The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic continues to keep us in suspense. In Uganda, inbound travellers from Western Europe are still subject to a two-week quarantine. Moreover, the situation in the country itself is difficult to assess. For these reasons we have decided with a heavy heart to suspend this year’s team trip for security reasons.
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
We would like to thank all supporters of this year’s Christmas project! With your help we were able to give Christmas presents to all Sonrise children, as well as to the children of the caregivers. In addition, some money could be used to buy some items of urgent need for each house. The money from the big pot will be used for Christmas presents for the caregivers and Sonrise staff, as well as for the families in Masese. In the name of the Peace’s Hope Team, the Sonrise Ministries Team and all the children a big THANK YOU!
In order to be able to use your many donations more flexibly on site, we have summarized some individual projects. You can now donate to the Baby Home, Children’s Home and Mirembe Cottage. The cross-house farm project and the urgent need will remain. As usual, special projects will also be listed separately. Click here for an overview
Many thanks to all our supporters! The project goal for 2019 has been reached 🙂 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 decorate 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 on the spot and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone. As in the previous year, you can continue to choose a child directly. The amount per child is still 20 Euro. Also the “big pot” is again from the part. In this pot one may pay any amount, if one does not want to decide for a child. At the end of the project we divide this amount between the children without direct donors, the carers of SonriseWeiterlesen / 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 0.54 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
