Budongo mourns Eriku Philipo

The BCFS family announces with sorrow the passing of the late Eriku Philipo on May 24, 2014.  His presence at camp will be missed greatly by staff, administration, and students alike.

Philipo, a former employee of Budongo Sawmills, lived on the premises of BCFS where he retained employment as a craftsman making pots, stoves, and other metal tools. He was often sitting outside of his home, offering a cheerful wave and greeting to all passers-by. May his soul be at peace.
