We heard yesterday that serious flooding has inundated Kisiizi causing massive disruption... patients had to be moved from lower wards, the hydro-electricity generator was down, the main water supply from our capped spring interrupted, staff homes cut off etc.
The photo is of the central roundabout area in the in-patient zone near the Chapel. In our 30+ years involved in Kisiizi we have never seen this. We are not sure if it is a freak one-off event or if it is part of the changing weather patterns seen in many places.

Please pray for the Staff seeking to maintain clinical services in such trying circumstances.
We ourselves travel back to Uganda on 14th September, meanwhile we are trying to mobilise support as there will be some major costs to get everything sorted after such catastrophic floods.
