Kumi Wheelsblog: Day 2

Kumi Wheelsblog: Day 2

The Wheels for the World team are hard at work in Kumi, Uganda from the 14th to 24th June. We'll be bringing you all their updates as often as we can...

Another busy afternoon! Finally finished by torchlight at 8pm.

A large truck full of 20 complex children arrived just before lunch, and we were working into the evening to see them all. We needed to take a Moto journey into town to get more foam as we are using so much of it for the complex cases.

The truck of recipients left almost when we did. Several of the young people today were sadly unwell. Lucie - one of our amazing therapists was worried about a young girl with possible chest infection. Being at a hospital we were able to send her to the on call Dr and send her seen and home with antibiotics. She went home with a life-changing wheelchair and a bit of health input.

Many various seating arrangements were constructed by the tech team - assisted by many volunteers from the ortho workshop again, many of whom came on their own time today.

We pray for safe journeying for those still traveling back. And look forward to a day of rest tomorrow. Thank you all as you support us in your prayers.
