In 2013 when I was in Uganda at various schools and orphanages doing sustainability projects, I met Kiiza George, he was my driver.
He drove our team to different locations and helped us to be successful in our work. In getting to know him, even staying in his home, I learned that he was driving tourists and volunteers as a source of income to support the vulnerable orphans and children that he and his wife, Margret, cared for in their own home. It was a small rented home with many children.
Through a GoFundMe fundraiser and many generous friends, we were able to build a safe home and school for the children. The home housed George and his family as well as 30+ vulnerable children, who were unable to be cared for elsewhere for various reasons.
When the pandemic situation began, we were forced to take the children to various separate homes, where we still continue to support their well-being.
One of our greatest needs is a better car for George as the one he has is not great, and its really not ideal for his driving business, we also need a good reliable car for him, in case of emergencies with the children.
George lost most of his opportunities for work throughout this pandemic and we are still waiting to be able to receive the children back into Gm Childrens Home.
We aim to make George's income more sustainable at this time, to support his family and also our children who we hope to receive back in our home as soon as it's possible.
Donations in any amount are very appreciated and we ask that you please keep our children and our ministry in your prayers
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP and GOD BLESS YOU
