We never knew Laura. Angela came into our lives on Sunday picked up from the road side by some of our friends. Her friend Laura was one of 4 passengers killed instantly when their bus was hit by a lorry on the way back to Kampala from seeing the gorillas in Bwindi. Both were medical students from UCH spending their electives at the mission hospital in Kisizi. These devastating accidents are everyday news here. Potholed roads, poorly serviced vehicles and dangerous driving contribute to a disproportionately high death toll on the roads.
We were glad to meet and get to know Angela and her mum Brida. They returned to the UK today. We hope Angela gets through the next few difficult months OK. Our thoughts are with Laura’s parents and friends.
