Every year in September/October we start our Christmas project for the Sonrise Ministries in Uganda. We would like to make Christmas special for the children and caregivers as well as the families in Masese – a slum area in Jinja – with individual presents. With 20 Euros for a specific child or a freely chosen amount for the “big pot”, we can buy educational toys, clothes, toiletries and food on site and thus prepare an unforgettable Christmas for everyone. Over the years, we have gained many regular donors who donate for the same child every year and are eagerly following the development of the children. If you would like to be one of our regular donors, please contact Nina by e-mail and we will add you to our Christmas donation list until further notice. The children are also always happy to receive personal Christmas greetings and photos of theWeiterlesen / Continue reading
We would like to thank all supporters of this year’s Christmas project! With your help we were able to give Christmas presents to all Sonrise children, as well as to the children of the caregivers. In addition, some money could be used to buy some items of urgent need for each house. The money from the big pot will be used for Christmas presents for the caregivers and Sonrise staff, as well as for the families in Masese. In the name of the Peace’s Hope Team, the Sonrise Ministries Team and all the children a big THANK YOU!
Paul travelled with our team to Uganda on 18 October 2019. He will stay 2 months with our dear friends of the Sonrise Ministries. After the last team left on November 30, 2019, Paul will report when he has experienced something special. So we can follow the development of the children and the progress of our projects over a long period of time. Read about his experiences here: 9 December 2019 The kids had their casting for the Lion King last Friday and presented a few sentences of the characters that they applied for. We have a total of 35 participants. As I am out sick with flu, I will have some time to think about who will be the future king, to invent some new characters and to write the script. 5 December 2019 Today was the first day of vacation for the Kamuli kids. AfterWeiterlesen / Continue reading
In order to be able to use your many donations more flexibly on site, we have summarized some individual projects. You can now donate to the Baby Home, Children’s Home and Mirembe Cottage. The cross-house farm project and the urgent need will remain. As usual, special projects will also be listed separately. Click here for an overview
Here we will again report what our team experienced on our trip from 18 October 2019 to 30 November 2019, which tasks we had in Uganda and how your donations were used. What is new this year is that this time the diary will not only be written by one person, but that every traveler will report from his perspective. We wish you a lot of fun reading. 30 November 2019 (Gabi): I surprise the team with the fact that I receive them at the airport. I am very happy to see the three of them enjoying their past experiences so much. Tired, but with beautiful memories, everyone is now on their way home. 29 November 2019 (Giulia): For our last day in Uganda we saved something very special. After we said goodbye to the Baby home, we drove to Wakikoola. The students of the Mirembe School received theirWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Many thanks to all our supporters! The project goal for 2019 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 SonriseWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Dear supporters of Peace’s Hope, we would like to thank you very much. Thanks for your help, all children have found a donor for their Christmas presents! At short notice two more children have been added to the Baby Home, which we will update on the project page in the next two days. It would be nice if we could also find donors for the two of them.
The first team, led by Heidi, has landed safely in Uganda. The next two weeks Petra, Eszter, Wafa, Zuzana, Charline, Heidi, Paul, Fra and Miriam will talk about their experiences! You are welcome to browse our diary every day to find out what the team experiences in Jinja, Wakikoola and Kamuli. Here is the link to the diary!
Last Sunday and the following Monday, a large part of the donated commodity items received was already packed into the donation cases. A total of 13 full suitcases came out. Many thanks to the many donors and also to the helpers who were there sorting, packing and weighing. This year, thanks to the large team on site, we can take numerous donated commodity items. These include, among other things: Toothbrushes, pencils, school supplies, clothes, shoes, underwear, books and toiletries. We have received many donated commodity items! On Sunday all donations were viewed and sorted. A lot of clothing was collected for all three houses. At the end of the day all shelves were well used! On Monday the suitcases were filled. Some airlines offer their passengers to take two 20kg bags with them, the second of which will be used for donations. At the end theWeiterlesen / Continue reading
