This project serves a double purpose. It is intended, i) to preserve memory of the games for a future generation, and ii) to thank - during the 'Long Lent' of the ongoing pandemic (2020) - generous donors from Australia and the United Kingdom who have contributed to these schools (and churches, villages and hospitals) over many years.
