Notes
Abraham met thirty seven Ikumbya community members and he was told that the chairperson's mother is sick in Iganga hospital. The members told the meeting that they checked the members who planted the trees and all two hundred Mvule trees are still alive. They discussed about their drafted construction and they have not come up with what they hope to do together as a community. Abraham advised them to meet when their chairperson comes back so that they get one thing they want to do as a community together, this is so important because it has to be included in their constitution. They suggested that they will be meeting on Friday to discuss about the issue and they are praying for the mother of their chairperson to be fine before Friday so that she can be in the meeting. They contributed thirty thousand shillings to send to their chairperson to help in treatment. They selected three members who are going to visit the sick mother of their chairperson. They told the meeting that their bore hole broke down but they called the district mechanic who came and opened the bore hole and they found one of the rod broken. They sent him and bought it and it was fixed. They are excited about their bore hole even they said since this bore hole started it is only this time that it stopped working.
