Ubuntu Means I am Because WE Are


These days many friends ask me when I am going back to Africa. I am currently undecided about dangerous travel to Uganda where a massacre recently killed many schoolchildren near our clinics. I tell everyone, I visit our 30 plus Uganda projects every day (by phone or email) I say: “We are “Ubuntu” connected, meaning: “I am because we are”, which is the translation. I guess I have fallen in love helping improve life for our friends. Many now help me hug, like my embrace for my 10 year friend, Mother Teopista. Feeling blessed to serve.
