Uganda 2023: Day 5 – Art Team Reaches Out and Volunteers Visit Orphanage
It’s a beautiful morning heading to the hospital. The hustle and bustle of early morning commuters and school children makes for a very active scene on the streets of Gulu.
We have a full schedule of surgeries today but our art team has a full day planned too.
Today the art team is visiting the pediatric ward. The little patients have the opportunity to make masks and beaded bracelets and necklaces.
Faith poses with one of the young artists, who is proud to show off his new necklace.
This little boy needs a little help with the bracelet he created.
Later that day, a small group of Medical Missions Foundation volunteers visited a local orphanage in Gulu, The St. Jude’s Children’s Home.
Bubbles are always a big hit with kids.
Our team briefly interrupts the classroom of children to pass out stuffed animals, donated from back home.
Chris makes a special connection with one of the little ones.
The children were so excited from our visit, they sang a beautiful song for us.
