Wednesday morning, Simon and me (+ Catherine) left together with Bernard and Joke to Entebbe. Bernard and Joke have been with us for four weeks and they were a big blessing to us. They have been a great encouragement to us, Simon and me, but also to the staff and the volunteers. It is always difficult to say goodbye and I realise how often we have to do that. It makes me sad at times but we know that Bernard and Joke will come back! We had a nice meal in Entebbe, before we brought them to the airport. We were overlooking Lake Victoria and saw airplanes come and go.
On the way back, Simon and I bought a new laundry machine in Kampala. The old one broke down four weeks ago, we have tried to let it repaired, but in vain. With all the diapers and clothes from 24 children, we needed a machine. We found one and brought it with us at the back of the car.
In 2009 we opened the first floor, but it got too crowded and in agreement with the Figurant, we started to build the second floor. They have more then 1700 patients now. We had hoped that Bernard could open the clinic and hand it over to the Hospital, but it is not finished in time. They are painting now, it will be a very nice clinic.
On the left picture you see the corridor and at the end of the corridor there will be the laboratory, exclusive for HIV testing and other tests for the HIV patients. There will be a big room for groups activities and research. We hope to finish soon and the whole clinic can be used.
