Around here, you might here the phrase kulikayo (welcome back) several times on any given day. Welcome back home; welcome back to the office; welcome back to primary, welcome back to the classroom. No matter how near or far one has traveled, kulikayo is always an appropriate greeting upon one’s return.
Friday, May 30th the New Hope Uganda family welcomed Aunt Ketty Okoth back to Kasana after her one-and-a-half months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment in Kenya. That morning she and one of our nurses, Kimberly White, flew from Nairobi to Entebbe – Aunt Ketty’s first adventure on an airplane. By the time they arrived at Kasana, her family and friends from all over the site had gathered to give her a warm welcome including many children from the primary school where she and her husband are both teachers.
Thank you members of the NHU family near and far for making this possible! Thank you everyone who supported her family, who kept her company in Kenya, who prayed, who gave, and did so much more. Her doctors are very impressed with her continued good health throughout the treatment and minimal side effects.
The next steps are still being decided with her doctors and we will keep you informed. For now, please join us in praising God our Healer and Provider!
Kulikayo, Aunt Ketty!!
