Hi! My name is Benjamin Hansen from Norway. I want to tell a story about a young man i know in Uganda.
His name is Innocent, he is 25 years old. He lives in a place called Mukono. Innocent have a big heart and have love for the youngest in his village. He have to travel to the capital and work long days from monday-saturday ta make a living and to help his people. Many of them who lives in his village is very poor, so Innocent have decided to help. He pay school fees for the youngest and give them clothes when he have some exstra money. Sunday is his day of, that day he spend whit the kids and have sundayschool. He teaches them about his faith and he learn them skills. They also take time to play, so they can be kids.
Last time i was in Uganda he tok me to his village and i got the meet the kids (its about 20-30 kids gathering every sunday). That was a life changing experience. They have so little but give so much.
Innocent showe me around the village and we came to a small brickhouse, it was just walls and a roof. He told me he got a piece of land from his father and started to build him self a house, but when he saw the need in the village he decided to donate the land and house to have a place for the kids. But all his money goes to survive and to pay fees. So the house was just standing there and was half finish.
That day i decided to help him. We bougth a door and windows and started to dig so we could finish the floor.
This was just a few days before i had to travel home. I wanted to do moore, but dident have time.
When i was home i started to do some fundraising on Facebook, family and friends started to give money and now the house is usable. But stil its things we nee to do. The house need paint, equipment for learning (books, pencils, computers, clothes, etc). And outside the house we want to make a play area, like a kindergarden. The house will be used for learning, playing and a place to have shelter when its rainseason.
I can guarantee that all the money from doantions will go directly to the project and its noonprofit. You can also visit the project at Facebook (Patmos Outreach Ministries)
I hope you will joine us to give this kids a better chance in life!
