The Sound of the Earth

In 2015 the children in LANS had their feet treated for an infestation of jiggers. After treatment each child was given new clothes and shoes.

When Triona Connolly was talking to Kilkenny artist Andrew Small about UgaIrish Project, he offered to donate one of his paintings to raise funds for the charity. We gave him several photographs from Bbaale, and he chose to base his painting on one of 4-year old Lackboss Namirimu, walking off in her new clothes after treatment.

Recently Andrew presented the completed painting, titled “The Sound of the Earth” to UgaIrish, who are now raffling it to raise money for the fish farm project and for replacing the temporary LANS classrooms with permanent structures.
