July 12, 2010

Washington, D.C., July 12, 2010 On behalf of Peace Corps, I would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the bombings in Kampala.

"All 120 Peace Corps volunteers serving in Uganda are safe and accounted for. Since 1964, 1,080 Americans have served as Peace Corps volunteers in Uganda. Peace Corps has a longstanding commitment to Uganda's development and has experienced excellent relationships with the people of Uganda throughout the years. Currently, Peace Corps/Uganda has an education project and a community health project. Additionally, Peace Corps Volunteers in Uganda are currently engaged in HIV/AIDS activities."
