Three times a month our clinic staff go into a neighboring village to weigh, immunize and give vitamins to babies, and also vitamins to all the children that come. It's somehow still surprising how often you see such young children carrying and caring for babies! It was great to see that they were being cared for too.
Our traveling clinic is a huge blessing to the families in the 3 villages that we rotate going to, since it would take them hours to walk into Kibaale. We love seeing how involved in this program the clinic staff is. They are always so happy to go out and so helpful to the overwhelming amount of people, and this is all after a full day’s work!! We love our staff!!

The above buzzwords (buzzphrases?) are an important part of NGO/charity lingo and the ideas and theories they describe are constantly being applied here as Kibaale Community Centre strives to make an impact in our community.
Vincent helping people fill out their seed bank account applications
Over the last few weeks, in addition to giving out maize flour and beans to those in our community that don’t have enough food to eat (which has been done to sustain them until they can harvest in about 3 months) we have loaned out beans, cassava stems and maize seeds to those who applied to be a part of our seed bank program. We are all very excited and interested to see if our seed bank will be successful. Check back in a few months to get a full report!
