A massive thank you to all who have donated and are helping us to feed children in Uganda at the children’s home and in the community this Christmas.
The total raised so far is £470 and this will be match funded by BIS Group (www.bis-group.co.uk) which will take the total to £940, but you still have until Sunday 18th to make your donations online – so let’s try and raise £2,000 between us!
This has been an exciting year for us as a charity as we’ve looked to support families in the local community, families like Noeline’s.
Noeline’s mother Nabuuma and her father Samuel work hard to feed their children but were struggling to afford to send Noeline to school. Even though Noeline was going to a government school, they still have to pay for her food and exams. We have been able to pay these fees, and are working with Nabuuma and Samuel to build independence and take back control of their financial situation. We are also looking at providing a loan so that Nabuuma can set up her own business in the New Year as a hair dresser which will give them even more control of their situation and future.
Christmas in Uganda is a time to come together as family and friends to celebrate with dancing, singing and most important of all, feasting! Together, we now have an opportunity to partner with Nabuuma and Samuel to continue to protect and build on their hope by providing them and their children with food this Christmas.
We have partnered with BIS www.bis-group.co.uk in South Wales to enable us to meet more needs like Nabuuma and Samuel’s, so whatever you donate, BIS will match it by donating the same amount. This means that together we can help more families stay out of poverty.
Please join with us to support Nabuuma, Samuel, Noeline and her siblings, and other families in similar circumstances this Christmas.
“If we were to receive help this Christmas, it will limit our expenses, and that money can be used towards rent and school fees” Nabuuma
