..................Help Mary and Others like her!!!

Aug 30, 3:23pm

This is Mary with her Grandfather Ojuuk. Her story is below!

There are 19 kids who need a uniform.
Here are some of their names and ages.
If you want to give them a uniform
Boys uniforms are $12 each, girls are $10.

If you pay for a uniform for 1 of these kids listed below then
you can also be their pen pal. They are the only kids
without a pen pal. I have photos of these kids also and a group
photo several posts back.
Ronald age 13, Mary age 9
Tonny age 10, Maria age 11

Here is Mary's story if any of you would like to help her.
You could also provide her with a mosquito for $3 or a mattress
for $10 along with the uniform. She would really like a new friend.

"The kids Home Uganda, has been a major inspiration, not
only to the orphans but to many others around the region.

Every day we appreciate all we have as we are constantly touched by stories
like this one about the old Mzee Ojjuk and the grand Daughter, Mary.

Mzee Ojuuk's story I had a very good life before the war started. I did not have
to worry about adult matters.

It was not long before the militia arrived and burnt down their house and
destroyed their livestock – their only means of survival.

Ojuuk's family fled to a compound was attacked, and Ojuuk was separated from his
family, only to learn that his two sons and daughters was murdered and his wife
Killed in the panic of fleeing in the morning Ojuuk found all his children and
the wife killed and leaving the young Mary crying far in bush he took her and
they joined the camp in Soroti, they moved from camp to another town and
finally they arrived in Masese lake side suburbs in Jinja town.
Ojuuk and the granddaughter was brought to them by the village
leader. Reaching there Ojuuk says I have finally found HOME for
my granddaughter I can now die and rest in peace.
Ojuuk is 77 years old and Mary 9 years old.


  1. God bless you for your work in Africa! That was a very moving story.

Help a precious starving baby boy.

Baby Abu is the 2nd child we've found in such bad condition. The only other starving child we found was baby Fatuma and she couldn't swallow well due to CP. Abu can walk but is weak and sucks his thumb constantly it see ms. He's lucky to be sponsored but his family situation goes beyond normal monthly sponsorship (mom is alone selling only sugar cane) and there is a sister who seems to be about 3.  Abu around 18 months to 2. They are lucky they had a mattress and net at home to share . The area of kamuli where they stay is Buwenge Mpia (the ghetto ) of kamuli. Where a few of our kids stay since rent is cheaper than in the town. its 10 mins or so walk from the tiny downtown. So we are wondering if any members would want to make a donation of any size to help with food, clothing or soap/ hygiene items and meds if needed. This will keep the family afloat for awhile until the mom can settle and figure out what else to do to earn a living. They only moved to t…

We've had so many illness within our org recently.
Kids getting sick , parents being injured on motorbikes, many people getting malaria from the
rainy season. One child with HIV is very sick right now and needs to be hospitalized but
we've always tried to use $100 of a child's school fee for that certain student. Funds can't be prioritized for other more urgent things If a family loses a house (and typical rent for our families per month is $10-$50) and we could help them for a month or 2 to get settled. Some families have emergency food needs
So if anyone would like to donate to this fund this would be great. The needs are so vast and can't be covered through monthly sponsorship (which is tuition and meals only)

If someone doesn't want to help a child monthly why not give an occasional gift of $10 or $20
Typical hospital costs range from $20-$100 this is far from what a poor Ugandan family can afford. With our help this can save a life.


Challenges our kids face


Our kids are doing ok in school but in everyday life they face so many obstacles.
Especially when kids are sick or have an injury . We have raised funds for a teen to get much needed surgery. So she can be able to walk without too much pain or issues with balance.

We have another child with CP who is doing well with leg braces, a wheelchair and therapy treatments. 

We have several kids with seizure disorders who are on meds and do pretty well
but have issues off and on.

Then our kids who have HIV, they try hard in school but some are sent home often when they feel really weak. Poor diet will always be an issue there. One sweet boy was turned away from his in-laws home and refused food there also. They told him "Go away" you have diseases, and there is no food for you we didn't budget for it.  This is all very common. Extended family , in-laws and especially step mothers tend to be very brutal towards kids who are not their own.
They have trouble providing for th…
