At the start of 2017 we take a look back at an event from the past year.
Care for Uganda are delighted with the ongoing development of the medical work in both primary and secondary health care. In September, in partnership with Hernia International, the Care for Uganda hernia team carried out over 70 procedures during their week in Uganda.
Here is a report by one of the team members:
It is always good to hear about youngsters who have completed the Care for Uganda sponsorship programme.
Moreen started on the sponsorship programme in 2001, when she was seven years old. Her father had died and her mother was struggling to bring up Moreen and her three brothers on her own.
Moreen's sponsor has been privileged to visit Uganda three times and was able to meet Moreen on each trip. She writes, "In 2006 I was introduced to Moreen in her old school classroom. The next morning, a Saturday, our party was going to be walking around the area and making home visits - I was moved when we arrived at the school to find Moreen had got up early and was waiting to greet us in her best dress. She insisted on carrying my rucksack for me all morning. We chatted as we walked along and Moreen told me of her ambition to be a teacher.
