Marlene Rasmussen from the Diocese of Tarawa and Nauru  writes:

“The Parishioners of Taborio North Tarawa have built this toilet block with the 50/50 grant from MSC in Sydney. The toilet block is completed. It will be approximately AUD500 over budget. A great job. Some wages were paid to the initial supervisor. Meals were provided to the workers. The truck hire was expensive. The parishioners collected all the sand and gravel. The parish has a wonderful parish priest and an excellent parish chairman. Both very dedicated men. Although the parish is poor, they are capable and generous with their time and work.

This is a wonderful advancement for Kiribati. This can be achieved with very little finance and hard work. The facility will serve Taborio parish for many functions for many years. There is also a Catholic Boarding school about 2 km away from the toilet block.“
