The day has come to say goodbye to the sweet little faces of Uganda and travel home to our own families. We will take with us memories and happy thoughts of another 6,000 children sleeping on their new beds with a warm blanket to cover them and a mosquito net to protect them.
We will take home the pictures etched in our minds of the smiles and "Sanku's" [Thank you's] that we were given when the children were handed their new bed kits. And we will take home the new-found friendships developed with our team mates and the ladies of the Inner Wheel.

So instead we say: "See you next time."
Our team has just finished the final distribution in the photo at left. The child who received the final bedkit has six Canadians around him, holding on to one another and wishing that this moment of exhilaration could last forever.
We have represented our many donors and together we have brought meaning to the words of the late Murray Dryden: "It is every child's right to have a peaceful night's sleep."
