A Health Worker Uses The Lunch Time To Stitch or Bandage A Bleeding Feet
The foot pilgrimage for Christians from Gulu Archdiocese has entered its sixth day of tedious walk of faith.       

They started the walk with just their Bibles, Rosary and faith in their hearts determined to arrive at the final resting place of the Uganda Martyrs at Namugongo, located about 332 Kilometers away from their homeland.  

   

Old women with cracked feet bears fresh bandage around the soles of their feet. Health workers are trying to prevent bleeding from them. The heat on the tarmac road is telling as irritating sounds of passing cars conspire with high voltage winds to drag them backward.        

Among the pilgrims is devout Anglican Church believer – Dr. Olara Otunnu, the former Uganda People’s Congress-UPC Party President and Alfred Oluba, the Layibi Division Chairperson.   

       

Uganda Radio Network caught up with the pilgrims at Rwengkunye, few Kilometers after Masindi Port on Gulu – Kampala Highway and brings you pictures from the pilgrimage.
