It’s official–the eRangers are in Uganda. They arrived yesterday. We are still in the process of finalizing transport details, but they should tentatively be transported to Ibulanku Health Center this Friday or next Monday! This is an exciting day for Safe Mothers, Safe Babies—and we extend a hearty “thank you” for everyone who has helped us reach this point. More to follow soon (with pictures).
Safe Board Member Erin Glueckert is safely in Uganda! Amongst other things, she will be attending the first “Women’s Day Celebration” that SAFE and Buyanga Sub-County have organized in partnership. It will feature the official launch of KAMEDE (Kalalu Men’s Development), a community-wide debate about the relationship between the number of wives and children and economic viability/health of a family, performances by Kalalu Women’s Group, and a health fair including immunizations, antenatal care, malaria prevention education, and a mosquito net outreach. Check back at the end of next weeks for information on how many people attended and for pictures of the event.
