Since August 2019 there has been a new addition to the Sonrise Baby’s Home. Flavia moved into the Baby’s Home in mid-August. She is about one and a half years old, severely malnourished and suffers from tuberculosis, which is why she is currently housed separately from the other babies. Now she is being cared for and nursed up so that she can put on weight again. Flavia’s mother is infected with HIV and needs urgent treatment, which is why she cannot take care of Flavia for the time being. We hope that the two can live together again when both are better. At Sonrise Baby’s Home Flavia is in good hands.
In August 2019 Miria moved to the Sonrise Baby’s Home. Miria has been staying at the Baby’s Home since the beginning of August. When she was born, Miria’s mother had to undergo a C-section. Unfortunately she did not wake up from the anaesthesia, which left Miria without her mother. The father drinks and it was not safe to leave Miria with him. Also the means in the village were missing to take care of her. It is good to know that the little one is now in caring hands at Sonrise Baby’s Home.
Today we celebrate our second anniversary! On 19 July 2017 Peace’s Hope was founded as an official association. Since then we could realize many projects thanks to your help. We would like to thank you very much for that! We are looking forward to the coming years, in which we want to grow and implement new great projects in Uganda.
We are planning our next teamtrip to Uganda in mid-October to the end of November 2019. Are you interested in our work and want to participate as a volunteer? Then join our information meeting on Tuesday, June 25 in Düsseldorf. Please sign in for the meeting by mailing a short message to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to meeting you!
Today we received the news that Michael’s stay at the Babies Home has to be extended until the end of the year. Due to the severe malnutrition he suffered during his first year of life, his immune system is very unstable. The living conditions in Masese are therefore still too dangerous. In agreement with the parents, who are trying very hard to maintain a stable relationship with their son, Michael will remain at the Sonrise Babies Home until the end of the year. There they will work intensively on building up a stable immune system with the help of special food and vitamins. This will double our project goal to a total of 2,800 euros.

At our last General Assembly on 08 May 2019, Guadalupe was elected Secretary of Peace’s Hope. She is a founding member and supports the association from the beginning with full force! Silvana, who had held the office until then, unfortunately had to resign for private reasons. Thank you Silvana for supporting us so actively as secretary since the foundation of the association!
As you may have noticed, you’ll find new posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter every week since the beginning of the year. We want to give you a better insight into our work with the children of Sonrise Ministries. Sarah, our social media representative, regularly provides you with news and information about the association. She will also take over the newsletter in the future by keeping you informed about the latest activities and projects.
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.

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.
