Meet Isaac, the founder of Expect for Happiness International: an orphanage in Eastern Uganda that is responsible for taking care of over 32 kids who have been abandoned or lost their parents at an early
Isaac who is 25 now began this mission two years ago and has been providing food, shelter and other necessities for them. I first had the pleasure of meeting Isaac this past week after he reached out for aid. Due to the pandemic it has become a struggle for him to continue to provide for the children decent food, water, and shelter. Currently the children are surviving eating raw jackfruit due to a lack of resources and aid.
It broke my heart hearing Isaac’s story and the fact that I am not financially well to do anything to help him really bothered me. Before I told him that I couldn’t help him something told me that his story needed to be shared with the world. So I suggested that he make a gofundme. After learning that GoFundMe isn’t supported in Uganda I agreed to make it under one condition. That he could send me a picture of the kids holding a sign that has the Scripture Psalm 23 - 28 written on it just to make sure that the pictures of the children that he was sending me over Instagram were genuine. He agreed and sent me the picture as promised. I was even able to speak to him over the phone and had the opportunity to see and hear the kids.
I’m really praying for Isaac, I know that scams are common on the internet, but I genuinely believe in Isaac and his mission and pray that his goal is reached. He is only asking for $5000 dollars in aid so that he can pay for better quality food, clothing, mattresses, a watering hole, and other bills that need to be taken care of so he can keep the orphanage alive. I’ve doubled the goal of the fundraiser to $10000 just to make sure that Isaac has more than enough aid tocare for the children. Once the goal is reached I am going to send all of the proceeds to Isaac and the children. Every donation helps to reach our goal. If 5,000 people were to donate a dollar we would reach our goal expeditiously. Anything helps, if you would like to send direct aid to the organization I do not mind getting youin touch with Expect for Happiness International.

with that said I’d like to share a personal message from Isaac to the world:
Thankyou so much for your help and God Bless you!
