On Sunday, 19th May, 4 ladies made 50 cups of Mango Lassi and, selling them at 3 CHF each, should have raised 150 CHF for our Drink Water Projects in South Sudan + Uganda.  Instead, thanks to the generosity of the ESCM community and of the members of the fund-raising group, they somehow ended up with 370 CHF in a very short space of time!  Many thanks to the 4 ladies who prepared the Mango Lassi, Amelia Nameeta, Marina Lafrenaye, Samantha de Mello, Tereza Cloughesy – and to Tom Wright and his daughters for their selling technique!
