And here are the last photos of my trip to Uganda last week: we spent Friday and Saturday between the trip to Kampala, some hours in the city and then on the planes back home. These are shots from Thursday, last day spent in the fields in Ruhira with the locals.
As first activity of the day we went from house to house with local doctors and nurses to look after some kids with malaria symptoms (that luckily were not infected) and to look after some pregnant women to make them prepared for the big day. Until a couple of years ago most of women were used to give birth at home without the help of a nurse, while now most of Ruhira women have the chance to be followed by doctors during the birth and during the pregnancy.
We then were brought again to Nyakitunda school, where we visited the new buildings of the school, entirely created thanks to Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation, and where we attended a singing and dancing performance by the students: a real show.
The last place we visited was another Kabuyanda Health Centre, specialized in eye defects prevention, thanks to a direct support of Safilo and Tommy Hilfiger.
My stories about this unforgettable week are now over, but my support towards Millennium Promise is not finished.
The situation will not drastically change thanks to my posts, photos or words about Ruhira, but If only 1% of my followers decided to make a direct donation here now Millennium Promise would have collected thousands of euros for this project.
If only 1% of my readers would have shared Millennium Promise project, now thousands of other people could get to know this organization.
If only 1% of the brand which follow my blog decided to support Millennium Promise like Tommy Hilfiger did and still does, now Ruhira population would have some more help.
If only 1% of you could get some feelings looking at these posts and reading what I wrote, I could be even more excited about this experience.
Thanks to Tommy Hilfiger, Millennium Promise staff and to all the lovely people we met in these days for giving me the chance to understand that we can all do more, to make a difference together.
Ed ecco le ultime foto del mio viaggio in Uganda di settimana scorsa: le giornate di venerdi e sabato le abbiamo passate in parte in viaggio verso Kampala, in parte a Kampala ed in parte in aereo tornando a casa. Questi invece sono scatti di giovedi, ultimo giorno passato sul campo a Ruhira, insieme alla popolazione locale.
