Newsletter No. 2, April 2022

Dear Friends,
The worldwide Covid-19 epidemic has forced us to make changes at Tiko and amongst other things to look into the effects of the loss of income from the lodge and restaurant. With Lydia, a livestock officer in Katete, and Christine, a long-time hard-working member of Tiko, I went to Uganda for a weeklong course given by Dr. Emma Naluyima to learn how we can make the best possible use of the land and demonstrate the methods used to others…

Newsletter No. 7, December 2021

Dear Friends,
With covid omicron on the march it seems we are all in trouble again, but please note that at Tiko we are looking forward to a New Year that will be very hard, but will take Tiko towards sustainability, even though the rains are only just arriving now, three months late! We must thank you for having brought us this far, with almost two years of no income from the lodge and none of my fund-raising trips. For us, God is Great, and we hope that you, who have a heart for the poor, will have a feeling of contentment, however much covid now hits you.

Newsletter No. 5, September/October 2021

Dear Friends,
It seems so long since I saw any of you, but that is what COVID has meant to us. We have grown used to the strangely quiet restaurant and lodge, which is coupled to a loss of income that Tiko can ill afford. Like so many countries, we are also experiencing the effects of global warming, even if less dramatically than in some places, The rains were heavier than usual in the hot season which even helped some crops, but if the temperature in the hot season was high the cold season has been colder than usual. We shivered through this year’s AGM in the verandah with the cold air blowing freely through…
