Suffering of Ugandan Child

Since visiting Uganda I've learned so much more about how the kids are treated there.
If you are a step child you'll never be treated well. Step kids have to work and do almost all the chores at home. They are sometimes denied education and even food. Some have to sleep on the group outside their home. Aunts and Uncle and even grandparents sometimes neglect and abuse the orphans they are caring for since no one wants to raise someone else's child. The poverty is so awful there. Not just a lack of money but a lack of love and care for children in general. Kids as young as 3 are free to roam their villages. Usually No one comes looking for them they just wander from house to house playing with other kids. Food prices soared to record highs in Uganda within the past year so its even harder for a family to feed their children.
Some kids live at school because their relatives have turned them away and said don't come back home.
They are whipped with sticks and even cut with knives sometimes. Abuse is rampant there. So that is why child sponsorship is SO IMPORTANT! If a child can't rely on their own relatives, then if a kind stranger steps in to help a child get an education is a really amazing thing. Most of these kids think no one cares for them but if a sponsor can write letters to them and encourage them it really helps a child to have more confidence. $15 a month helps a child get an education and 2 meals at school each day. Will you consider sponsoring a very needy but wonderful child today? Click on our yellow Donate button it will take you to pay pal. You are also welcome to make a 1 time donation if you can't commit to helping a child long term.

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…
