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 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
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.

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 brighten up their 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 locally and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone. We have changed the project a little bit. Of course you can continue to choose a child directly. The amount per child is still 20 Euro. However, the “big pot” is new. You may pay any amount into this pot, if you do not want to decide for a specific child. At the end of the project we then divide this amount between the children without direct donors, the caregivers of Sonrise Ministries and the families of Masese.
