Benebikira Sisters Celebrate Upgrades at Kabuga with A Partnership in Caring Society Volunteers

Today A Partnership in Caring Society volunteers Maria van Vonderen and Carolyn Rideout visited the home in Kabuga where the senior Benebikera Sisters live.
The Sisters appreciated the supplies ( Tylenol for arthritis, voltaren and bed soakers) that the volunteers delivered.
APICS partnered with the Wishing Wells Society and a water collection cistern has been added to the property.
The Sisters ( 28 Sisters and 4 workers) live in a very small home. The kitchen is outside and at the back of the property. They mostly cook with wood.
A new fence has been added to the property increasing the security of the Sisters.
The Sisters were very happy to celebrate with Carolyn and Maria today.


Security and Water Systems Added at Kabuga Facility

Thanks to A Partnership in Caring Society the sisters at Kabuga now have security because of the new fence built around their property. Two water collection cisterns were added and the house has been renovated. Last year when we visited the roof was leaking and water was entering the home. a new roof , ceilings and gutter system were installed.
The Sisters are very grateful and today we celebrated in song and prayer.

Fabrice Receives an Assessment

Fabrice as he attends his Ears, Nose , Throat assessment today.
When we first met Fabrice 3 years ago he was unable to walk. He is now 5 years old . With support from APICS he attended rehab and now runs along with his brothers and friends.
His language skills are improving.
He loves trucks and motorcycles. He attends school and receives individual teaching each afternoon.
He is a very social young boy. MAria from APICS has developed a close bond to this very special young boy.
He has an appointment with a paediatrician next week.


Update on Fabrice

Fabrice, age 5 seen here as he attends an Ears, Nose and Throat appointment accompanied by A Partnership in Caring volunteer Maria van Vonderen.
There was a German ENT group who assessed him today. They will continue to follow him. APICS has supported Fabrice since 2016.
Over the past year there have been improvements, FABRICE now attends school each day ( mornings) then individual teaching each afternoon. He is more social and engaging, he has made physical gains but remains far behind in weight gain. We hope his paediatric appointment next week can provide more insight into his challenges. He lives with his mother and 2 brothers. His mother is very poor, she works in the fields with her youngest son on her back.
