With the orphanage building almost complete we are delighted to report that His Grace Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, Archbishop of Kampala will officially open the new orphanage on Monday 18th February.

Adrian together with his family including Rachel and their four children are travelling to Kampala to attend the opening ceremony. Liz and Ray Atkins who started the project will also be travelling to Uganda to meet the children and attend the opening.

We are all very excited and are looking forward to meeting His Grace during the opening ceremony.
