As a former airline pilot I have travelled the world and seen varying degrees of poverty and hardship in developing third world countries, the African continent has long been made up of countries who have seen famines, conflicts and many other problems.
Many of these countries have seen dictators come and go, leaving poverty and destruction in their wake.
Money and resources are being used for weapons and wealth for the elite minority of the populous, instead of being used for helping the vast majority of the ordinary people of the country.
Nelson Mandela was a shinning light and great example of what a countries leader should aspire to.
I have decided to do my bit and try to help in a small but pro active way, starting with Uganda, in particular a suburb called Bwaise in central Kampala, the capital of Uganda.
The area of Bwaise is a large urban slum where thousands of people live and try to survive and make a meagre living on a daily basis.
