Dorothy Kabonesa (53 years old) knows what to do when an emergency occurs in her community. She alerts her husband and they both move to save the situation at hand.
“If the situation is alarming and my husband is nearby, he joins me; if he is far, I go alone or call for support from fellow volunteers” says Dorothy.
A mother of 6 children, Dorothy has been married for the last 25 years. Her husband Johnson Rusamba – 54 years is a farmer. They both trained as first aiders and have been red cross Volunteers since 1998. The couple lives in Kavule village, Bundibugyo District in western Uganda.
