We are back!

Hello everyone!

Thank you SO much for helping to make our trip down to Ddegeya Village, Uganda a success! We couldn't have made it work without your kind donations and your constant love and support. We really appreciate everything you have done and want you to know that you are making a difference, one person at a time.

So much has happened over the past couple of is truly incredible. We covered a lot of ground while in Uganda during our November 2007 trip and accomplished many of the goals we had set out to attain. More importantly, however, we really connected with the people and showed them that they can depend on the Engeye Health Clinic! They can count on us! Check out this blurb below for more information. All my love! Misty


Happy New Year Engeye Friends!

Turn up the volume on your computer! Photo albums from the November journey with sound have been installed on our website (free of charge by our incredible website designers)!

What November journey? The one lead by Misty, when medical and engineering students and full-time public health workers planned and schemed for 6 months in the midst of their already insane lives, and brought solar electricity and malaria testing and treatment to Ddegeya Village! That's right, thanks to the preparation by Kenji and collaboration and hard work with our Ugandan friends, light bulbs were seen in our clinic for the first time ever, a novelty in the village.

Thought we were ready to surrender to indifference? You haven't seen anything yet! Susan, our burned young patient, has been preliminarily accepted to Shriners Hospital and we are in the process of finalizing surgery dates. Also, a team from Providence Hospital in Portland, OR, lead by Sallie and David, will journey to our clinic this March. Video documentaries are being made and plans in Uganda continue.

The wheels are in motion, and we are not going to allow people to silently die and suffer while we are alive and kicking! If you ever forget why we should work together with lands outside the U.S., please revisit Engeye's rationale.

Thank you for your continued support.
May we create some very large waves in 2008!

Team Engeye
