Welcome to UgandaPanda! We’re in Uganda long term partnering with NZCMS. We live 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 our being.
Nick is a medical doctor with a masters in public health. He has 3 roles. He sees patients at St. Philips health center, manages 9 rural health centers for the Diocese, and has co-founded the social enterprise OneDay health, which launches sustainable health centers in remote rural areas. The first hub of 9 OneDay health centers is up and running, and we hope the initiative can grow.
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
