||News from Uganda
We have received your documents on the publicity for the concerts. We are indeed indebted to the Singularity choir for the annual fundraising for all these years. What a support to the RYDA activities.
Also St. Margaret Uniting Church and St. John Cowes congregations for always standing with us in this developmental work. Young people have been transformed and we are continuing doing this noble work. Your financial and material support has enabled us to do skills training and welfare for the needy children and young people.
In Uganda today fuel has now reached 6,000 shillings per litre. This has made increases on the essential goods hence making cost of living higher. To RYDA, food is becoming expensive. COVID cases have been sighted and recorded recently in the country. We are praying that we do not fall victim.
Next month, July, we are beginning the exams. The challenge is the examination test materials and electric power to facilitate the exam period.
|Our Ugandan ambassador to Germany Mr. Ssozi visited RYDA center and we discussed many issues and needs for the center. He promised to tell people in Germany about what RYDA does to skill Uganda young people. We need to pray and keep our fingers crossed to see that this becomes into reality.
I have been trying to get things done to make the girls bathroom usable again. It got damaged after a heavy raining season. Also we have a new nurse as now it's a requirement for the center.
Once again we extend our sincere gratitude to Singularity choir and Cowes and St. Margaret Uniting Church for supporting the two concerts fundraising for RYDA activities and programs.
Also to the two ministers we are thankful for allowing your church premises to host these concerts.
We salute you all.
