Look at who is in the Newspaper

The kids were all set to start school thanks to your support. Unfortunately, there is a teacher strike in Uganda. Hopefully the strike will end soon and the kids can get started. Bukedde, the Luganda language newspaper, interviewed a few of the parents and our in-country director, Brian Tuwereza, on their thoughts about the strike.

Please pray that the strike is over very soon!

Preparing for Labor Day

Today is Labor Day in the US. A day spent with family and friends, bar-b-q, homemade ice cream, and plenty of fun.

This weekend in Kamengo they were preparing for labor day, but a different kind of labor. In Uganda, women giving birth are required to bring their own birthing supplies with them. These supplies include plastic sheeting to give birth on, a razor blade to cut the umbilical cord, twine to tie the cord off with, soap to wash with, and other items for the new mom and baby. Most of the women in Uganda can't afford to buy these things. Thankfully through your donations we were able to provide 30 birthing kits to women in Kamengo.

We were also able to give a few kits to Mama Florence, the midwife in the village, to help out when women aren't able to provide their own kit.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers!!

We are still taking donations for school sponsorships. Help us send the kids of Kamengo to school!!!
