Adi Budd a physiotherapist from the Midlands, England has this to say about her recent visit as a voluntary worker with Spring of Hope:
Working with SoH for four months has been a challenging, exciting and rewarding experience. I have been able to share my skills and knowledge with the team through teaching sessions, village outreach and physio clinics. But more than that I have gained so much in return. I have even learnt to sit side saddle on a boda boda (scooter)! Uganda is a fantastic country to visit and I have made some lifelong friends. I would recommend anyone to go and find out for themselves.

Kristin Beil, one of our Occupational Therapists volunteers  from USA testisfies about her time with Spring of Hope; follow her testimony     

Katri, one of our physiotherapy volunteers from Finland, also has her own story to tell.
