A look into their daily lives! Children in Uganda

May 13, 2013 7:53pm
Below are true stories of some of the kids who attend school in Jinja and they have found sponsors in
our charity.
One child was sent to live at school and her little brother was sent to live with a neighbor since their mom
can't afford to pay rent. The mom used to come and dig in the school garden to make some money and she would even eat at school since she couldn't afford food either. 

Two kids had a fire at their home last week .
They have said there was some damage to the home and it will need to be repaired but no one was hurt,
They did lose almost all of their possessions in the fire which wasn't much to begin with.
Many of these families barely have anything.

One boy was abused by his uncle and made to work everyday and missed a lot of school.
 He had no parents to care for him. 

One girl was given away by her father who got tired of raising her and was then abused by her aunt who cut her arm. 
Several have been told to leave their homes because their relatives are not wanting to feed, clothes and care
for them anymore. 
Many have no father, they either flee to another village or even another country to try and find a better
life and they never returned to care for their children. The kids often get malaria and typhoid. Both are deadly diseases if not treated quickly but many can't afford a few dollars for medical care.

So you can see what these deal with daily. Not knowing if they get to eat that day.  Imagine if you lived like they do. 
That's why its So Important for a child to have a sponsor. Won't you help one today?

These kids still need a sponsor!

Help a precious starving baby boy.

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…
