Every now and then some generous people do special things and do not look for anything in return. A lovely lady in Brisbane has helped us realise a long held dream. We have bought a farm to grow food for the kids at two schools we support in Masaka Uganda. A well has been dug and we have plentiful clean fresh water. We have had several good crops of maize which has reduced the food bills at the two schools we support.
