Orphans

Feb 18, 11:23 am

I remember the little girl at school who hung her head when I said where is your bed.
Another child said "She doesn't have one". She showed me her mattress that she puts on the dorm
floor each night just like several of the other girls. They sleep 2  people to each twin size mattress.
Sometimes more. She has no home and no family that wanted her. They were tired of her
so she lives permanently at school until finishing grade 7 when she can move on to high school.
There are so many kids like her. One's who need attention no matter their age.
Even the teenage boys at the school liked playing with hot wheels cars and they always asked
a lot of questions about their sponsors. It's hard to be a kid when there are no adults who can
give advice and encouragement to them daily. It's a hard culture to live in also when kids aren't
treated as the important people they are. So many kids are abused by relatives who don't want them.
No one wants to take on the duty of raising an orphaned child when everyone can barely feed their own
kids.  Some of the kids told me about their hard life when they lived at an orphanage that was
run by a very corrupt person who hardly even fed the kids. They are still dealing with the trauma from that.
Will you open your heart to one of these kids today? Help them get an education.

The Most Needy , Help change a life.

6:53pm 9/8/16

We have registered new kids into our program and we've

 been able to 
take food to this large group when I visit twice a year,
but its clear THEY NEED SO MUCH MORE! 
 You can clearly see the need in the video It seems to be one large family and a few neighbors (30 or so people in total) . All these people fit into just 3-4 small homes. So 20 kids will be needing a sponsor for school (those who are old enough to join school ) this typically age 3 and above. Lots of them are staying at home because their relatives can't afford to pay anything for them to attend school, they have a time affording even food and clothing .
Sharing this blog post will be of great help . Anyone is welcome to make a 1 time donation to help with food and clothes for this very desperate group of people. Their clothes are 
only rags. Any assistance given is greatly appreciated . See their happy faces below for simple gifts.











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 .
