Every year in September/October we start our Christmas project for the Sonrise Ministries in Uganda. We would like to make Christmas special for the children and caregivers as well as the families in Masese – a slum area in Jinja – with individual presents. With 20 Euros for a specific child or a freely chosen amount for the “big pot”, we can buy educational toys, clothes, toiletries and food on site and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone. Over the years, we have gained many regular donors who donate for the same child every year and are eagerly following the development of the children. If you would like to be one of our regular donors, please contact Nina by e-mail and we will add you to our Christmas donation list until further notice. The children are also always happy to receive personal Christmas greetings and photos of theWeiterlesen / Continue reading
The special vaccination project was stopped. The background is that shortly after the start of the project we were contacted by concerned members and supporters who are very critical of the topic of vaccination. We take the concerns of our members and supporters very seriously and have therefore decided to stop the project again.
Sonrise has asked us to start a special project to protect their children. The children are regularly infected with infectious diseases and need medical care. Therefore we would like to vaccinate all children against the most common diseases. In total we still need the following vaccinations for all three houses: 36 x mumps/measles/rubella – per vaccination approx. 17 Euro 148 x Hepatitis B – per vaccination approx. 12 Euro (average price, as in some cases the triple vaccination is still required) 141 x typhoid – approx. 13 Euro per vaccination 146 x yellow fever – per vaccination approx. 27 Euro For this project the amount of donations collected by Peace’s Hope e.V. has reached 0 Euro Already invested as an association locally: 0 Euro If you want to contribute to this project please fill in our donation form.
From now on we also offer sponsorships for the Sonrise Baby Home as well as for the children of the Sonrise Children’s Home and the girls of Mirembe Cottage. In the future, donations for the Baby Home can only be made in general. The background is that the costs for new arrivals are often very high. They are mostly malnourished, ill and need very intensive treatment, which is associated with high costs. However, as soon as the babies move to the Children’s Home, the sponsors are no longer available. This is why the Baby Home has problems to cover the running costs. For the Children’s Home and for the Mirembe Cottage a sponsorship for a specific child or girl can still be chosen. For the Baby Home a freely chosen monthly amount can be donated. The costs for an individual sponsorship are 120 Euro per child per month. ThisWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Paul travelled with our team to Uganda on 18 October 2019. He will stay 2 months with our dear friends of the Sonrise Ministries. After the last team left on November 30, 2019, Paul will report when he has experienced something special. So we can follow the development of the children and the progress of our projects over a long period of time. Read about his experiences here: 9 December 2019 The kids had their casting for the Lion King last Friday and presented a few sentences of the characters that they applied for. We have a total of 35 participants. As I am out sick with flu, I will have some time to think about who will be the future king, to invent some new characters and to write the script. 5 December 2019 Today was the first day of vacation for the Kamuli kids. AfterWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Here we will again report what our team experienced on our trip from 18 October 2019 to 30 November 2019, which tasks we had in Uganda and how your donations were used. What is new this year is that this time the diary will not only be written by one person, but that every traveler will report from his perspective. We wish you a lot of fun reading. 30 November 2019 (Gabi): I surprise the team with the fact that I receive them at the airport. I am very happy to see the three of them enjoying their past experiences so much. Tired, but with beautiful memories, everyone is now on their way home. 29 November 2019 (Giulia): For our last day in Uganda we saved something very special. After we said goodbye to the Baby home, we drove to Wakikoola. The students of the Mirembe School received theirWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Often we receive open donations that don’t have a particular purpose so we decided to create a project folder for these kind contributions. We will use these donations depending on the acute needs that we see and where the money is needed most. This can be for one of the construction projects, for medicine, food or also for the shipment of commodity items to Uganda. Moreover we would like to use a small amount of these contributions for some of the minor cost we incur during our project work, for example petrol costs or food for the Sonrise employees when they accompany us on trips etc. That way we assure that project donations are used 100 % for desired projects. For this project the amount of donations collected by Peace’s Hope e.V. has reached 2,297.39 Euro Already invested as an association locally: 10,663.46 Euro If you wantWeiterlesen / Continue reading
For several years now, the Sonrise Baby Home has been negotiating with the government for a fair price for the current residential building and land. The government is planning to build a train line here. So far, no agreement has been reached. In the meantime, it is also under discussion that the home can remain standing. However, the house is already outdated. Thus the roof must be renewed quite urgently. The health department has already warned several times that too many babies are now housed in too small space in the home and that the leaking roof leads to hygiene problems. In addition, Sonrise has no possibility to enlarge the house with extensions. Sonrise has been offered a plot of land in Jinja (see photo above), which can be purchased. There, the Sonrise Baby Home is planning to build several duplex houses (see drawings below) like they did with SonriseWeiterlesen / Continue reading
In January we started a special project for Michael. Michael comes from the slum area Masese and was severely malnourished. He also had a painful ulcer in his genital area, which urgently had to be surgically removed. In the meantime, thanks to many donations, we have already achieved almost 89 % of our project goal. The operation went without any complications and he is recovering noticeably thanks to the loving care of the caregivers of the Sonrise Babies Home. His parents come to visit him every two days so that the bond to them is maintained. We are so happy to have been able to help this sweet boy and his parents and hope very much that he can return home in three months.
