About

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

    How do I subscribe to this boss? This seems a little more interesting for morning tea reading than the subscription of Woman’s Weekly on the coffee table.

      For me when I go to the website a little “follow” thing pops up in the bottom right hand corner. If you click on that you can probably subscribe.

        Hi Nick and Tessa,
        I have learnt about you when NZCMS presented on Saturday, the 3rd May 2014, in Our Church, ST. CHADS, Meadowbank, Auckland.

        Anyhow, I’m Peter, living in Auckland. I’m wondering if you may please do me a favour. My brother is studying in a college in Gulu, Uganda. He has hearing problems. And especially to NICK, I’m wondering is there is a way you may please help him to access audiology clinic at Locor Hospital. If yes, I’m willing to call you if you inbox me you contact. And we may discuss it from there. Kia Ora. Peter

    hello Nick and Tessa, I’ve enjoyed reading your blogs and so many of those situations happen here too. i’m in Tanzania, almost your neighbour, and originally from Nelson where the local CMS members give me lots of prayer support. i’ll look forward to hearing more of your adventures and in the meanwhile just be blessed in your work and your life.

      Thanks so much Susan, thanks so much for letting us know you’ve read some of these posts, we definitely feel blessed. Would be great to hear more about you and what you’re doing too! If you had a web link or even a short blurb we could read that would be amazing:)

    Dear team,
    I discovered your project through one of your representatives delivering a most enthralling presentation at Lichfield church last year.
    My sister-who is a teacher in the International School in Kampala, were both fascinated by your mission. We both contribute regularly financially. But I feel implicitly the need to ‘get involved’. So please could you forward any relevant information to markemarc63@virginmedia.com-regarding how I may become involved, possibly doing missionary work in Uganda.
    Yours faithfully
    Mark O’Leary
