Welcome to UgandaPanda! We’re in Uganda long term partnering with NZCMS and will use this blog to share observations as we go. We’re living in a grass thatched hut in Lacor ‘suburbia’ surrounded by wonderful women who are working really hard to bring up their kids. Being an active part of our community and church is at the core of who we are and what we do.
Nick works as a doctor for the local Anglican Diocese doing some doctoring and some managing 13 small health centers scattered in surrounding villages. Tessa works with our local Church St. Catherines to organise the community. She’s part of a small group “Wakonye Kenwa” (The help is amongst us), who are trying to bring about positive, social change in the Lacor community, which includes fighting for better water access, and against the huge alcohol problem. Happy reading!
Grace and Peace, Nick and Tessa
