From WAKATE: Hello brother/sister,
We are an orphanage in Uganda that helps around 40 kids. I alone run the place, after my mom passed away and have been hard to cover basic expenses for food, rent, and medication. I am here to ask for your support with donations or at least following my page and publishing information about Sunshine Kids on your profile. For more info on other ways to help, please talk to our team here or at [email redacted] . May you be blessed. - Wakate Asuman
From the ORGANIZER : Sunshine Kids (SK) is an orphanage ran by Wakate Usaman and a caretaker named "Dada" who has been caring for 40 orphans in Bugiri,Uganda. Being 3.5 hours away from the main city, everyday resources have become an everyday challenge.
The funds are used for daily needs including food, shelter, clothes, and occasionally, new shoes and mattresses. Some hardships SK faced include the COVID-19 crisis, natural disasters and flooding from storms, and a dysfunctional water well which is the main water supply. These hardships have led to Wakate and Dada being behind on rent, an insufficient amount of food and rice, and late payments towards school fees.
With your help, we will be able to supply 40 orphans with adequate food and water, weather-appropriate clothing, catch up on rent, and meet their basic needs. Our long-term plan is to obtain our land to build a shelter so that we do not have to rely on renting. Currently, we do NOT have a system in place and would love for more volunteers to help make this mission come alive.
Here is a breakdown of our monthly expenses in USD :
Rent : $140
Food : $200
Rice : $150
Clothing/School Fees/ Etc : $250
Medication : $200
Some help we need includes a campaign manager, social media manager, website manager, and fundraiser planner. Visit Sunshine Kids Instagram
