>Wow its October already… time flies when youre in Uganda!
Street clinics started in their new location this week. Having a semi permanent place to hold them is a great help as it means we can have a concentrated session with the kids without interpution. This week we met with a small group twice and spent time tallking about their backgrounds and lives on the street in order to ascertain how to best assist them. Next week we’ll start doing some counseling with them and hopefully some filming too.
The team also managed to restore a child called Frank to home this week after he was found badly injured on the street. He was chased both the police and fell into a drainage ditch breaking both legs. The team provided immmediate first aid care and the took him home to his parents for medical attention.
We’ve found a trainer for the bead workshops in Mafubira and will consult with the community next week with a view to starting production the week after. This community project is alot quicker to set up than the carpentry workshops and with good sales around Christmas time, will provide immediate revenue for the community.
It Friday afternoon here in Jinja and time for the weekend to begin. Its independence day this weekend so we’re hoping for some good celebrations!
Until next week,
Inogen and Emma
