I'm taking a rest now the Open Day and the June Sunday coffees after Mass are over, Harriet is on Maternity Leave for a while longer, but Ruth continues to find more and more children in need of care and surgery.

2 & 3. Antony returns to the home of brain damaged boy to construct parallel bars from local materials to enable the child to stand and walk.

4 & 5. Prossy, a post polio paralysis amputee, receives her sewing machine from Ruth.

6. Letter of Appreciation from Janet, Headteacher at Adesso Primary School, for funding the volleyball teams to attend the annual tournament in Entebbe.

These children attended an outreach clinic with their parents and have been referred to Kumi Hospital for assessment by surgeons and rehab team.

Dear Kumi Community Foundation; a baby with cleft lip or palate should not wait for a team to fly to Uganda - free surgery and transport refund is available at CORSU Hospital in Kampala. The mother can board a bus tomorrow and will be given food, bed sheets and nutritional rehabilitation for the baby. I will send you their contact in an email.
