2013-08-27 visit to Kasangati, Kampala

A day in the Kampala suburb of Kasangati that I’d visited last November with my Danish friend Berit. This time was to catch up with two of Berit’s friends – Florence and Aisha. I arrived by taxi at Kasangati and promptly rang Florence to come and collect me from where I could find my way. She walked down and we headed back to her place for a visit and to catch up. Well Florence has been busy in the past year and her dream of a small school for children with intellectual disabilities is now a reality. I’d missed the session that morning but saw some remarkable results on her computer and in lesson books – awesome Florence!!

Then we headed to visit Aisha an grandmother with severe diabetes who looks after many grandchildren. Berit has a real soft spot for Aisha and so do I!! Last year her grandkids posed for some amazing portraits so it was great to head back with my laptop to show them. I’ll return with prints soon.  The kids ran out and hugged me as son as they saw me coming which was so touching….. it was a great visit and I’m going to call in again before I leave for New Zealand in September.
