Under the Tree
Episode I: 20 Kilometers to Birth

 Bernard Mukisa has been lucky his whole life. There was always a helping hand when he needed it, and he’s finally found himself in a position to pay it forward. He and his family have built the Suubi Health Center for Budondo, Uganda and the surrounding villages; the first one locally for 26,000+ people. To provide the funds they need to support Suubi Health Center, they have started growing passion fruit, an agriculturally sustainable crop.
