The CACHA missions take all their medical supplies and equipment with them from Canada so each of the team members use their 2 check-in luggage allowance to take two large plastic bins loaded with medical and logistics supplies for the mission and carry their personal clothes etc in a carry on bag.
Here are a couple of us meeting at the Via Rail station Ottawa to catch the KLM bus to Montreal airport.

Arrived in Entebbe at 11pm after some long flights and although Jimmy and friends assured us it was very cool - I was already feeling the heat. we are now well rested and off to Kampala to get Phone cards, Ugandan shillings and our last coffee for 2 weeks - there will be instant coffee at the village but for many of my team mates their last real coffee is a big event!
