Ugandan sponsors see plans progress

A representative of a Manx Registered charity will be travelling to Uganda at the end of the month to oversee the building of 16 new classrooms at a local school.

The money for the project has been raised by Childcare Kitgum Servants and thousands of children in war torn north of the country are set to benefit.

The youngsters have all been affected by the 20 year Lord's Resistance Army rebel war.

Pat Wiles says people in the area have been unable to leave their camps and lead an ordinary life (audio file attached):
