Tom made a,visit to igerera village to take iron sheets for those that contributed for the iron sheets. Before he reached the village, he called the chairman to confirm the presence of the members for the distribution of iron sheets. After he bought 50 iron sheets and loaded them on a truck and headed for the village. When he reached the village, he found the chairman and some residents waiting. They offloaded the iron sheets and waited for the rest of the members to arrive. After there was a good number of members, the chairman opened the meeting were he thanked kibo for the good work it has done in the village especially in improving the sanitation and hygiene standards of the village. He thanked residents for working on there facilities as well as trusting him with the money they contributed towards the iron sheets. He also thanked them for wanting to improve more and encouraged them to continue improving even on other facilities. After, Tom was invited to speak to the residents.
