Namugongo - Kira Town, Kampala Uganda
Don Bosco Child And Life Mission - CALM
It is a week now, for me to be back in Poland in the new-old scenery of life, but all the time as the time passes by, and the days are running so fast, the thoughts are still going back, as if trying to see or to find somewhere the days which were so much filled with joy and happiness, the days we spent in Africa, and most especially at CALM – Namugongo (Uganda). This is a place so much written in my heart.
After us is a full year of preparation in Salesian Mission House in Warsaw for the missions.In May we got the decision where and who will go for the missionary experience, and for us it was: Africa – Namugongo – Don Bosco CALM.
Though in different times, but finally all of us reached the place happily and safely. In the group we formed for the missionary experience we were: Wojtek Zawada, Anna Juszczakiewicz, Joanna Skalba, Marta Wilinska and me, Maja Eggert.
In CALM there is no time to be bored. There is always something to do. Wojtek does rather more technical things, for us girls, we spend our time with the boys, and we paint, draw, help them in doing their homework or engage ourselves in the sport activities. Boys also engage themselves in different things, some serve in the church; others are in the brass band or in the acrobatic group. It happens that while playing and so on the boys fall down, get minor injury, and then we enter into action as nurses.
From the time we came to CALM there has always been something happening. Behind us are the days of sports in Kira Primary School-volleyball, basketball and football. All the points were counted, the winner emerged and the prizes were given: t-shirts, sweets etc.
