Introduction Lorna went to bukana to teach on Causes , dangers of early pregnancy and how can parents help their teenage mothers. The committee leaders mentioned to Lorna previously that some of their children during this lockdown got pregnant and were wondering how to help their children. Overview Lorna‚Äôs intention in this village on this day was to sensitise the community members on Causes and dangers of early pregnancy and together with the parents find solutions to the already teenage mothers on how their parents can be supportive to their children. Unfortunately this did not happen as half way the journey, the chairman called Lorna and informed her that someone had passed on and being a Muslim they were going to burry the very same day and so the meeting was not going to be possible. Because Lorna was already half way the journey and disappointed but because there was no way out, she decided to go through with her journey anyway. When Lorna arrived the village, she decided to move into a few homes and just engage with those at their homes and also take this opportunity to mobilise for the next visit. While doing the home to home visits , Lorna also found in some homes they were lacking in their sanitation and hygiene and she kept reminding them on the importance of good hygiene practices. She reminded them the facilities that a home should have and their importance. Conclusion It was quite unfortunate what happened but together with the chairman they postponed the meeting to a later date next week.
