Witchdoctors

Wonderfull friends, I have terrible news! The last month there is a group of witchdoctors killing young woman and teenage girls. In our village Entebbe, 30 died. 10 of them in our street! In the beginning it was always in the evening hours, now even during day time!
They always kill the same way. They rape, kill, take organs out and impale the body on a wooden stick. Really unbelievable!!
Everybody is so scared! The police and army are patroling. Helicopters fly around, but still.....every day a woman dies.
The governement is taking this serious! Its every day on the news.
Our kids are not allowed to go outside. They need to walk in group. We have now 10 security guards, day and night. Girls need extra counseling. You can't trust anybody outside!
We don't want to scare our visitors or volunteers, but we take our responsibility to inform them. We can imagine they would cancel their visit to Uganda.
We continue to help the police and pray for peace. This witchcraft needs to stop, NOW!

Belgium tradition

Today we did a 'traditional Belgium drink".  When you build a house and you reach the highest point of the house, you give all the builders a bear!
Our girls wing at Kampiringisa looks amazing! I am soooo proud, thanks to my amazing Foodstep team and the European Union. Xn

A big heart

Today I went to the cardiologist. The pain was to much! 1/5th of my heart doesn't get enough blood. Thats why my heart is to big (i loved that!?) Its pushing on my lungs, that's why I have difficulties with breathing.
With lots of medicines and taking some days of to reeeeeeeest, I will feel better.
So from 21st of August up to 27th of August, I would like to go, together with my husband, to The Nile and do nothing! X thanks for your prayers xn
