TEAM UGANDA: FUN DAY

May 13, 2018

I want to tell a story as tall as a giraffe, but it’s a little spotty.

There aren’t really words to describe the breathtaking experience of an actual African safari, only that everyone should experience it once in a lifetime. During this trip I have had the opportunity to check three things off my bucket list: I have met incredible teammates, shared our stories and made a phenomenal impact on the people and communities of Uganda. But the best part, the most important part, is the impact Uganda has made on me.

I am taking away a renewed spirit and passion for service and that in itself is priceless.

TEAM UGANDA: CLINIC DAY FIVE

We drove to clinic with an understanding that today was our last day of this week’s mission to help the people of Uganda. We were intent on finishing our service with every bit of strength and love as we started with at the beginning of the week. One of our interpreters brought us mangoes, which we enjoyed for breakfast. We later were able to see her mother for treatment. A young boy was served by our therapy team and was given an adaptive chair. Our provider team was able to stitch up a young girl’s hand that was cut by a machete. The nursing students from Trident Tech assisted and provided comfort for the patient while she received her medical care. Our pharmacy team was busy dispensing medications until the last minute before we packed up. We will not forget the people we met and what it meant to work together to provide care and comfort to the beautiful people in Uganda.
