Mission Trip to Kabbubu, Uganda
by Fiona Barnett
Here are a selection of photographs of some of the Ugandan children we worked with in
Kabubbu last week as part of the work of Quicken Trust to a 'forgotten people'.
Myself and two of our daughters, Emma and Michelle spent 10 days out there
performing in the school, in the Church, in assembly and leading two workshops
amongst all the other volunteering stuff.
Painting the Foster home,
brick-throwing in a chain to build the High School latrine(!), visiting our
sponsered children and taking part in the Development Challenge - deciding how
to use £100 in the best possible way to help a very poor family in the
village. Ruth's priorities for her family were food, house and mattress. So we
bought her rice, posho, beans and sugar, fixed guttering to her house into a
water butt to prevent the mud around the foundations being washed away, bought
her a third mattress so that the children were not sleeping on wooden slats and
paid for her son to receive antibiotics to clear up his ear infection (cost 60p)
and added a few chickens too. We would have liked to fix the holes in the roof
but couldn't get hold of a ladder!
We left the puppet staging out there
and some puppets with ideas for the adults as to how this could be used as a
resource. Wonderful time! And decidedly warmer than the UK!
