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 this area a few days ago. It seems they are starting over. Any help is welcome! Abu's sis would love a sponsor also I'm sure. An extra $10 monthly for her would mean another 4-5 days of food.




Help  a precious baby in such great need. The mom can't keep going by only
selling sugar cane. She won't earn enough to provide even 1 meal a day. Have compassion  for those with so little. 

They live in mud hut which isn't helping his condition. Too much dust all over affecting his breathing. Who will consider giving $5- $10 or more? We will provide photos each time food is taken to his home.

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 .

Uganda Healthcare and Ever increasing needs.

8-12-18 9:24 am

After spending several months in UG its time to post about things I saw while there. Regarding healthcare and extreme needs in rural Kamuli. One of the most poor and illiterate places in UG.

There is an increase in the Hep B disease but not enough vaccines to go around. Someone on the news said a health care worker told them if your already going to die, just die.
I have no idea why compassion , care & sympathy is so sorely lacking in Uganda especially among the health care workers. It's very tragic when families can't even afford as little as $5 to treat malaria ,
typhoid or anything else. Missionaries say they've witnessed nurses and docs laughing at and ridiculing patients who can't pay . Some even have little babies who die because no nurse will touch them until money is paid. We recently had a young girl wait 11 days for a simple hernia surgery. No explanation as to why other than they were "busy" and no one ever has the chance to see…

Our kids had very simple Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations at home with their families and at overnight church services.
Many are away seeing relatives in other areas.  They will be getting all their belated Christmas gifts soon for the New Year. No one exchanges gifts in Uganda not even the middle class..
So anytime a gift comes its a blessing. Be ready for lots of photos of the areas I travel to. Happy New year to all thanks for all the support. Let's make 2017 ever Better for these kids!
