Diary Team-Trip 2019

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.   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 their certificates today. To celebrate the day, all classes prepared a small performance and presented it to their parents and other guests. Sometimes we sang, sometimes we danced. Also different speeches entertained the visitors. The highlight of the day was a joint dance, which the students taughtWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Urgent needs Sonrise Ministries

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 784.86 Euro Already invested as an association locally: 9,598.46 Euro If you want to contribute to thisWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Construction Sonrise Baby Home

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 However, the house is already outdated.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), which can be purchased. There, the Sonrise Baby Home is planning to build several duplex houses like they did with Sonrise Children’s Home in Kamuli.Weiterlesen / Continue reading

Update about Michael

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.

James RIP

Mzee James

During our last team trip we met James, whom the children from Sonrise Children’s Home lovingly called Mzee James (Grandpa James). We reported about him in our diary when we visited him with the children on Christmas Eve. James was so ill that he lost the fight against death today. We mourn very much for this kind person whom we would have liked to visit again on our next team trip. We are grateful that we could at least prepare his last Christmas as a special one with some presents. Rest in peace Mzee James. We will miss you.

New arrival at Sonrise Baby Home

In January we have a new addition to the Sonrise Baby Home. Gabi Suubi. Suubi means hope. She was abandoned in Kabubu. Sonrise is looking for her mother, but so far they had no success. Gabi is estimated to be 1 year old and severely malnourished. The first examination in the hospital showed that she also suffers from tuberculosis. We are glad that she is now in good hands with our dear Auntie Peace and hope very much that she will soon gain weight and survive the serious illness. Update March 03, 2019: Gabi has developed surprisingly well in this short time. She has grown from a malnourished, weak baby to a little bundle of joy. We are so happy that she is now so well. Thanks so much to Sonrise Baby Home for making another miracle.

Special project for Michael – Project goal achieved

Many thanks to all donors. We have achieved the project goal to care for and the recovery of Michael. We can’t tell you how happy we are about it 🙂   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 forWeiterlesen / Continue reading
