Namugongo - Kira Town, Kampala Uganda
Don Bosco Child And Life Mission - CALM
In the due course of this year (2013), the Salesians Community of Don Bosco-C.A.L.M (Children and Life Mission) Kira- Mulawa- Namugongo, was blessed with a huge gift from the New Rochelle. Through its sharing hand all over the world, the World Vision surprised the Don Bosco CALM Community with a fully packed container that contained different items. It was such a huge and long container that left part of the Don Bosco CALM Community main entrance and the road down blocked for users. However, the container still found its way inside the community and the items that were packed in different sized boxes were unloaded from it by around 140 boys since the rest were still at school. The boys were guided by the Reverend Fathers, Uncles, Brothers and Aunties. It took the boys almost 2 hours to complete the unloading process and arranging the boxes in the store. Among the items in the boxes, they included; T-shirts of several colors and sizes, jackets, jeans, shorts, women and men belts, ladies’ shoes, necklaces, bags, watches, earrings, bangles, Toms shoes, jumpers, sweaters, jerseys, to mention but a few.
But as it is a culture in all the Salesian Houses, a slogan “In Don Bosco we share,” could not go unnoticed. Therefore, the items were later divided such that even the Salesian Communities of Bombo-Namaliga in Luweero District and Kamuli in Kamuli District respectively could also have a share of this great gift from the New Rochelle
