Two New Children's Homes in Uganda!

07/26/13

Two years ago, our Children's Homes in Uganda were bursting at the seams. With sixty-one children living in our original circle of seven homes, we were above capacity. And with our young boys and girls becoming teenagers, our in-country staff recommended a separate circle of homes. (Not to mention there are hundreds of orphaned children in the surrounding area who are living in child-headed households and are desperate for a home and a family to care for them.)


So many children are living in child-headed households and need a home and a family to care for them

These new homes will serve initially to move some of the older boys into a separate, larger area. Eventually, the circle of seven new homes will allow more children in need to enter into full-time care.  

You saw the need and responded, funding the first two of seven new homes in December. Today, the first two homes are complete! Check out the photos of the whole process:

Thank you for providing children in Uganda with homes, love, care, education, and a future—things every child should have access to. They are so grateful for your care!
