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.
Finally the date for our next team trip to Uganda is set. It starts on December 2, 2018. Some of us will stay until 2 January 2019, others will leave earlier. If you would like to join us on our team trip this year, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Gabi will get in touch with you immediately and send you all necessary information.
On March 23rd and 24th we were busy packing parcels again. Thanks to your donations of money and commodity items we were able to send a total of eight packages to Uganda with so urgently needed clothing, shoes, school materials, toys, books and much more. The growing number of residents can hardly wait to receive the parcels. This time four parcels were completely filled with commodity items donated from our friends in Amsterdam and the shipping was also financed by them. Many thanks for that. Many thanks also to our hard-working helpers Audrey, Beatriz, Gabi, Heidi, Helder, Louise, Manfred, Mario, Nina F., Nina J., Olaf, Sarah, Silvana and Susanne. You’ve done a great job! The parcels are on their way to Uganda since 26 March 2018 and you can follow them via these links: https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127760100 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127770109 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127720104 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127730103 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127740102 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127750101 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127790107 https://www.dhl.de/de/privatkunden/pakete-empfangen/verfolgen.html?piececode=00000209418127780108

Gabriele Haak, Warren Weidorn, Sameh Fares and his wife Hadeel Khallouf, four of the currently 21 members of Peace’s Hope, traveled from Duesseldorf to Amsterdam for the townhall. Gabi, Julia and Silvia shared, in a session full of emotions and participation, their MIT experience in Uganda in December 2016 and the journey from Gabi’s first trip to Jinja in 2014 until the creation of Peace’s Hope. Currently running projects were also presented, such as the construction works for the new Children’s Home and Mirembe Cottage.

With the help of Henkel colleague Gaula Hababa, we wereWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Like every association we have an organizational structure. We have been able to build a great team, which is performing the official tasks and duties of our association.

E-Mail: email@example.com Co-chairman Warren Weidhorn The Peace’s Hope Association is the result of Gabi’s long yearning to help other people, especially children. In 2014 she was finally able to realize this in Uganda and has since then captivated me and many other people. Donations require great trust in their use. Through her numerous visits to the site and proven donations for projects, she could inspire me as well. I am pleased that we have foundWeiterlesen / Continue reading
