18 Kids and Counting, War Dance, Uganda fun

UPDATE!! Bunk beds are needed for the School Dorms. Two or three kids have to share 1 twin bed. About 10 triple bunk beds are needed. 2 have been provided so far.
Each triple bunk bed it $83! Some beds are broken so the kids really need more beds to sleep comfortably. Awhile ago they sleep on a wooden bed with no mattress at all!!

Be a sponsor to a very needy child for $35 per school term.
These kids have 2 terms of school left this year but they still have no sponsor.
They may have to leave school soon if no one helps them. $35 provides the kids with
3 months of school lunches.

Will you help one of thse kids today?

In Uganda
I saw kids who had holes in their socks, shoes, school uniforms and everyday clothes.
I saw kids who were couldn't even afford $5 for a school uniform.
Their school New Victory allows them to attend without a uniform but most Ugandan school don't. New Victory knows they don't have anything else to wear.
Some kids wore the same clothes everyday. Some were very skinny, dirty, or sick.
But most of all I saw kids who just wanted someone to care about them.
They want to be your friend. Most are orphans who live with a single mom, Aunt or Grandparent so they don't get much attention at home.
The school really needs more beds. 2 or 3 kids have to share each twin bed.
A mattress is $35 and a bunk bed is about the same price.

We were able to take lots of kids shopping, swimming, or to do other fun things they may have never done. We packed 18 kids in a 8 passenger van.
They all had tons of fun. Won't you donate to help get beds or other supplies for the kids? They will so happy! Any amount helps. Click on the Yellow DONATE button at the top of the blog! Thanks!

Everyone should watch the movie War Dance to see how hard life is in Uganda


  1. I just watched all 10 parts to this movie. What is there to comment? I don't have the words to say, but only a prayer to lift up to Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. Please Lord hear me now, protect these people of Northern Uganda. I ask for your peace, your love, your grace and your mercy to be upon them. Help the hurt and broken hearted, heal their souls with the peace that comes from knowing and living in your grace and mercy. I also pray for the rebels Lord, please soften their hearts. I pray that your Word is being sent to these people and that they know you. I pray this in Jesus's wonderful name, Amen

  2. i have this DVD it is such a good film!

  3. This is a very touching post, poverty is the result of our selfishness and greed!

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…
