Kids have many needs

 May 27, 2014 1:26pm

The kids in Uganda deal with so much like what I have written out below.
Several stories pop out like the girl who
told me she can't always take both sugar and soap
to boarding school so she takes just soap as she has to have it to wash her clothes.
Even if school fees are covered kids still have so many needs. School shoes are a big one
because of all the walking most do in
muddy slippery conditions the shoes wear out fast.  $15-$20 is beyond what most families can afford to pay for shoes when a typical wage is $1-$2 a day.    Plus some kids feet grow fast
but many are still wearing the same size clothes 3 yrs later.
To grow only 3-4 inches in 3 yrs isn't much.

They can wear clothes for a long time but shoes have to be replaced a lot. 
Some children wear old torn clothing that is very dirty. 
If anyone can help by buying some soap and other things for kids without sponsors that would be great. 
Some kids beg to find sponsors to attend highschool but its very expensive and most parents can't pay any fee so the child quits school after grade 7.  I've listed some items the kids need most. Any amount given
will help out our un-
sponsored kids greatly.

Highschool fees paid 3 times per year .  $110 a term (3 terms/yr )

Soap $2.50 per child

Sugar $2 per child

School shoes $15 ages 3-8         & $20 ages 9-17

Salt and cooking oil $3 per child

Notebooks $3 per child

School socks  $3 per child

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.


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…

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!
