Maggie Fenwood in Kasese, Uganda

Posted on November 24, 2017
Welcome, Marguerite (Maggie) Fenwood,  our first ISWS stipend recipient!  She takes off for Kasese, Uganda on October 10. 2017.  Maggie will be conducting a training for healthcare personnel and a needs assessment for patients of Marjorie’s Fund, an American based NGO supporting Type 1 diabetes patients in Uganda and Rwanda. Maggie is focusing on the community of Kasese, Uganda, a low-resource area with high levels of anxiety and stress when life-saving insulin is often unavailable.

Soon, we’ll use this space to tell the stories of our volunteers and the projects they’ve embarked on.
