Karen Duncan – July 2018

I loved every moment of my time at Uganda Lodge.  I thought the accommodation and food were excellent and everyone was very welcoming and helpful during our stay.  It was a privilege to be able to be part of your community for a short time, especially working with the children.  It is great to see the new building being used now too! I hope to return to Uganda Lodge at Easter and I think some of the scouts are planning a return visit next summer.

 

Thank you again,

 

Karen

Fiona Adams – June 2018

I visited Uganda Lodge in June with a friend, and had the most amazing experience. The lodge is next door to the school, and our highlight was serving porridge at 6.30am most mornings for the borders. Although most volunteer do the 10am porridge. The children are truly amazing, and full of laughter and smiles. At break time, children will get the drum and practice the songs, or play football in bare feet. The sound of laughter is one I will never forget.

Everyone involved in Uganda Lodge makes you feel welcome, and the lodge and school itself looks onto amazing mountain scenery.

The time goes so fast and wish I would have been able to stay longer. Denis and Ann started the project and have achieve so much, giving the children the chance of education. We helped with buying sewing machines, and fabric for the Vocational Centre so once leaving school they can acquire a skill.

I can not wait to go back in the future and next time I want to take my children.

 

Thanks Fiona

today I went to the medical center.

14 babies came in for revision. we looked at their weight, temperature, height, etc etc. i was happy to see that the majority of the babies were healthy. but i literally filled up with tears when some of the babies came in. one of them was 6 days old, her name was Kamusime Blessing, she was only 2 kg, which is extremely little, and had bruises all over her skin, i checked her medical card and her mum had already lost 3 children. it broke my heart. i find it so frustrating, in europe you will never see the option “3 or more children in family dead” to check in in the medical cards, while here, it’s a “normal” thing… it shouldn’t be normal, it really shouldn’t. 90% of the babies were using paper and plastic bags instead of dippers. so many children out there bragging about their newest iphones while other children can’t even afford menstruation pads. the world is so unfair. it makes me sick



Lorraine Wing-Tosh‎ to Ruhanga Development School 12 July at 10:56 ·

How blinking brilliant that Ive been able to visit this amazing place not just once but twice. I can’t recommend a better way to spend a few weeks holiday. This school has been funded and built from sheer determination, a love of Uganda and the support of many kind people that have given money to this cause. Friday Denis dreamt of giving the families of this village and the surrounding area, a better start in life than he and many others had. With the help of Ann McCarthy, this dream has become a reality. Ann and Denis work tirelessly to ensure the school continues to receive funding and support to nurture these young Ugandans into well educated adults. If you are considering a holiday with a difference, that makes a difference, look no further than the Ruhanga Development School!
