news from Soroti....

Via Email and also skype I have had several times contact with Amecet in Soroti. They have been busy there. At the moment there is an outbreak of mouth and feet disease among the cows in Soroti district. Simon and Elias have been busy with traveling to the villages to all our grandma's who have been given cows and bulls. They have been immunizing the animals and they gave deworming tablets. They also left spray bottles with medicins against ticks etc. It is hard for the Grandma's to get the medicins. They have been also giving seeds and cassava cuttings for them to plant. They brought some posho for each family, posho is a flour made of corn. There is a bit of shortage of food and the families were very thankfull.
I also got the news that Moses is gone to his family. Moses was found in a pighouse , you can read about him in the blog of 14th of March. A young lady came to ask about him, she wanted to adopt him. It was a bit strange, Simon contacted the police and the children protection unit, they arrested her. After two days she admitted that she was the mother. There have been a lot of talking and two days ago they travelled togeher with Moses, the police and the children protection and Simon to Mbale (1 hour form Soroti) and handed Moses back to his family. Simon has high hopes for him, there was an aunt who was very happy with him. The mother has to come every two weeks with Mose to report to the police station in Soroti.
