Off to Uganda to meet the refugees!

By Naomi Corera, February 21, 2017

Dear Friends,

Greetings! My bags are packed with the rosaries and balloons for the children. All set to go tomorrow for Uganda to visit the Ajumani Settlement. My main purpose in going is not just to meet the dear children but also to know where and how your generous gifts will be spent. CWE is very dedicated to showing you always the clarity of all expenditures. I will meet the Bishop and Brother Sanctus, who will be in charge of the construction of the St. Edigio Nursery School.

This afternoon I found out from the head teacher of the primary school that there are 210 students in the Grade 1 class, and 299 in the Grade 2 class. Thank God I will have enough balloons for them. So you see the need for the Nursery School which also will fill up fast.

I will return on Ash Wednesday just in time for the Lenten Suppers. So come and see the videos and hear all about the Refugees children from Congo and S. Sudan and be a part of the Pope’s Mission of welcoming the Refugees and sharing our Blessings with them.
