I have been in Kampala, Uganda for 1 week volunteering at an Orphanage and living with a host family.
First of all, the reason 'Support' is rated lower than the others is due to the start of our week. Although it was no bodies fault, some wires were crossed and we were still sat in a hotel in the middle of Kampala at lunch time on Monday (the day we were supposed to start) and we hadn't heard from RCDP or our host family. This was no bodies fault but I was disappointed in RCDP's reaction, or lack of one, as it is now Friday and we still haven't heard from them despite repetitive calling and emailing all of Monday morning.
However, this has been made up for by our host family who have been very supportive and welcoming, we have well and truly been part of the family this week and it will be very hard to leave.
We have been working from about 9:00-14:00 at the Orphanage each day, mainly working with infants from 0-3 months. It hasn't been all cuddles though, we have been doing a lot of general work to help the running of the Orphanage, which I have enjoyed because I feel as though I am actually being a help not a hindrance.
Once we have finished for the day we are free to do as we please, we've spent a lot of time in Kampala and our weekends at Jinja. Both amazing, busy places with great atmospheres.
Over all we have had a great week.
