Our Own Building Fund

( My incredible mission trip to  Uganda, Africa)
     
     My name is DeCarmen, I  along with Patrica Redix, Linda Redix and Destynee Foreman started a Children's Home project in 2011 in Uganda, Africa.  After our inital mission trip to Uganda, Africa, we saw a need in Uganda. 75 children had lost their homes due to mudslides and landslides in Budduda, Uganda, Africa. The Ugandans live at the bottom of the mountain. They build their homes and farms on the slope of the mountain. However, when it rains during the monsoon season, mudslides occur and cause mud to cover the entire village. Homes are lost and many people die. In 2012 one of the largest mudslides destroyed the village, which resulted in over 300 missing people.

     When we found the children many were in bad condition.... The children were placed in a facility where they were wasting away. The children were lucky to recieve one meal a day.  I witnessed one of the kids pass out due to heat stroke simply because they did not have running water.  The conditions, were horrible. We brought supplies, but it was only enough to sustain the kids for about a week. After our time in Africa, we heard that a few of the kids we met had died due to starvation, suicide and lack of medication. (Our first year we were able to take in 13 children.)
     We started taking in children who were victims of the mudslides in 2012. However, over the years we were only able to address the needs of 16 children. There are many more left without a home. It is hard to support a full-functioning home without enough funding. We are currently renting, but the building is small and very costly. The government  is pushing us to get our own land and building, otherwise we risk getting shut down. They want to know we are serious about providing for our children.
  Our goal for this year is to get 1000 people to give a one time donation of $29.00 in 2017! If we get 1000 people to give $29.00 each by the end of the year we will have reached our goal!  We are using 15,000 to aquire land, purchase materials, and hire construction workers. The remaining 14,000 will go towards the operational cost of the home, bunkbeds, bedding, food, medicine and the educational costs for 60 children. This will also allow us to hire on additional staff and create jobs for the locals within the community. Please help us reach our goal! Support our orphans with your donation.
