Dear people,

How are things over there in Europe? Here it is dry season and very hot. Fortunately, we now have our own well , so no more water shortage.
The children have a short holiday and so are cosily all at home in the Home. Everyone helps to keep everything running smoothly. Friends and visitors also make it very cosy. They came together with our kids to organise fun activities.
For instance, all the rooms were refreshed with a new coat of paint. New recipes were prepared in the cooking pots.
Running competitions and games without borders, where our Foodstep kids always returned home with the victory. The vegetables from our garden are growing like cabbage. We now also have a chicken garden, patiently waiting for the first eggs. A new picking of mushrooms is also on the agenda. Our restaurant has already had many people enjoying our own harvest, cooked by the children.

In our bungalow, we can finally start painting. Hopefully you will be able to stay soon.

We were also able to welcome some new children to Foodstep. Lovely to see these little wounded birds growing up in a warm nest.

But you didn't sit still for Foodstep either!
Friends went to promote Foodstep at party markets, both in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Many sewing projects were sold, made by our Joel. New interns are already booked. And for the first time we were able to make a good video call with Basisschool de Akker in NL, who raised a nice amount for Foodstep by selling plants.
Supper thanks for that!
On top, may I certainly not forget to mention that on 8 July 2023, our deliciously familiar Bbq will continue! Don't forget to sign up! Everyone welcome. And thanks in advance!!!

Among all this good news, we also had some bad news. Our best friend, Jan Van Droogenbroeck, (pizzeria Goretties) passed away unexpectedly.
He had a funeral service in Belgium and his ashes were scattered in Lake Victoria here in Uganda. It was a dignified farewell. He is greatly missed!

We would like to thank you all for your support, prayers and love for Foodstep Uganda. We promise that all the kids will have a happy, hopeful future!
God's Blessing
