Thank you for saving Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary,Uganda
Please accept our heartfelt appreciations for the contribution made towards saving us when the El Nino rains flooded Ngamba Island in January 2016. This was a crisis that threatened the destruction of the home of the 49 chimpanzees in our care at Ngamba Island chimpanzee sanctuary. Thank you Friends of CSWCT-USA , Pan African Sanctuary Alliance , Ruparelia Foundation and all the supporters who came to our rescue and provided different kinds of support. We have used your financial donations and various support to construct part of the retainer wall, which has been phased out into 4.
Excavation works at Ngamba Island
Phase 2 of the retainer wall was strengthening the wall from the pier to the smoking zone which required removing and disposing off the stump, roots, rubbish and debris broken down. They are to be removed for the smooth operation of the work. This was done to an average depth of 800mm in order to get the water table within that range. The too much water in the excavated trench led to the change of the foundation construction process. The hard cores were laid first in the trench before the foundation concrete was cast in order to obtain a safe firm base for the foundation.A masonry plinth wall was laid in a sand cement mortar of ratio (1:4) to an average height of 600mm.
