Pottery project in Melakula set to support the local community
Alistair Whyte has launched a fundraising campaign to purchase a diesel generator for the pottery project in SW Bay, Melakula and asked us to spread the word. The Whyte family have featured in our sailing log many times and the yacht has transported equipment and materials for the pottery project as an aside to the medical work. This is a very worthwhile project as it is reviving an ancient skill on the islands and creating a cottage industry.
Check out this site for project details and a chance to donate to this fantastic cause. Depending on the donation amount you might end up with a beautiful piece of handmade pottery.
