I have seen, first hand, the Gulu Project (aka the Burn Village) and I was in awe. Three huts exist which were very clean, they had LED lights on the ceiling and well made concrete floors. Mosquito nets hung from the ceiling and were large enough to cover a big sleeping area. The latrines were being dug out that very day, a private "bathroom" was completed with sides for privacy, a well manicured garden sat nearby. A van pulled up with a cook who delivered her fresh, hot meals for the three families who would stay that night. I was moved by the teamwork I saw, with the adults pitching in all around and with such visible gratefulness.
This village is an outstanding work in progress. I was witness to the direct, grassroots efforts and volunteerism in making this much needed village come to fruition. Funds have gone directly to paying for supplies, feeding the burn victims and there families, providing wound care supplies, transportation to and from the village and hospital, planting a garden. No fluff. No extras.

The 2 individuals that started this are amazing. I have worked with them on other missions and am excited to see them branching out and starting this. I'd be happy to volunteer with them on their new endeavor!
