Great things happened in May. We received two big donations for the construction projects we support in Uganda. In agreement with the sponsors, one donation will be used to expand the new residential building in Wakikoola for the girls of Mirembe Cottage. In this way, we are also helping to ensure that the building can be completed before the girls are expected to move into their new home in August. There they will then live nearby to their new school, which already opened in February. Up to 60 girls can be accommodated in this house. This will allow Mirembe to provide twice as many girls with a safe home away from the streets as before. The second donation will be used to build another school for the Sonrise Children’s Home in Kamuli. The school system in Uganda consists of three different schools. Nursery School for children aged 3 to 6, Primary School forWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Our experience with the Peaces Hope website has shown that we still have to work on setting up and distributing our projects. So we decided to combine some projects and reduce their overall number. In the future, we want to concentrate on one construction project per home. The projects medicine, urgent needs and parcel delivery have been combined. This will enable us to respond even more effectively to the most urgent needs on site.
We are planning a health campaign in a remote village in Uganda and urgently need the following donations: Eyeglasses in any thickness or simple reading glasses A note with the appropriate visual strength would be helpful. All glasses without details are checked before our departure by an optician. We are supported by ESKA Optik. Toothbrushes for all ages, mainly for children. These donations can either be handed over directly to one of Peace’s Hope e.V. members or handed out at the following collection points: ESKA Optik Stephan Karrasch Bahnstr. 15 40699 Erkrath Phone 0211/97719925 Katholisches Familienzentrum St. Johannes Manager Renate Dudek Kirchstr. 5a 40699 Erkrath Phone 0211/242691 If you do not have the possibility to submit your donations, write us an e-mail at email@example.com. We will contact you as soon as possible to arrange a transfer/delivery point.
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 1,131.27 Euro Already invested as an association locally: 8,814.42 Euro If you want to contribute to thisWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Until recently, the Mirembe Cottage of Street Girls was situated in a rented building which doesn’t have provided enough room for the increasing number of girls for quite some time. Thanks to some donations we were able to buy a piece of land in Wakikoola which is only a few minutes away from Jinja. With this project the founders of Sonrise Ministries also want to help people who don’t belong to their organisation. The extensive project envisages the construction of several buildings like two residential buildings, one for the girls and one for the staff, a school, one water well, sanitary facilities, solar collectors, a defensive wall, a cafeteria, a small hospital and many more. The project will be realised according to the incoming amount of donations. It will also benefit the surrounding community which currently lacks a school, a hospital and only offers a few jobs nearby. TheWeiterlesen / Continue reading
