Snakes and ladders

Wednesday 15th

After a few days of not feeling too well with a tummy bug, it was good to see Julie H back in the fold.

We headed today to a village in Nsenge district and saw projects in progress and even helped out mudding a mud hut wall, which was just an excuse for adults to play in mud!

We met some of the project recipients, including Gertrude who lost her husband in 2008, and has been raising the 7 children alone. Now through funds raised by UgandAid, she was being built a brand new brick house by NVI. To round the story off beautifully, one of her daughters, Jacqueline, has just started studying catering at NVI as one of the UgandAid students. This opportunity gives the whole family a chance to change their lives.

There's a blog in December 2016 with a full description of all the projects. Thank you so much to everyone who fundraised and donated.

A lovely lunch cooked for us by local ladies and followed by six groups playing games of snakes and ladders designed and made by Sue. The games provided an interactive way to discuss good health care for pregnant women and the importance of the health clinic. Great fun was had by all.

Ola once again had a queue of needy customers at her wonderful foot clinic.

The village had such a great community, it was very humbling.
