KIDA's van, that is used for so many outreach activities and serves as an ambulance as well, broke down irreparably last month. Even before it's final breakdown, trips to Fort Portal 24 km away were taking up to 2 hours, much too long for patients who needed specialty treatment at the Regional Hospital. The van had been serving KIDA well for eight years, transporting the drama group and KIDA staff over very rough roads. Friends of Ruwenzori is currently raising funds for a replacement van.
