Wed, 9.23 - Byumba Health Centre exterior

These paintings were all the exterior of the Health Center. Very powerful tools for educating and preventing so many common problems (malnutrion, HIV, family planning, malaria).

My favorite is the one below which shows the burden of a large family on a Ugandan man. See the sweat coming off his face? If you look closely you can see his wife, many children (one girl who has her period - meaning that he'll have to supply her with cloths, one baby with the runs - meaning sickness) and the food he will have to supply. The message is "a smaller family is a wealthier family" (or something along those lines).

That's Patrick explaining this painting of a family getting HIV testing.
