Nearly there

Today there could be up to 1 million people travelling from all over Africa to be present at the Anniversary of the Uganda Martyrs. It takes place at Namugongo which is to the east of Kampala on the road to Jinja.

I was there a few years ago and it was a memorable occasion.

The Uganda Martyrs are a group of 23 Anglican and 22 Catholic converts to Christianity in the historical kingdom of Buganda, now part of Uganda, who were executed between 31 January 1885 and 27 January 1887.[1][2]
They were killed on orders of Mwanga II, the Kabaka (King) of Buganda.





This week is also the big week for the Annual Fundraiser which centres on the Golf Event organised by Trustee Charlotte Percy. Is a tough job!


The money we raise will all go to the eyesight restoration work we are doing in Jinja and to the next stage of the Asili Girls Secondary School at Lira.

Its not too late if you would like to help sponsor in some way. We set a big target this year and are nearly there!!
