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.

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!
