Building and medical team brings hope to Uganda

Diocesan News

Added on 22/01/2013

Representatives from 6 different parishes in the Diocese of Down and Dromore are on the latest Hope Builders trip to Uganda.

Hope Builders

A group of forty–eight flew out of Dublin early in the early hours of Friday morning 18 January with parishioners from Kilkeel, Annalong, St Finnian’s, Ballywalter, Knocknamuckley and Aghalee among them. Some of the group are pictured below.

Hope Builders founder, David Charleton, is leading the group whose aim is to build classrooms and dormitories for the school at Nakasangola and some dwellings for a nearby orphanage. Among the team are a doctor and a nurse and they will hold clinics whilst the building is going on.

Despite a difficult journey, the group have arrived safely and are hard at work! Please remember them in your prayers.
