There have not been any more births at Shanti Uganda, but I am hopeful there will be before I leave on Friday. I cannot believe my time here is almost over. I have learned so much and enjoyed every aspect of it. Although we haven't had any births I have been able to develop and implement a Midwife and Doula Resource Binder, made a poster of the Mission since there was not one posted, taught some of the midwives about labor and birth positions, rearranged some things. These may sound simple, but the process is not easy. Access to basic items that you and I take for granted are not easily accessible here, such things as tape, markers, and printing. Everything takes a little (sometimes a lot) longer in this wonderful country of Uganda.
I thought I would share some sights of Luwero, Uganda and Kasana Town:
These three girls stop at Shanti Uganda everyday on their way home from school and call for me to come out and take their picture. Of course I do, and then we laugh and smile and we take pictures and I show them to them on the camera or on my computer.
Tires provide hours of entertainment for neighborhood children.
In gratitude and appreciation from Uganda!
