I am doing this to help homeless and parentless 
children who are depending on their survival from the Masaka Street Children Project, in Masaka, Uganda.  I am an elementary school teacher  and I happen to care. I hate to see kids suffer anywhere.
 
 My friend, Moses Nkangi and others heroically provide shelter for these children, there is no one else.  Their funding has been sporadic at best and  this is an attempt to get them the food, medical help, and even repair facilities at this orphanage.  Long term goals are setting up a school, but the basics come first.Here are a couple of short stories about two of the kids.

Kyalimpa, 3years old, his mother died in an accident when he was only 1month old, the father took the responsibility of upbringing but he suffered the mistreatment of his step-mother and later he was abandoned, he joined the orphanage when he was about 6 months. We took care of him until now he’s 3years old,  healthy and ready to go school as soon as he gets the requirements.

Nampijja, 14years old she's the very girl we started with; her story is also a touching one her father died 10years ago, he was a poor fisherman who lost his life while doing his work, when he drowned, so sad that her mother died months later and so I decided to take care of her until now.  

Both stories were related to me by Moses Nganki.  I have omitted last names.  

Recently a very adorable young five-year-old girl had a situation with swelling in her hand, and a Dr. visit is extremely expensive .  finally, some money was scraped together and she saw a doctor and is out of pain.
Children can be fed there quite inexpensively so any amount you donate will help keep them from hunger and help get them medical care.  They

desparately need help and consistent help this is why the gofundme account was started.  So the money will be used directly for food, medical supplies, clothing, bedding, that young children need to survive.  Moses Nganki, and the children are very thankful for any support caring people give to their mission to save these homeless kids.

One thing badly needed due to the drought in Uganda are pumps to pump water from the nearby Nabajuzi River, which Moses Nganki has access to. Lots of water there, so he badly needs a pump. Think of it this way, he has a lot of land, he needs irrigation to keep growing coffee beans, maize, squash, and deliver drinking water to goats that are lambing. An industrial pump, and hosing costs about 1,000 dollars. They could be self-sufficient, and produce all the food they need and sell excess to the local markets. Your support is dearly needed and appreciated.

Any money you can spare goes directly towards food and health for the "Masaka Street Children." Moses Nganki is particularly in need of funds to take children for medical care, besides feed them. Even simple aspirin is hard to come by.

Dear Supporters and other people who want to make a difference, If you want to help, a blessed mission, I can not think of a better way to help people than by supporting the Masaka Street Children project. Tough enough to make it in this world with parents, but these kids are not that lucky. The project needs direct help, for food and medical supplies. So this is just basic. Very little of your contribution is taken up by bureaucratic costs. I can give itemized accounts of how this works. GoFundMe takes a small amount and so does Western Union. If we had larger contributions the percentage could be cut way down. Expecting the US would elect a humane president, I thought we would be looking at a more relaxed and positive economy. But life goes on and so the dire needs of these children in Masaka. I am ready to roll this year of 2,000 and 17, to help Moses Nganki, his mission and the children that rely on him. We can't wait, and they can't either for the US to get a heart again. Contribute what you can. It all helps.
Beautiful children of God

This is a personal note, to one of the best guys, I have ever had the privilege to get to know. If you can' t help materially in a donation, do this, spread the word and repost! It is the only way we can expand, and get the help these kids in Africa need. My guess after America dumps Trump, a total racist, our people will feel, free and non-threatened and will embrace a new world, that supports people all over the world. My message to Moses, and will give all children a chance, if I could provide an internet connection and teach using Chromebooks to these kids I would. Next stage. "Yes, I had a good day, ran like a race-horse, passed everyone on the 73 toll road, heading to Santa Ana. Sort of a guy, that just goes, all out sometimes, love doing it. Most cars should be warned, of my predilections, that they should have been a truck, or a race car. Have had a wonderful week, so far, teaching art, or math, and am getting control of just the most horrible class ever. And despite the challenges, I am having fun Moses. Mostly, I feel like shit. But, God has always given me reserve, I feel great interacting with students, and helping them learn. Like you, I have students, severely deprived of anyone who cares for them. That is why I support your mission. It can be such a lonely world, but if one person, stands up, and says, I understand, your feelings, I sympathize with you, I will go to bat, for you, then you have a change, due to the love God put in our souls. That is why I believe in God, and certainly in you." Please, repost, I honor all philosophical views on spirituality, as a trained anthropologist. If you can't spend, please spread. Thank you all for your generous contributions. Moses is back, on-line, and doing the miraculous work only someone, like him can do.

Thank you Todd, and as Moses is still in the hospital where his wife and sister are helping take care of him, he informed me that the hospital is out of a prescription medicine that he needs to purchase at another pharmacy. They have also given him a list of items to help him regain his strength for his diet, sounded like certain fruits and such. It would be awesome if those of you who can chip in any amount, could do so now, as I am also sending funds to Moses via W.U. for hospital bills,and etc today, so it arrives more quickly. Please help if you can, this is a true humanitarian and caring individuals who cares so much for the children and others. He needs our help now as well.

I am so very proud of my Spiritual Son Moses Nkangi! He has a heart more precious than gold!! He cannot leave abandoned, homeless children on the streets so, of course, he brings them home with him..... He has been doing this for several years now and his "Family" has grown and grown....... There are, obviously, so many needs!!! I know that anything you can contribute to help Moses help these children, including volunteering there, funds of any amount, items needed for their survival, will be greatly appreciated!!!!! :))
