Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay in updates but we had another busy weekend just like the last!
On saturday we went back to the albino orphanage and cleaned the dorms for them. Armed with scrun brushes, brooms, mops, bukets, and soap we bargained for in the marlet, we scrubbed the floors and walls of the 4 dorms. They don't get cleaned very often so we could only do so much but at least they are disinfected now. We also donated a few soccer balls to both them and the deaf and dumb school in Mugueza (provided by Mr. Raza and Izaas). We even got a chance to play soccer with the kids and as a soccer player back at home, I loved being able to kick a ball around again! We were very surprised how good all the kids were.
Yesterday, we saw this beautiful waterfall before going to the Ntoma baby orphanage. Took some great pics and even ventured across the current, scaled some rocks, and ended up close enough to the falls to reach out and feel the water. Easily one of the coolest things I have ever done and I think everyone feels the same! As before, we enjoyed our time at the baby orphanage and even got to help out with lunch and bath time. All of the babies sit in a circle around a big plate of rice and hand feed themselves- very interesting to learn about that.
All of us can not believe we only have 9 days left in Bukoba- we are all going to miss our "African family" here when we leave next week. All for now!
