Recent interfaith tour of Africa which we started last year with Ambassadors of Peace from Scotland under the UPF banner and with a partner charity from the USA "Eyes on Africa". This year we could visit Ethiopia,Zambia (my former mission country of 1975) and Uganda (my assigned nation). Together with Mr. Aftikhar Ahmed,our AFP here in Scotland we could distribute about $7,000 in donations, laptops, school materials, eyeglasses to not only our own Church projects in each country but also to our partner charities in the Moslem and Christian communities.In addition we distributed $1,000 on behalf of IRFF Sweden.

We hope this has greatly benefited these nations and we hope next year to extend the tour to include also Malawi, and Tanzania or Botswana.
All those who participated this year were really impressed with the development in Africa and are all enthusiastic to participate again next year. Our hope is to grow the team to 10 participants next year. Provisional dates are July 2-18, 2012. I will let everyone know the final schedule as soon as possible and the tour company we used last year is already working on it!

All the best,

Robert Williamson
Regional Leader
