Application for Social Services in Uganda [DUE: Mar 27]

After years of war, Uganda is desperate for support to rebuild its community and healthcare systems. In 2011, S.H. Ho College students made their first visit to Uganda through Watoto, which is an organization to rescue and support the overwhelming number of orphaned children and vulnerable women in the country.


This summer, the College will form a service team to visit Uganda again.

Details about the trip will be presented in the night talk at the Theatre, 1/F, Chan Chun Ha Hall at 7:45 p.m. on Mar 23 (Thur).
