Uganda: Deep Contrasts

Kiboga, also a remote rural mountain area, was a three hour bus ride from Kampala.

Beautiful lush mountain vistas were juxtaposed beside other bus window- views of stark poverty.

Arriving at our site, everything was well prepared by our Inner Wheel site people. Like a well-oiled machine, it took less than 3 hours to distribute 585 bedkits.

Hot sunny skies prevailed as did sunny dispositions and warm hearts. This poor, remote community were so grateful for their bounty, it brought three parental interviewees to tears.

Our setting for lunch was the home of a Inner Wheel collaborative partner. The view from the yard where we shared our meal was breathtaking!

So many sites that take your breath and pull at your heart.

We continued on from there to our new hotel, happy to resettle and prepare for the next 6 distributions.

We're told that Uganda's rainy season is coming to an end...only one drizzly day so far. I know …..
