Visitors for March, 2009

Our visitors this month came from Canada, USA, England,  and Germany.  I forgot my camera worked even though the computer did not, so I did not take pictures.


Sarah Ketchly from Seattle and her son Tom Wilson from the UK and US arrived with shoes from their daughter's brownie troup in Seattle and soccor shirts and shoes and were the hit of the month.


During the time of the flu invasion, we were blessed with two first aid people from Canada, Brittney Merryweather and Kathleen Fleming, and an RN from Colorado, Karen Klein.

Our Update for February, 2009

Greetings from Mama Arlene and Urukundo Kids for February, 2009!

I'm running a bit behind this month, but I'll blame that on February only having 28 days.  Next month, I will get the newsletter out on time (since March has 31 days.)

Last month I promised an update to what you have made possible at Urukundo Home for Children in 2008.  We have so much to be thankful for as our hard work is making a difference in the lives of so many.

2008 has been a blessed year and I thank you all for your support in this sometimes hard, but ultimately rewarding work.

Hope Made Real Vs. the Flu

David at 4 months old.

Wonderful news for everyone: David has recovered from the pneumonia and bronchitis and is full of energy again.

The flu has made its presence known. All the children have been ill this month except for Luki, and he has had the sniffles, so that really does not count I suppose.  Our staff has also been down because of illness.  We had a bad scare when one of our staff tested positive for Malaria and Typhoid.  The test proved to be defective and we breathed a sigh of relief and thanked God.
