Hard life for Ugandan Children

April 25,2013    9:48 am
Many Families in Uganda find it hard to provide for their children.
A typical family will earn $1-$2 a day. Food for 1 meal such as a bag of cornmeal
or beans costs about 80 cents to $1 so families spend the majority of their income on food.
So they will sometime's send their children to an orphanage or school to live if they can't afford to
feed them at home. Children aren't often valued there and many end up on the streets either
because they run away from abusive homes or because their relatives throw them out
if no one cares about them. Imagine if you had to give away your child because you couldn't feed them.
Consider donating today so a child can stay at home and not have to be sent away because they
can't be fed and have their basic needs taken care of. Many kids eat breakfast or lunch at their schools
and that might be their only meal each day.

Sponsor a child today by clicking our yellow DONATE button at the top of the blog.

It will take you to pay pal. $15 a month will sponsor 1 child. We also accept 1 time donations.
Any amount helps!
Below are kids who receive gifts from their sponsors. Visit our main site to choose a child
to sponsor at www.auntiesangels.com  We gave most of the kids mosquito nets last month which will protect them from getting malaria. The nets can be life saving. A net is $8

The Most Needy , Help change a life.

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 .
