................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!!!

Help a precious starving baby boy.

Aug 8, 17   6:48pm
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…
