We have not slept for 36 hours.
I am feeling slightly overwhelmed but very happy to be back in Uganda.
We have had meetings all day, filmed and edited a video and uploaded it onto 21 different video platforms – woohoo, the internet connection worked. It is nearly 9pm and I am seeing double and having trouble writing so apologies for my brevity.
I am shocked at how bad the situation is and the global economic recession is really affecting the most vulmerable and the homes are all over capacity and turning babies away.
I feel incredibly lucky to have such an amazing team around me and relieved you can watch our video of Day 1:
Lara has organised all our logistics and is doing a brilliant job pre-empting all our needs, Saff did a great job today shooting and cutting our Day 1 video and hopefully from now on (with sleep) it will get easier.
Brian and I have spent all day meeting Barbara from Sanyu and Charles from Home Start International and it was amazing catching up with our team – Norah, Catherine and Dennis this evening but now it is time for sleep as we have another full on day tomorrow.
I’ll try to get tweeting more tomorrow.
