Atuhirwe Carol’s thank you note to Ugandans:
I greet you all in the name of the Almighty God.
I know each one of us has his or her own religion. Nevertheless this has not stopped us from coming together to join me in this cry for restoration of my life, but what unites us is that we all believe in one God.
You have all loved me as I am and showed me much love, everyone contributed what they could and am very thankful. GOD blessed us differently But that didn’t stop your beautiful hearts from supporting me, praying for me, fasting for me. Everyone contributed in his or her own way.
When I think of all those that have contributed without knowing me from Uganda and the diaspora. I cry not because am sick but because of all your goodness to me.
You have been a blessing to me and I will forever be thankful. If we can maintain this unity I believe God will bless this world even more. My dear friends we can do good deeds God in heaven being our guide.
I want to end by thanking my friends who I will not mention by name but those who started this campaign. I want to thank all those who made the campaign known. Through media and social media I love you I love you so much. Please thank you. Because it’s you that I have gained hope. With these few words I want ask you to continue praying for me. I look forward to saying hello laughing with you and eating with you. Father GOD bless me and hear my cry.
