Since our camp opening in May 2008, ACK staff and volunteers have used a basin in the shower area. While most of us were dealing well with this, we know how nice a good shower feels after a day in the field.

Repeat volunteers like Peter Barber understand this. Peter came from Canada in January with pully's in his suiitcase. Rope, bucket, tap and wood were purchased in Salama. Peter used our existing shower facilities to hoist the bucke high enough for every member of our team.

While the hot water is still boiled over the fire for those who want their showers hot, a black bucket sits in the sun most days and warms water for those who can deal with ambiant temperature.

The main thing is that we are comfortable and clean!
