Yet again on this visit we have been confronted with the poverty and huge needs of the Acholi people. And yet also encouraged by their warm welcome, joy and continued friendships. Despite their challenges they push forward in life facing challenge after challenge with such patience, resilience and a strong faith and reliance on God. For many it is people and relationships which mean the most in life. Material possessions are few and struggles are many. I often hear the words, “Mama it is so hard”. And the requests for help can be overwhelming at times.
Amidst all this our committed medical team at Yotkom continue to deliver compassionate wholistic health care. We are proud of the work they do each day.
