Help us to provide food, water, and hope for 100 orphans for 1 year in Uganda, Africa at the cost of only 25 cents a day for each orphan in the refugee camp. The goal is to raise a total of $120,000 which will 1) cover the costs of the food, water, and life-giving hope supplies for one year; 2) fund a lasting water supply with a new freshwater well and 3) help construct orphanage buildings for the boys and girls.
Around the world, over 30,000 orphans and vulnerable children perish every day from the effects of malnutrition and hunger. Another 4,500 perish from drinking dirty water. All of us would agree that this is unacceptable, especially since children have no way to help themselves - like the orphans of Uganda.
Just 18 months ago, these children were orphans in South Sudan until they had to flee for their lives as their orphanage was threatened by warring factions embroiled in a civil war. Today they live in a refugee camp in northern Uganda without the help and support they need. They eat, sleep and go to school in an open field with over 100,000 other refugees.
