Through a family friend, Rick Mills, this year we have contributed to Mpora Family Program in village called Kicwamba near the Kihondo Trading Centre (very basic shops) west of Fort Portal, in Uganda. www.gandahomestay.com

We bought a number of solar panels, chargers and D-lights (solar lights) and mattresses and furniture for the village community and orphanage. The lights are a particularly welcome asset to all the villagers including students for there is no electricity in these rural areas. There’s an interesting podcast made by the BBC about the D-Light at this link. www.bbc.co.uk/ahistoryoftheworld/objects/lvsof-uPTpeh-VRmmywHIw.
