The national symbol of Uganda is the crested crane; gorgeous, friendly, gentle and peace-loving – just like the Ugandan people.  The eleven Ickenham church members, privileged to visit Uganda and witness the effects made by charity contributions from Ickenham, are now back home – and feeling their lives are changed.  They toured a beautiful and fertile country, inhabited by amazing people, the majority of whom live in poverty; over a third live on less than £1 a day.  Yet they are a welcoming and happy nation and take pride in their appearance.

Most Rukigan families live in small, one-or-two-roomed huts, constructed from whatever materials are to hand. They each have a small plot of land on which, mainly women, grow a variety of crops which are eaten or sold at one of the numerous roadside market stalls.  Although donations made by Ickenham charity has enabled a reliable source of drinking water to supply most of one small community, the majority of the people must make long journeys of up to ten kilometres on foot, carrying water cans filled from streams and natural ponds. This water might well be polluted, but what is their alternative?
