Dear Linda,

How are you? I'm Silver from Ngamba Island chimpanzee Sanctuary. Thank you for all the work you did for the people of Myende. I know they will never forget "Maama Linda".
We identified one community member who is going to make a brief quotation for the health centre and we shall send it soon once done.

I have briefly written about Myende community, and the need for a health centre.
Myende community is located on Koome Main Island on Lake Victoria south west from Entebbe and East from Ngamba Island. It is one of the closest communities to Ngamba Island chimpanzee sanctuary. Wooden structures, grass thatched houses welcome you as you approach the landing site. Fishing is the main activity, but trading, small hotels, bars as well as animal rearing on small scale are done.

Myende landing site has a population of 300 to 400 people. The nearest health centre is 12km at Koome sub county head quarters. It takes a lot of funds and hardship to travel to this health centre, therefore need for a health centre is very significant at this landing site. Luck of funds to travel to the health centre has left many children, elderly, and women suffering quietly. Having a health centre at Myende community would serve more people because itís a central location. This means that Kiimi community which is over 4000 people, and Kisigala about 200people will all benefit from this health centre.

Ngamba Island chimpanzee sanctuary has closely, worked with local communities and over the years a solid working relationship has developed. Volunteers in the health services through CSWCT have lent a hand to this community, in areas of HIV /AIDS, dental services, Hygiene and sanitation .The love of the chimpanzees that the volunteers have ,has offered an opportunity to the neighbouring communities too.
Itís through such initiatives that wildlife conservation becomes more meaningful to communities that live close to them.
Thank you Linda and hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,
Silver
