The church is very involved in the national campaign to wipe out measles. When children are not immunized it can take many many lives.
Just this Monday a new clinic was opened with free shots in Matero, a suburb just to the north.
Kristi and I didn't make it up there for the opening ceremony but hope to stop by sometime.
We are getting ready for nine new missionaries to fly in tomorrow and it means a lot of preparation so they are greeted and taken care of on their way to their first areas.
Here are all the facts for mothers. Pneumonia is the other big killer so those shots are free also.
As you can see it is a joint effort with some pretty big players.
Humanitarian projects are all that one Senior Missionary couple work on while they are here.
We hope to have time to go with them to some of their projects in the future.
