Beds for Orphans in Kampala, Uganda

We are raising funds to get triple decker bunk beds, mattresses, sheets, pillows, and blankets for 24 orphans and their two caregivers at this small orphan house in Kampala. At present, these children sleep on the tile floor or old mats. They have just recently moved into a home with running water and electricity, but many of these kids were found in trash bins and unimaginable conditions as \'throw away\' kids. Their caregivers are dedicated to giving these kids a better life and make great sacrifices to do so, but their need is still very great. When I think of my own kids, it\'s difficult to imagine them having to sleep on a cold tile floor without any comfort. It takes about $120 to get each child a bed: bunk in three-level bed ($40), mattress ($40), 2 sets of sheets ($20), pillow ($10), and blanket ($10). Any amount is welcome and will truly make a difference! It\'s my dream that we can give these kids the first beds they\'ve ever slept in. (Any donations that make it over our goal will be added to the orphanage food fund.) Thank you for considering this need"”and for sharing it.
