Finally the Christmas Gift project 2018 has started. If you would also like to give a Christmas present to a child in one of the three Sonrise Ministries houses, a child of the caregivers, the caregivers themselves or the families in Masese this year, then click on the following link and you will be forwarded directly to the project page. There are some new features compared to last year. So we have set up a “big pot” for those who don’t want to decide for a certain child. All further information about the project and the changes can be found under the following link: Christmas presents
All four packages arrived safely in Uganda, which we packed in August and shipped in September. The children and caregivers of the Sonrise Ministries were excited about all the nice things that we could send there thanks to your donations. Unfortunately with a little melancholy, since this was probably the last parcel shipment in this form. The East African Community (EAC) has decided to impose high customs duties on the import of donations in kind in order to protect their domestic markets. We can therefore only take small amounts of commodity items with us in our suitcases when travelling to the destination country. What we are looking for, you will find in our project commodity items. Once again, many thanks to all of you who in the past have always provided us with such beautiful commodity items and financed the shipping of our parcels. Without you this would not have been possible.

We would like to give the children and caregivers at Sonrise Ministries and the families in Masese – a slum area in Jinja – individual presents to brighten up their Christmas. With 20 Euro for a certain child or a freely selectable amount for the “big pot” we can buy educational toys, clothes, hygiene articles and food locally and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone. We have changed the project a little bit. Of course you can continue to choose a child directly. The amount per child is still 20 Euro. However, the “big pot” is new. You may pay any amount into this pot, if you do not want to decide for a specific child. At the end of the project we then divide this amount between the children without direct donors, the caregivers of Sonrise Ministries and the families of Masese. At the end ofWeiterlesen / Continue reading
On 18th of August we sorted again commodity items, packed parcels and already the one or other suitcase for our trip in December. Thanks to your donations we were able to send a total of four parcels to Uganda with urgently needed clothes, shoes, school materials, toys, books and much more. Thanks of course also to our lovely helpers Doris, Gabi, Hadeel, Lena, Linda, Nina, Nora, Sameh and Sarah. You were a great team. This time the packing process was connected with very much melancholy, since it is probably the last time that we will send parcels to Uganda. The EAC (East African Community) has decided for the protection of the domestic market that commodity items have to be limited and sent with very high customs duties to some East African countries. This also includes Uganda. Nevertheless, we always collect some commodity items, which we then take with us onWeiterlesen / Continue reading
On 9th September 2018 was a day full of joy at the Mirembe Cottage of Street Girls. After three years of planning and construction, the current 31 girls and their caregivers were finally able to move into their new home in Wakikoola/Uganda. The new home now offers space for a total of 58 girls. So we are able to offer even more girls a safe home far away from the life on streets. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible.
