Where has the year gone. The last two weeks of school were certainly busy. After visiting each classroom to raise awareness about the effects of malaria in Uganda, the students turned their efforts to baking sweets and holding the bake sale. The students raised $355!
Then we got a call from Beth and Jim from Think Humanity and asked if we could help create vitamin packets for children at the Kwangwali Refugee Camp in Uganda. WIth multivitamins donated from Vitamin Angels in large containers, our classroom repacked them into smaller containers for a month's supply of supplements. This will be helpful for children who have low immune systems due to malnutrition. Once the immune system is stronger, they will hopefully be less susceptible to diseases like malaria, typhoid, and other illnesses. We created over 300 packets over two days.
