Things are percolating!

Today I talked with the Foundation of Hospices of Sub-Saharan Africa, and got some good information in that arena, including some avenues to try to get Hospice Jinja morphine. They have been out of morphine in all of East Africa for several months, and the patients are only able to receive codeine for pain management. So we're working on that with several contacts, and finding out in the meantime how morphine can be shipped there as a controlled substance. Hopefully we will be corresponding with the Palliative Care Association of Uganda in Kampala, also.

I have also had a lot of conversation with a guy who is an engineer, who was introduced to Ten Eighteen and the primary school at the Our Lady of Lourdes Fall Festival this month. He is very interested in helping us out, and that has been a real God send - he is very knowledgeable about sustainability and alternative uses for things, so having someone come alongside and want to give so freely of his time and talent is awesome. If nothing else, it has certainly helped me to clarify in my non-engineering mind the scope of the project, and give me encouragement.

Next month, on the 13th is the Mistletoe Market at Wakefield High School. We'd love to have you come out and see all that's going on in Uganda!
