With so many friend-of-a-friend disaster stories of African construction, we thought we could be in for a frustratingly futile effort, trying to get our building up, which will be used as a clinic and development hub for Maranatha Health. But alas, Uganda has surprised us once again, and left our patronising stereotypes of this place standing silently on the sidelines. Look at our amazing progress, brought to you by our building contractor who seemingly never sleeps!!

From the beginning.... our site.

Our hyperactive building contractor Alex - who we can never keep up with!

Digging, and me 'supervising'...

The slab - isn't our land beautiful?

We are almost at lock up stage now – the past few weeks they have put on the roofing and installed the doors and windows. Having to bargain for every bit of construction material that has ended  up on our site has meant we (especially Michael) has more insight into the construction than either of us thought possible.

Almost at roof level...


Look how far we’ve come now!

Starting to look like a clinic ward!

Now, we just have electricity, plastering, flooring and finishings to do! We’re almost there!!
