Maduddu is a small community north west of Mityana and the church there is very old. We think it may be been built in the 1920s or 30s. The community support the church and there are 17 lay readers in daughter churches and they are very appreciative of/for a water tank we gave them now 10 years ago. Our project manager, Fred, was able to deliver some maize flour to some of the lay readers and clergy. 10 kgs of maize flour doesn’t sound much, but it enabled these families to eat well for a week. We are hoping that they will soon harvest their crops.
In the last three months the clinic at Butoloogo has been opened and this will make such a difference to the community and the health of the people in the surrounding area. To get to a hospital from Butoloogo might take anything up to three hours, depending on the rain and the road. Now children and adults can be treated there and have a much greater chance of getting well quickly. The maize flour contributions there were received with great joy. It is one of the furthest parishes form Mityana town.
We want people to know that Whitchurch deanery is made up of small rural villages too who care about Mityana diocese and the rural people especially.
