Bulrushes Home – Uganda

Greg, Sonya Yamnitz and I are in Uganda, Africa. We are here to check out a project we want to be a part of this summer with Go Global. Since this is Greg and mine first trip to Uganda, we are getting the full tour. Today we went to see the Baby Watoto, the Bulrushes. It’s a home for orphaned babies under the age of 2. Most of these children’s parents have passed away because of the civil war in Uganda or the AIDs epidemic here in Africa. It’s part of Watoto’s plan to care for children in a family like atmosphere. Watoto is the arm of KPC, an awesome church here in Kampala. The babies were all so cute and healthy and playful. It was fun to hang out with them! We had a great time and love what this church is doing to care for orphans.

    I have recently returned from Uganda after working in 2 hospitals as a midwife for a month. Iganga hospital and Nsambya hospital. I also had the opportunity to visit bulrushes for the day, it was amazing. We also visited the Watoto village where these babies go once they are over 2 years old and the houses in which they will live in. It is a wonderful project, very inspiring and i hope i will be able to visit again one day.
