Uganda Lodge Newsletter March 2021

Hello to all our Friends and Supporters.
Apologies for the long gap since my last newsletter at the end of November. I have been out to Uganda twice this year and every day is busy, especially since our bursar/coordinator had to return to the UK due to ill health of her father. We wish him well and thank Jen for the great work she did during the year she was out in Uganda. I still have all the charity & volunteers admin to do regardless of where I am. We really need more help, and especially with promotion and looking for new volunteers as well as sponsors and donors.
