We’re working hard to bring smiles to the faces of our communities in Uganda: all the people you see here are happy because people like you helped us to help them.
We’ve brought water, and a community centre to the deprived village of Kamengo Ffunvu; we continue to support them with programmes encompassing healthcare & education, and send regular donations of clothing and the basics of life.
We’ve put smiles on the faces of hundreds of children through our outreach work in the slums of Kampala; and our support of children’s homes & projects in the community: we’ve sponsored dozens of children through education and residential care. Now, we'd like you to help us treat them at Christmas as well.
People will often forget what you said, or what you did - but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. The children forced to live on the streets of Kampala through no fault of their own, some as young as five years old, are tired, hungry, abused and terrified. We'll continue to help rehome as many as we can using your donations, but in the meantime we'd like you to help us make as many of them as possible feel loved at Christmas time.
You'll probably have heard of shoebox appeals before - but this one is different. We give you the details of a specific child to prepare a box of goodies for and encourage you to include a card or letter, along with a photo if you like. In return, you'll get a thank you letter from your beneficiary who will know exactly who's thinking of them at Christmas - which can be a difficult time for a child who is lost, or separated from their family.
If you think this is something you'd like to do, then please send us a message (or email us via email@example.com) and we'll send you details of who your box is for, what to put in it and where to send it. But please don't delay - shipping to Uganda takes time, so we need completed boxes by FRIDAY 21st OCTOBER 2017.
If you feel this isn't for you, or you don't have enough time, please help us to help others by donating to our projects using the links below.
