Whitney to Watoto (Uganda, Africa)

My name is Whitney! I have been accepted to do a three month volunteer stay with Watoto Ministries in Uganda, Africa this upcoming May to August (2013)! I will be working in the Bulrushes Babies Home in Kampala, the countries capital, helping with babies who have been left to die on the side of the road, or have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS.

 

I have a huge heart for missions, and my heart for Uganda grew when a dream became reality... This past May (2012) I went on a Missions trip with my church, Wave Church, to help build a security wall around Watoto's Babies Home in Gulu, Uganda. Since then my heart has desired to go back, and a way has been made possible through my acceptance to volunteer.

 

The money raised will go towards my trip; plane ticket, shots, living, traveling and eating expenses and any other expense regarding this upcoming trip to Africa.

 

I cannot thank you enough in advance, for your parntership to help make part two of a dream to help others a reality. To be a light and encourager across nations... To look after the orphans that God still has a plan and purpose for! Your donation, whatever amount is GREATLY appreciated.
