Saving Mr Kitanda, our Music Trainer and Cook

Donation protected
URGENCY: medical care for our dear Cook and Music Trainer, Mr Kitanda

Sometimes, it is not just about us, the children of Kamuli Community Brass Band (, but about our supportive community and those who kindly help us:

May we ask to all merciful and caring hearts of our gofundme donors to help us reach, as soon as possible for them, our additional target of 1600 EUR (1700 USD) raised to be able to pay for the hospital bills and special medical care for our beloved and always dedicated cook and music trainer, Mr Kitanda.

Mr Kitanda got badly injured whilst working, by a petroleum lamp flare, and has severe burns covering half of his body. We pray that he may recover soon and come back to our KCBB house to cook again for us, to learn us practice beautiful band music as we used to do with him - all that he diligently did well, for years now.

Could the generous donors specifically support this good endeavor of solidarity and mutual care?

We still need to raise about 1600 euros to reach the forecasted cost of medical bills and medicine purchase for Mr Kitanda.

We want to, again, humbly thank our most regular donors who have done so much for us already: blessings, love and 1000 hugs to you all !
