I was visiting a village high on a hill in Ethiopia,
I’ll always remember the local guide because he quizzed us
intently after each briefing!
.. I don’t remember much of what he said (oops) ..
Something about the cocoa plant .. :-)
I wandered off and saw this little boy lying on a slab of stone,
he looked soooo ill .. poor little thing, his name is Jemal.

This is Jeremiah.
He's one of the slum kids I met in Kampala, Uganda recently.
He's cute as a button ... does a mean rap dance too!
(See Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mns5XNTmIU&list=PL746D2csOLQDokHndayaKJnr_faLaQXof&index=6
The poor little thing is so young and has been living rough on the streets for some time now....
But .. Great news! He's one of the lucky ones and is the latest child to be rescued by African Hearts Community Organisation and placed into a transitional home!  How awesome is that?!

African Hearts School Girl
I met this lovely girl and many more on my recent trip to Uganda
where I spent time with the African Hearts Community Organisation.
African Hearts are based in Kampala and rescue street children
and orphans from the slums, get them into school, provide vocational training, try to get them back with their families or into new loving homes.
It was a most insightful and rewarding trip, our team went to give,
but I think it's fair to say we received as much in return.

Just hanging out at the equator …
this morning began with an early morning game drive >
Queen Elizabeth National Park, it was great fun to see two different prides of lions and much more!
Next were flamingoes on a crater lake, then a cruise
on the Kazinga Channel > an excellent day brimming
with animals and nature!
