Catastrophe at Don Bosco CALM Namugongo.

The roof of the primary school Don Bosco Namugongo flew this night around 1. 00 AM. Some parts of the roof flew up to the entry of the Salesian community.  This was due to frequent  torrential rains shaking these deays Uganda in general and Kampala in particular. The heavy rain accompanied by  thunderstorms has made toggle the hope of the province of the AGL to open a Don Bosco primary school in January of next year 2016.The rain of the previous night had destroyed the angle of the top, from the west side, which supports the roof. The destroyed part has left a large hole through which the wind of this last night passed. The engineer was immediately alerted and together we decided to prevent the catastrophe by mobilizing workers not later than Monday 21/12/2015. Unfortunately, man sometimes decides and the nature decides otherwise. Now the catastrophe has occurred, and we are assuming its terrible consequences. By this time, the Engineer is at the place trying to calculate the costs of the damage.  And he promised to engage its workers this Sunday morning to try to prevent the whole building from falling down in case the same vigorous rain comes back tonight.


In addition to that, the tank of water of 10,000 liters serving the community with water also got broken and fell down. As the iron sheets were flying over the fence of the community they took the giant tank installed and lifted in front of the door that leads to the primary school from the community side. The poor tank, struck with great pressure by the sheets in stampede, did not resist at all. Roughly, it fell down and was broken into two pieces. The pipes serving and deserving the tank were also broken by the furious windy rain.

The sleeping room of Brother Robert Dias was also affected. The external glass of the window  was completely broken into miniature pieces. But thanks be to God, his health is kept intact. Meanwhile, if nothing is done to rebuild immediately the roof properly, and rebuild the destroyed part of the school, even the chaos might occur and we shall regret for not having intervened as early as possible. This is the occasion to ask a helping hand from people of good will to come on our rescue
