Director) and all the hard working staff and many volunteers who give their valuable time to make Village Water’s work such a success.’
