BENEFITING: New Global Citizens
House of hope in in Uganda
To provide hope to Ugandan adults and children with cancer and support their caregivers while they are undergoing treatment. The goal is to establish a home for cancer patients who need a place to stay while undergoing outpatient treatment at the cancer treatment center in Kampala, Uganda. The House of HOPE will be built next to the Uganda Cancer Institute at the national referral hospital, making it easy and convenient for patients and caregivers.
Cuthbertson High School New Global Citizens is raising money for the House of Hope and engaging the local community to become more active in charity work. The organization is student run and has set a goal of raising at least $5000 for the House of Hope in Uganda.
