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.


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!
