September 2018: ,

This incredible team of nurses and health educators returned to Jinja, Uganda. Alongside the field partners, they continued their work with community leaders, conducted women's health classes, and worked in local schools to bring about transformation through the power of knowledge, specifically on the topics of violence and self-esteem.

Team Testimonials:

"This trip has made me deeply reflect on my life, lifestyle and judgements."
"I am now aware of how wasteful we are in Canada—I have realized that I can live with less food and stuff!"
"I feel more compassionate towards those less fortunate and hope to carry this home."
"I heard so clearly Christ saying, 'I am working in the lives of all these people—you just need to bring your love and caring.'"
