In August 2016 Kokako was approached by Dr Jackie Smalldridge, a New Zealand Gynaecologist who volunteers in Uganda. There she performs life-changing surgeries with a skilful group of medical professionals supported by Medical Aid Abroad. About 20 minutes down the road from the hospital in Kagando, where Jackie and her colleagues are based on their trips, is the Bukonzo Joint Coffee Cooperative. On her last trip Jackie brought back 7kg’s of their coffee and asked if we’d like to try it. We did and we liked it.
