Shamim stopped by to color, but found looking at pictures of Kelly more exciting.

...
We have been advised by the Poultry Project's founder and our lovely sister, Kelly Flamos, to keep our expectations to a reasonable level. So, after a long a conversation, Emily and I have decided that if we accomplish nothing else during our stay, we would like to, at the very least, save the planet. In furtherance of that humble goal, Emily has come out of the gates firing on all cylinders. She is applying a machine-like methodology to her packing. Each of her bags is exactly fifty pounds, perfectly square, and consists of individually numbered one-gallon baggies filled with clothes, toiletries, and gifts. I cannot be sure why the bags are numbered, but like an Enron shareholder I will blindly trust the legitimacy of such a complicated system. Emily and I are very excited for our trip. We are both very thankful for the contributions that have made it possible. Most importantly, we would like to thank Kelly and Colin for paving the way and making everything so easy.
...
This project began with a collaboration of minds (Julian Harris, MD, Kelly Flamos, Robert Oluka, Charity Abude, Margaret Muzaki, Sarah Khanakwa, and several other TASO Mbale staff) and a generous contribution from John and Dobbie Luppino of Philadelphia.
...
Their donation motivated Julian, Kelly and the TASO Mbale team to move forward with their dream.
...
After the Luppinos offered their support, other family and friends of Kelly and Julian donated their hard-earned dollars to keep The Poultry Project going.
...
Colin and Kelly admire the majestic Sipi Falls on the foothills of Mount Elgon. Monday brought tears. We began the day at TASO where we each gave short goodbye speeches at the staff meeting. This time, I didn't buckle and weep uncontrollably. I heard one of the counselors tell Colin, "Don't let Kelly cry.
...
With help from our families in the US, Kelly built the boys a home; the boys built a chicken coop for themselves for the poultry project; a woman from the US (we can't find out her name) hired a maid for the family to look after James and cook and clean for them; the executive director of TASO Uganda donated clothes; Martha and Kelly set up a bank account for the family; and now the boys can sleep easier because they also have beds, thanks to the caring and generous people in the USA.

Kelly, Miriam from the CURE Hospital, John and his wife Gertrude and I piled into a mini-van taxi that John found for hire.
...
A short, pudgy and cute young boy appeared from around one of the bends in the path, and I heard Kelly shout his name in her excited voice. "Wycliffe! He cautiously walked toward us with his grandmother, Alice, behind him. Wycliffe is the young boy that Kelly and John met last year, when he was dying from malnourishment and anemia.
...
Kelly rolled out a soccer ball and the more than 50 children in attendance went nuts.
...
Kelly gave him some gifts, including a harmonica, and he received them with grace and appreciation. wick introduced.jpg Wycliffe is introduced at the meeting as a potential PRID beneficiary and a dear friend of the visitors (Kelly, Colin, and Miriam).
...
Kelly and I hope to provide some assistance to PRID, which includes the land purchase of an acre; quality top soil; bicycles and additional coffee plants.
...
Our day started at 8:30 a.m. John Busolo woke us at the CURE Hospital guest house. (Kelly had actually been awake for more than an hour)
...
Kelly and I walked through downtown Mbale (one mile) with John, Mzee Dasan and Mzee Boaz.
...
10:05: John and Kelly approach a banker, who gives a list - as long as the bank lines - of requirements to open a bank account.
...
Kelly and I suspected conspiracy.
...
10:20: I share my excitement about "King James" and the Cavaliers with an unequally amused Kelly.
...
Meanwhile Kelly and I decided to make our way to TASO to see what is happening. 12:15 p.m.: When we found an empty TASO (because everyone was at community outreach), we decided we would go our separate ways; I would go and continue working on a column (and reading Cavs columns) and she would pick up some items for PRID and some of the children at TASO. coffees nuralis.jpg Colin takes a sip of the best Ugandan coffee ever! 1:30: Kelly and I were reunited at Nurali's, a local restaurant and cafe.
...
No worries, Kelly had her camera. 5:45: John, Kelly and I grabbed the completed documents and we ran to the bank before Ismail left.
...
Kelly enjoys Sarah, while Grace looks lovingly at her beautiful neice.
...
Sarah, feeling a bit nervous, relieves herself on Kelly as they share a sweet moment together.

Kelly has generously allowed me to write a solo blog entry (she's actually sleeping, so this may be edited tomorrow). Here goes: When we returned from our sightseeing in the city of Entebbe, I was not feeling well. In my mind, I was suffering from ebola, malaria and a poisonous bug-bite - all at the same time. Nearly the entire medical staff of CURE Children's Hospital has assured me that what ails me is a simple case of sun poisoning, and expect a full recovery within days. Nambozo, as Kelly has been affectionately named, has been working steadily with TASO; I, on the other hand have been steadliy active with a toilet and a book.
...
As Kelly mentioned, not only is Maimuna suffering from HIV/AIDS, but she has a severe case of herpes on her leg, which has immobilized her.
...
As Kelly said, the flight here was a drag - not a fantastic way to start the journey. But this is an amazing place and I am tickled to be here, luggage or not. Fortunately, I have a few shirts to wear - one says "STOW," and another says "France: Losers of Both World Wars." At this moment, Kelly informed me that its time to go - we are going to TASO to see the newly constructed Children's Clinic, and meet with the counselors about the poultry project.

Prior to her appointment, Flamos worked with an HIV prevention program in Uganda, which serves such children as Shamin, an HIV-positive girl orphaned by AIDS. PHOTO COURTESY OF KELLY FLAMOS

...
Flamos, 26, recently became the City Health Department's new AIDS coordinator - by way of Uganda.
"It's my dream job," she said.
She's responsible for overseeing the Health Department's AIDS education and testing programs, as well as grants issued to local agencies.
AIDS remains a serious threat because of what she calls people's "risk perceptions," she said.
"The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (and Prevention) estimates that there are 300,000 people infected with AIDS who don't know it," she said."One thousand of those people could be in Stark County.It may be worse in Uganda, but I think it's a problem, and everybody should be aware of it."
A 1998 graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Flamos said she became interested in Africa as an international affairs student at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. In 2001, she took part in a study program in Madagascar, where fellow Cantonian Joshua Poole was serving in the Peace Corps.
Flamos said that AIDS, which has infected 24.5 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, is interconnected with other social problems, such as poverty.
"Why do people become prostitutes?"she said."There's a tendency for societies to be silent on sex issues, which fuels the problem."
While working on a master's degree in social work at Case Western Reserve University, Flamos did a field placement with the AIDS Task Force of Greater Cleveland.While doing research papers on AIDS, she learned that Uganda was home to some model AIDS support programs.A Ugandan who spoke at Case in 2006 inspired Flamos to visit the country to learn firsthand about its AIDS-prevention efforts.She raised $4,000 for her travel expenses to Mbale, Uganda, where she joined TASO, The Aids Support Organization.
While there, Flamos also co-founded a poultry-breeding program to help Ugandan families become self-sufficient.
During a five-week visit to Uganda this spring with boyfriend, journalist Colin McEwen, Flamos met a doctor from Congo who urged her to return to Canton to help foster AIDS education and prevention in her own hometown.
