Christmas Gifts for the Sonrise Ministries 2020

Many thanks to all our supporters! The project goal for 2020 has been reached 😀 


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 decorate 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 on the spot and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone.

As in the previous year, you can continue to choose a child directly. The amount per child is still 20 Euro. Also the “big pot” is again from the part. In this pot one may pay any amount, if one does not want to decide for a child. At the end of the project we divide this amount between the children without direct donors, the carers of Sonrise Ministries and the families from Masese.

At the bottom of the page you can choose whether you want to donate for a child from the Sonrise Baby Home, Sonrise Children’s Home, a girl from the Mirembe Cottage of Street Girls, a caregiver child or for the “big pot”. The names are assigned from left to right. The colour change and the missing link to the donation form will show you immediately which child already has a sponsor. Orange = reserved/donation received, Turquoise = free. By clicking on “Donate” you will be asked to enter the child’s name and home in a form. As soon as we receive this form, we will block the child for other donors. Alternatively you can also choose the “big pot”. You will then receive the bank details for the donation account. Each child can only be selected once. Should there still be double donations, we will write to you. A click on one of the pictures below leads you to the selection of the children of the individual homes.

New this year is that you can now reserve your chosen children for the Christmas gift project for the coming years until further notice. If you wish to do so, please write a comment in the donation form. A revocation is possible at any time.

Important information about the project in 2020:
Unfortunately, this year we will not be able to send a personal Christmas card to your child. Due to the current situation around Covid19 we had to cancel our trip to Uganda this year with a heavy heart. Even a shipment to Uganda does not make sense at the moment, as the postal delivery is currently not secured. However, we will have a card printed for each child locally, which will be enclosed with the gift. Your name will of course be noted there as the donor. If you like, you can send us a photo of yourself via e-mail or by post and we will add it to the card in the frame on the back. You can see how the card will look like at the bottom of this page.
