Intro to Uganda

We have been here in Kampala one week.  We have settled in to the house, learned to drive (on the left) to the office, worked with the MCC staff, and met a number of persons connected with various MCC projects.  We have visited two MCC partners – Hope Prison Foundation and Mengo Hospital.  “Partners” are organizations (usually local) with which MCC works here in Uganda. If a local organization is working on projects that  match MCC’s philosophy, we feel it is better to work through them rather than create another project.  Hope Prison Foundation provides educational and economic assistance to families of prisoners and Mengo Hospital has programs for the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS. More about this later.
