We had a very colourful and fun party at the school on December 18 – along with our 610 kids and a parent/guardian and sibling each, there were local community leaders etc, and the total number of people fed exceeded 1,400!

There were dances, drama, a rather slim-looking Santa, loads of presentations, speeches, gifts to the children, along with clothes and shoes… it lasted for hours.

Huge thanks to everyone who donated to help make the party such a success, we couldn’t have done it without your help. Families in the Namatala slum don’t really get the chance to celebrate Christmas in any way at all, and their faces said it all as they joined in the fun and food.
