Today is my last day in Uganda. Our group starts it voyage back to the USA tonight.
This morning, with our driver, I visited a new housing development (Kirinya Kito) on the outskirts of Kampala. Ugandans were hard at work constructing homes and tilling garden areas. When I asked about the water situation, they took me down to a recently developed spring. On the concrete wall next to the outlet was the following sign:
Komando Water Spring/funded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints/Constructed by Ywdan/2011
Boy was I surprised.
I was very proud of the LDS Church. But (there always seems to be a but) I wish we would do a lot more. The problems are so big. Please contribute to LDS Humanitarian Services.
