KIDA HOSTS KING OYO ON HIS 21ST BIRTHDAY

On April 17th, King Oyo, who became King of the Tooro Kingdom of Uganda when we was three years old, has come of age and decided to spend his 21st birthday touring KIDA hospital and having lunch with Rev. Ezra and Marojorie Musobozi and some KIDA staff at the Kitojo Tourist Home.  While he was there he planted a tree, handed over some tree seedlings donated by the National Forest Authority to people who will plant them.  He also gave the first dose of polio vaccine to two babies who were born on his birthday.  KIDA's vaccine program is scaling up and the extra publicity associated with the King's visit will certainly help parents to participate in the life-saving program.
