We are happy to announce that we have reached the donation target of 2800€ for Michael. He can now be fully supported until he is strong enough to move back to his family. We would like to thank you very much, as always we could count on you. THANK YOU!
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!
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.
One year Peace’s Hope e.V. The last 365 days have flown by. Exciting days are behind us and now we can celebrate our first anniversary. Much has happened, much has been achieved and our most important vision – 100 % of donations arrive locally – has been fulfilled. But we don’t want to miss to thank you, too. What would we be without our members, supporters, donors, family and friends. Only thanks to you we could realize so many things. The next year also promises to be exciting. The growing number of Sonrise fosterlings again presents us with great challenges. We really hope that you will continue to support us and help us to improve the lives of these children in Uganda sustainably.
On October 31st, a townhall took place in Henkel Amsterdam with the objective of presenting the newly created organization, Peace’s Hope, and the Sonrise orphanage to the Henkel colleagues. 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. Finally, three ways in which Henkel colleagues can get involved were also discussed, that is 1) Financially, 2) Volunteering from Home and 3) Volunteering in Uganda. With the help of Henkel colleague Gaula Hababa, we wereWeiterlesen / Continue reading
I am Gabi Haak (née Geisler) and live Düsseldorf. I was born in a small town called Prüm in the Eifel, close to Luxembourg and Belgium. Very early I was inspired by people like Mother Teresa. As a child, the desire to go into development aid grew constantly. But somehow my life turned out differently and I have been working in a big company for over 29 years now. I enjoy my work a lot, but the longing for development aid has never stopped. When my oldest niece travelled to Ghana with her school at the age of 14 to teach English and help build a classroom, the desire was irrepressible. So I started looking for ways to participate in such a project also as an adult. After endless researches in the internet I found an organization which could realize my wishes. In October 2014 it was finally done. MyWeiterlesen / Continue reading
