Dear Friends and Family,


After fighting bravely for her life at Bridgepoint Hospital National Harbour in Washington, DC USA our dear mother, Mrs Roseline Bwaku has passed on to glory. She remained strong for over 5 months following a brain aneurysm of which three and a half months were spent in a coma. 


Our loving, warm-hearted and gallant mother was better known as ‘Mukwano gwa abaana’ or 'Friend of children' because of the lives of less privileged children that she touched. She just couldn’t give up on the many children she embraced and helped raise up including her own. That is why she hung on for as many months as she could. We, her children, are now working round the clock to have our dear mother's remains flown back home to be laid to rest and have a final send off in Busia, Uganda.


We are deeply touched by the messages of sympathy and glowing tributes from so many people around the world. 


Right now, we need your help to cover the repatriation costs to make sure that Roseline is buried in the presence of her family and loved ones, who last saw her in 1995.  


We will be grateful for your support in getting Mum back home.


Thank you all and please remember never be too busy for family as you never know when the last time you talk with them will be.

With sincere thanks from Roseline's children,

Esther

Hello everyone.

Wow. Where to start..

Thank you so much to everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing support and generosity you have blessed our family with in the last many days.

We have been able to cover the costs of a casket, services for the preparation of our mother's repatriation home and are now working on getting her remains flown home by Friday of this week.

It is beautiful how people can come together in times of need and sorrow.

Please accept our sincerest thanks and best wishes to you all.

In this last stage we kindly ask for your support one more time so we can finish the final arrangements and celebrate the life of our dear mother.

If you have already given, thank you so much! If not please make a contribution now if you are able and share, share with others.

Be happy, healthy and always remember to make time for the ones you love.

With love and overwhelming gratitude,

The children of Roseline Bwaku,
