Don Bosco Child And Life Mission - CALM
This Friday, 28 August 2014 our two volunteers from Poland (Marc and Awelina) woke up early packing their luggage. Within the CALM Community, you could hear the children voices sounding “Bye bye Mark, bye bye Awelina”. These two volunteers have been with us in Don Bosco CALM Community of Namugongo for 2 months. Their presence among the whole CALM Community was so inspiring contagious. For the little children of our community, these volunteers were parents, they were friends, and they were brother and sister. There is no way of staying with children and not being emotionally or affectionately touched. Though they are materially poor, they are joyful. “What makes somebody happy is not necessarly what s/he has, but what s/he is”. This was the view of Awelina and Mark revealing to Fr. Rector who was accompanying them to Airport.
To day we hard privilege of being visited by officials from Uganda Electricity Transmission Board. We received three officers by the names: Aheebwa dorcas, Ssebunya Wilson, Namugalu Deborah. This was on their community sensitization on the dangers of their product. In the attendance were 101 boys, these were the ones who were at home others hard gone to school.They begun by thanking the management for accepting them to come to sensitize the boys. They said so many people know the advantage of their product; light and the ability to run house hold and other appliances, among others. Forgetting to know the dangers which course damage and lose of lives.
