After the June congregational lunch, we were pleased to have Marsali Campbell speak to us about her work at Dwelling Places in Kampala, Uganda.
Dwelling Places aims to rescue, rehabilitate, reconcile and resettle street children, abandoned babies and high-risk families. Marsali’s talk was accompanied by a video and photographs, which gave us a much deeper insight into the situation there than we’d had before. It was especially interesting as we knew one of the congregation, Cho, would be flying to Kampala a few days later to volunteer at Dwelling Places for 4 weeks during the summer.
Marsali used to attend LCPC when she worked as a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital, so as well as informing us about her work, her visit was a chance for old friends to catch up, and new friends to be made!
