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?

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!
