Diary Team-Trip 2022

Here we will report again what our team has experienced on our trip from 07 November to 06 December 2022, what tasks we had locally and how your donations were used. Also this year, the diary will not only be written by one person, but each traveler will tell once from his perspective. We hope you enjoy reading it.   07.11.2022 (Gabi) I have about 24 hours of travel ahead of me, but I am full of anticipation to finally see all the children and caregivers of Sonrise Ministries again. The day already starts great. The cab driver who takes me to the airport is so interested in the project that he gives me cash right away and tells me to use it on site. The flights leave on time and Richard is already waiting for me at the airport. Tired, I go to bed around 2 a.m. local time.Weiterlesen / Continue reading

Sonrise Ministries Christmas Presents 2022

Also this year we would like to brighten the Christmas of the children and caregivers at Sonrise Ministries and the families in Masese – a slum district in Jinja – with individual gifts. With 20 Euros for a specific child or an amount of your choice for the “big pot”, we can buy educational toys, clothes, hygiene products and food locally and thus give everyone an unforgettable Christmas. As in the previous year, you may still choose the children directly. The amount per child is still 20 euros. Also the “big pot” is again part of the party. You can pay any amount into this pot if you do not want to choose a child. At the end of the project we will divide this amount among the children without a direct donor, the caregivers of Sonrise Ministries and the families from Masese. At the bottom of the page youWeiterlesen / Continue reading

School Sponsorship

  From now on we also offer school sponsorships for the babies of the Sonrise Baby Home in Wabirongo or a community child of the Sonrise Children’s Home in Kamuli or the Mirembe Cottage in Wakikoola. With this sponsorship you enable the babies and the community children to receive a school education, which is a good basis for their future life. In addition, the children receive two warm meals a day. Since the Baby Home unfortunately does not have its own school, the monthly costs are somewhat higher at 45 Euros. The community children in Kamuli and Wakikoola can attend the schools of Sonrise Ministries, so the costs here are 15 Euros per month. It would be wonderful if you could also sponsor a school uniform including socks and shoes for the children to start school. It always makes them so proud. The one-time costs for this are 30 EurosWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Sponsorship

  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

Urgent needs Sonrise Ministries

  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 quick help locally.    For this project the amount of donations collected by Peace’s Hope e.V. has reached   250.13 Euro   Already invested as an association locally: 21,033.46 Euro   If you want to contribute to this project please fill in our donation form.

Construction Sonrise Baby Home

In December 2021, our babies could finally move into their new home in Wabirongo. The new complex consists of six residential houses and an office/warehouse building. They have a beautiful view to the river Nile. All houses were equipped with solar panels and connected directly to the newly built water well. For the people in the surrounding communities, we had an outside access to the well laid in December. The gratefulness of the people for the clean drinking water is unbelievable. However, the demand is much higher than a single well can currently provide. Therefore, we would like to have a second well built as soon as possible. This is also needed for the next step in this project. The construction of a small clinic for our babies and the surrounding communities. The nearest hospital is a good 40-minute drive away in Jinja. The old house is now used asWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Construction Sonrise Children’s Home

  Until 2017 the Sonrise Children’s Home was situated in a rented building which didn’t provide enough room for the increasing number of children for some time. Thanks to some donations we were able to buy a piece of land in Kamuli which is roughly a two-hours drive away from Jinja. There are several reasons why we bought a piece of land that far away. It was not only the prize, but also the Sonrise Ministries founders’ vision to help people not only within but also outside of their own organisation. The extensive project envisages the construction of several buildings like a number of residential buildings for the children and staff, some school buildings, water wells, sanitary facilities, solar collectors, offices, a cafeteria, a hospital, a library, a guest house, a farm and many more. The project will be realised according to the incoming amount of donations. It will alsoWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Construction Mirembe Cottage of Street Girls

  Until 2017, 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

Farm Sonrise Ministries

  Another big step towards independence for the three homes is the establishment of a farm. For example, cows daily supply fresh milk for the children, chicken eggs, beef cows meat etc. The cultivation of vegetables and fruit also helps to increase independence. And everything that arises as overproduction can be sold additionally. In order to be able to adequately supply the constantly growing number of home residents, there is a need for the following animal species, seeds, stables etc., which are listed below. Sonrise has also set itself the task of supporting the communities in the immediate vicinity with the launch of the “Piggery Community Empowerment Program”. The following is a Sonrise statement on this subject:  The goal of this program is to help provide families with extra income so that they can afford things such as paying for their Children’s education, being able to cover medical expenses, andWeiterlesen / Continue reading

Commodity items Sonrise Ministries

Unfortunately, we had to stop shipping in the previous form. The East African Community has decided to deduct high customs duties on the import of commodity items in order to protect their domestic markets. In the meantime this makes the shipment no longer profitable despite the great demand of the Sonrise Ministries. We will try to cover quite a bit via the local market. After all, boosting the local economy is also an important part of helping people to help themselves. However, we are still looking for and collecting some commodity items. We take these with us directly in our suitcases when we travel to Uganda. We currently have the greatest need for the following commodity items:   baby bottles and/or pacifiers for baby bottles brushes for baby bottles toothbrushes, electrical shavers/clipping machines, razors, razor blades, nail scissors, hair-bands, brushes, combs, product samples of any kind torches/ headlights crayons, pens,Weiterlesen / Continue reading
