Christmas time in Buyaya


When volunteers leave their placement areas, they are often asked by the locals "Please remember me. Please don't forget me."

The people of Buyaya - a small rural parish in Eastern Uganda - have not been forgotten by volunteers who have been placed there.

Thanks to numerous donations by former volunteers, Meaningful Volunteer ordered a Christmas party for Buyaya. The people from Buyaya were also given donations by several people and organizations who have never even been to Buyaya!

Many presents were handed out and much food consumed. A special thanks to Esther Nabukonde - our awesome district manager in Uganda - who helped organize this event.
