Deworming in Karamoja

Last week I was up in Karamoja with some missionary friends. I've been wanting to do a de-worming campaign for a while now (here is the rational if any of you are interested in that kind of thing) and finally managed to do it. We had to hike out to Alakas as the road is completely spoiled and my teammates were troopers in the 100+ degree heat on what is not really an easy trail.

But we managed and were able to treat nearly 200 children. We also delivered two boxes of meds and testing kits to the VHT.

Later in the evening we reached two more villages and we also treated Lormoruchbae (where we were staying) so all together we treated more than 400 children and more than 100 pregnant women. It was a full two days but it was good to be back in Karamoja and good to have friends to work with.
