With Juliet, our UK Director, in Uganda this week have been 2 families, the Bletchers and the Mills, who are great supporters of the charity.
Tim and Rebecca Bletcher and 2 of their children, Sasha and Holly, have been busy helping to renovate 2 houses in Bombo. They sponsor Jonathan and have been working on Jonathan’s parents’ house. They have also been investigating extending the provision of solar panels to houses in the Bombo area through their UK business, Rockscape Energy Ltd. So far, through their generosity and support, we have been able to fit 6 houses with solar panels.
Lisa Mills and her daughter, Mya, have been working with the family they sponsor. Ruth has opened a shop selling tea and curry spices. With the Mills’ support, Ruth has been able to stock the shop with a much wider range of goods, and she has also had some advice on the pricing of products to ensure that she can make a living from her exciting new enterprise and provide for her family.
These are just 2 examples of the wonderful practical support provided by our team of volunteers and supporters, both in the UK and Uganda
