If pictures speak a thousand words, then this will be my longest post ever. There is too much to say to about our trip to Uganda with I Am Safe World to summarize in just a 500 word post.
So instead, I thought I would just let you see what we saw. A story through pictures.
1. Much of our team crowded inside our van. Little did we know how much time we would spend in here. It was a 1 hour commute one way each day to the hospital.
2. A view of the Nile River near it’s origin.
3. Our guest house for the week in Mbale.
4. These people are getting their water for the day. No just to wash things, but to drink. Dirt and everything. I have heard about this, but now I have seen it happen.
5. The hospital in Bugobero.
6. Amanda holding a newborn.
7. A small child in the local market. He was walking around eating sugar cane. With his butt hanging out of his pants. There were no signs of his mother. I’m sure she was there somewhere, but we never identified her.
8. Amanda in front of Sipi Falls.
9. Me. In action.
10. The bumpy, but beautiful, road to the hospital.
11. The orphanage we visited just outside of the city called the Lulwanda Children’s Home. The assistant director is an incredible young woman from Texas named Natalie Rolfe. You can learn more about Natalie here or how to support the orphanage here.
12. The reflection of the sunset just beyond the mountains.
13. Two beautiful kids.
