All good things come to the end

Last week I came back home. My project finished at the end of November so there was no reason for staying any longer. It seems to me very strange that the PULSE experience is finished, after one year. These days, last December I was extremely excited because I was about to apply but I was […]

All apologies 

I’m not a politically correct person,never been. I always say what I think,most of the time in a very straight and sharp way. People don’t like this, most of the time they just focus on the cover of the book and don’t read it. Too bad,people like that will never improve themselves. Instead, they will […]

It’s just another day for you in Paradise

Africa is not only people in need but also animals in need! Beautiful creaturs live here and they are in danger for stupid belief (rhyno’s horn can cure cancer-come on,it’s just cheratine,nobody would cure cancer eating his neals!), for their valuable tusks or fur. Everybody must say stop to that and come here and enjoy […]

Heal the world

These pictures come from wendsday’s delivery in few HEalth Centers in Isingiro district. The project I am working in,among many other aspects, is about giving the drugs that the governmet doesn’t supply or supplies in a not sufficient quantity. The health system in Uganda is,basically, a pyramid,at the bottom the HC1,2,3 and 4. HC1 are […]

Oh baby,baby it’s a wild world

Yes,it really is! Now that I am here and I started living the real Uganda I can say that is a wild world! It’s hard but I am getting used to it. I like my project very much,dealing with the supply chain gives me the chance to have a view of how things work at […]

Crazy Mbarara

Finally,I am in Mbarara. This city is crazy!! But it’s full of joy and life,just like Ugandan people. I already love them,so gentle and polite,always smiling despite the hard life and the less that they have. I have to learn a lot from them…this PULSE program will turn out to be a help more for me rather […]
