Today is the start of Week Four of the Kumi Community Foundation’s ONE MILLION STEPS FOR KUMI walk in June 2020. The steps are adding up, our fitness levels must be improving and will we hang up our walking boots at the end or continue to complete a million steps each? Rivers, bridges, woods, corn fields, stiles in all weathers have been part of our walks and I have learnt so much more about my local area often due to the extra distance caused by my poor map reading! Climbing over a six-bar iron gate when I was alone and truly lost must have been a sight worth watching! Walking with friends has been special after weeks of isolation and we have not run out of idle chatter. KCF news from Harriet and Ruth with a report that 770 COVID-19 cases are recorded with one death. We pray that this will not escalate further. The Teso people are used to times of great adversity and so have the ability to survive as best they can but poverty for the very poor is sometimes too great a challenge.
