During our last stay in Uganda we were approached by a mother in Masese – a slum area in Jinja. She gave us her one-year-old baby Michael and asked us for help. Michael is severely malnourished and also has a large painful ulcer in the genital area. The later examination in the hospital has shown that he urgently needs an operation. In order to survive, he must first reach a normal weight. He currently weighs less than 5 kilograms. Michael’s mother herself has too little to eat to produce enough breast milk for the child. In consultation with the mother and father, Michael will be taken care of by our dear Auntie Peace at the Sonrise Babies Home for some time until he has reached a weight that makes the operation possible. His mother will be regularly given the opportunity to visit her child. As Sonrise currently has too manyWeiterlesen / Continue reading
It is with great pleasure that we can report today that we have found a sponsor for the Christmas present for all children. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. That is so great. And also the big pot has already filled well. With this we can prepare a Merry Christmas for the caregivers of the Sonrise Ministries as well as for the families in Masese. We can hardly wait to report in our diary, how the money was invested and how everyone was happy about it. Please use the following link to join us on our journey: Team trip 2018 If you like, you can still donate for the big pot.

Here we will report again what our team experienced on our trip from December 2, 2018 to January 2, 2019, what tasks we had locally and how your donations were used. We wish you a lot of fun reading. 03 January 2019 Even though our diary actually ends on January 02, there’s still a little update on Michael. Since today he is in the Sonrise Babies Home and is taken care of by Auntie Peace. 02. January 2019 Arrived at the airport in Entebbe, now the long waiting begins, since our flight starts only at 5 o’clock in the morning. Also in Istanbul we have to wait a lot. Tired we finally reach Düsseldorf in the late afternoon. First big joy that all suitcases arrived. Unfortunately not always the standard at the airline with which we travelled. Then the next big joy.

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.
