On a gorgeous Monday morning we woke up with rain beating down for some Chipatis and Rolexs and had a lovely breakfast, but because it was raining we had to eat inside. At 9:00am we left Suubi House and headed for the ‘Home of Hope’ in a packed van. We arrived there and made our way inside while the rain cleared. One of the workers there, Edith told us the story of her son and his disability from Meningitis and that how he had passed away, sadly and that he is now living with God. So this inspired her to start up the ‘Home of Hope’, which is a home for severely disabled children. We walked through the house – this was a surprising, confronting and sad experience seeing all of the kids disabilities. After that, half of us split up to either start building the new kitchen out the back or do some activities with the children. Today for the kitchen, we dug the trench for the foundation and finished the initial layer of bricks. The staff made us a spaghetti meal, which we stopped for then got back into work. We came home tired and exhausted after a long days work. Then we relaxed after our eventful day.
