We are now heading into the second week of recovery from the flooding that hit Kyarumba on May 6. There is still sporadic flooding in the area, and more people have sought shelter at Musasa Primary School. Joseph tells me the current count is 257 families for a total of 1,754 people! With the help of your donations, Joseph has been able to distribute cassava flour, and to bring in safe drinking water to fill the water collection tanks at the school.

Much like the children in Canada and the U.S., the children in Uganda are being schooled by radio during the lockdown. When they are not taking lessons, of course, they play. The need is still very great, but where children are playing, you know that, ultimately, everything will be all right when this is over.
