................Christmas Items!

Jan 14th 10:54 am
A box of clothes from a generous donor arrived at Home today.
The box contained 10 pairs of boys shorts, 4 girls shirts, and 2 packages of underwear & pencils. If you would like to mail a box of gifts to the kids post a comment here with your email address and we'll be sure to get back to you ASAP!
We're still waiting for a few other packages to arrive.
I'm sure the kids were happy and surprised to get their new items!!!
When they receive their camera they will post photos of the kids with the items!

UPDATE Jan 11, 12:03pm
As of today only 4 more kids need sponsors! Thanks to all who have given! Food is still a problem so any amount donated helps a lot! View the video of the kids at the very bottom of the Blog!

Update Jan 6, 12:53pm
The kids are currently in need of school fees. Their new school year starts 3 weeks from now. School fees are only $22 A YEAR! That $22 includes lunch everyday and tuition. Currently 6 more kids need their school fees to be paid. 13 have already been paid for! Click the yellow DONATE Button on the right hand side
of the blog! Did you know that most kids in Africa may only eat 1 meal a day. That's their school lunch. Some kids can't even afford a few dollars for their tuition so they share with their friends. Sometimes 4 or 5 kids eat out of 1 bowl.
That's all they will get for the day. If you could even spare $1 or $5 it would be great. Thanks from the kids!

Dec 15, 1:45pm Help the Children have a holiday meal.
They would love to have chicken for Christmas. It is a Ugandan tradition for everyone to have some type of meat during the holidays. That is the only time they can afford it. If the kids don't get any funds for meat they will have to stay inside all day during the holiday because the director does not want them to feel sad if they see neighbors having a nice meal. Any amount you can donate will really help! They currently may only have tea to drink and no food at the orphanage.
Can you imagine a Holiday with no food?

Here's is the items bought with the "Christmas Fund" Money!
Several shirts and pairs of sock and underwear. Candy , Small toys, pencils, pens, batteries and a camera. The shipping was $54.
The other items in total were around $75.
That is what your Money was used for! We Thank You All for your Donations!!!
You can still donate. Any money raised will be used for food and school fees for the kids! Once they get the box with their camera we should have more photos to post of
the kids with their gifts!!!

WE NEED AN EMERGENCY FUND!

April 2, 2017 4:33 pm

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.

Very Needy Village help for $15 a month!

9:53 am This area is called Kiwolera

a small village in Kamuli , Uganda where we serve 6 or 7 families and nearly 30 kids live there.
Only about 5 have a sponsor at this time.
Most homes have a dirt floor and many kids were sleeping on straw mats or tiny pieces of old foam as you see below. That's their tiny bed. LETS GET A FEW MORE SPONSORED SINCE
School begins this week and there is a drought and high food prices. $15 a month helps 1 student stay in school. These families are all simple farmers raising greens or sweet potatoes.
The harvests are small because of the intense daily heat and nearly 6 weeks with no rain .

The kids Need Food. Help during drought!

4-23-17  8:08 pm  Drought killed most of the harvest all over Uganda during Dec, Jan
and rain has just begun. So this means food costs have sky rocketed and many  needy families are living on very little to survive.  Most are farmers with no options when their crops die.

We are asking for $600 to serve our most needy families with food
and other supplies. Thanks to anyone who can give to relieve the affects of drought and famine! Give on the link above!
