And so the next adventure begins - or maybe it began a year ago when Gord said “I really want to help you guys raise funds for another project in Uganda”. The past year of feverish fund raising has certainly been an experience if not an adventure. The project has snowballed from a couple dreamers with few school blueprints to a large coordinated effort including 22 people traveling to Uganda each bringing skills and ideas. It has been a magical thing to be a part of.
We hope to be able to keep all our friends, family and supporters informed of our experiences over the next four months with this blog and - if it works from Bwera - Twitter. We have started a new Twitter account @podacanada.
Before we leave, we would like to say one BIG thank you to everyone who has made this project a reality. We are so lucky to be surrounded with so many supportive, generous and loving people. None of this would have happened with them.
We are at VYR now waiting to check in. We will send another update when we arrive and get settled at Mengo Hospital in Uganda. Catch you on the flipside.
