This year, we are celebrating Christmas a little…differently!
In place of the hustle and bustle of gift buying and gift wrapping and gift getting, we are working to celebrate the Advent season by giving the gift of hope and change to the Children at the Bukedea CarePoint in Uganda (Africa).
As part of the Change their Story Campaign and in the heart of the
” movement, we are asking our friends and family to consider joining us in giving a gift to Jesus this Christmas.
After all…it is His birthday!
Jesus said (Mathew 25:31-46) that whenever we clothe, feed, and care for the hungry, poor and broken that we are doing so to Him. So this Christmas we are once again asking you to consider joining us in buying a small gift for the Reason for the season, Jesus.
We are raising funds for two separate projects (one at each of our CarePoints in Uganda) and would love you to consider joining in the fun and festivity of the true meaning of Christmas.
We are raising $18,750 to provide a Kitchen, Latrine, and Multi-Purpose Building for the Ogoloi CarePoint.
The Ogoloi CarePoint is a place of refuge for more than 120 orphaned children from the region. These children are provided daily meals, basic medical care, and the opportunity to attend school through the CarePoint and by a sponsorship of just $34 a month. These sponsorships provide hope and change to their lives.
The Ogoloi CarePoint is in desperate need of both a kitchen and a pit latrine. The daily preparation of meals for the orphans who attend the Carepoint is a long and tedious task (currently done in the open over hot fires and large pots). The kitchen building to be constructed is really just a small enclosure with a tin roof to provide shelter and a secure place to prep the meals. The Pit Latrine is necessary to ensure a sanitary environment for the kids who visit the site daily for meals, play, and discipleship. Your donation to this project is much needed and will make a huge difference in the CarePoints ability to serve these kids.
We are also raising $2,500 to provide a fence for the Bukedea CarePoint
The Bukedea CarePoint is a place of refuge for more than 200 orphaned children from the region. These children are provided daily meals, basic medical care, and the opportunity to attend school through the CarePoint and by a sponsorship of just $34 a month. These sponsorships provide hope and change to their lives.
The Bukedea CarePoint is in desperate need of a fence so that the staff can begin to grow crops at the facility and to ensure the safety of the kids during the day, and the supplies at night. Exposed CarePoint facilities and activities presents potential security risks at Bukedea CarePoint. The construction of a fence around the CarePoint will increase the level of security by reducing the risk of theft but more importantly will provide greater security for the children when they are at the CarePoint. Your donation will help to improve the CarePoint by making it more secure for the children
