We really look forward to our trips to Uganda, but the preparations can be hard work – sorting out what to take and what to leave behind, getting everything delivered on time and finally working out how to get it into too few suitcases – definitely a question of how to fit several quarts into several pint pots!
On this trip we are taking out all manner of much needed equipment and supplies, from a portable defibrillator, through educational toy and gifts for sponsored children to many dozens of pencils and pencil sharpeners. As we prepare everything to take out it helps us to remember just how lucky we are and how many things that we take for granted are not available within so many communities around the world.
Many thanks to all those generous donors who have responded to our appeals and helped us to accumulate such a wealth of goodies to take to Uganda.
Come back here frequently, we’ll be posting regular updates on the blog throughout our three week trip to Uganda.
