On the ground in Kampala
All good here. thankful for a sommoth trip over with emirates. the 24hr transit seemed to go relatively quickly with some valuable sleep on route. Met with Liam Chapman in Entebbe, a GP from UK who is involved in training village hhealth workers in Gulu, Northern Uganda. This is inn co operation wiith local churches. We enjoyed sharing and learning from each other. Just preparing myself for the 8 hr bus trip to Kitgum. Have a bag of bananas, muesli bars and water. Looking forward to meeting again with my friends in Kitgum at CKS. Ready to start some hhard work with the medical team tomorrow!
