Uganda Hands of Action Feeding Program

$8,921 of $8,591 goal

Raised by 139 people in 75 months
My name is Jennifer Anderson and I am a volunteer with Hands of Action Uganda. I have been partnering with Moses Khaukha of Bududa District Uganda to help him to find a way to feed the hungry, severely malnourished children of his village in the mountains of Uganda. Moses has started a program that feeds 370 children a day...this is generally the ONLY meal these children eat. The cost is only 1o cents per child per meal, so $37 will feed the entire group for a day!

I visited his village in Jan 2012 (then again in Jan 2013), where I met and fell in love with these children and with Moses and his family. After my visit, I vowed to work hard to find partners to come along side Moses and his village to provide money to sustain this feeding program until a long term solution is found.

Moses and I along with leaders in his community are working on a way for his village to feed these children without relying on foreign aid and charity, but this will not happen overnight. They are very motivated to become self sufficient, and we have hopes that they will be able to fully take over the expenses of the feeding program within 24-36 months!

NO donation is too small. It all adds up! Please consider giving a one time gift, or even consider partnering with us by pledging a monthly gift. Each month we need to raise $1190 ($1140 food, $50 transfer fees, Gofundme fees and Paypal fees) to feed the kids. IF WE RECEIVE MORE, then the extra goes to the feeding program CHICKEN project..because eventually this village will be able to manage without our assistance if they have resources such as a chicken program!

If you can't give financially, please consider helping us by sharing this with your friends. Please feel free to friend me on Facebook at Jennifer Karina Anderson if you would like to learn more about the work I am doing in Africa.


(Thank you to everyone who is continuing to donate through this page! Each month I will be increasing the total needed by 800 dollars to show what we are lacking for the current month for feeding the children) If you EVER have any questions please contact me! Thank you!

We are still very short for the month :) But I was able to send enough to feed the kids through the end of the coming week. Please consider becoming an ongoing sponsor for a specific child! We have them listed on our www.handsofactioninternational.org website and for just $30 a month (NO ADMIN FEES!) you will literally save the life of a child in our program. Without food, they will starve. Without education, there is little to no hope for their future. Without medical care, deworming, and vitamins they will be sick. You can completely change this, and you can even exchange letters and send a gift once a year with our mission team! Better yet, come with us and meet your child.

Dear Supporters, We are again needing to send our monthly support to keep these little bellies filled. They will run out of food soon, so it is ESSENTIAL that we take a step of faith and give what we can. A little goes a long way, a lot goes even more...give according to what your heart and budget allows. If all goes as planned, we will be able to start offering Auto Giving Withdrawls within a month!! But for this month, please give either through Gofundme or directly to me if you see me. THANK YOU!!!!!

If you usually give monthly and have not given to help feed the kids yet for Sept, will you take a moment now to donate? I would like to send the rest of the months food money tomorrow and would be so happy to include enough to get through the first week of October too. Please know that you are saving the lives of these kids!

What an amazing donation you've received for the treatment of eye disorders and glasses - something close to my heart as my father was an optometrist in South Africa for nearly 50 years. Few low-income countries allocate sufficient funding for eye care and dentistry in their health budgets, and so many people go their whole lives without ever receiving an eye or dental exam. For someone like me, who is severely short sighted, I would be quite disabled without glasses - a problem so easily corrected, and so debilitating when not.

THANK YOU for the $100 donation anonymous! :) We are going to be in need of funding through the end of April...and this will feed the children for a full week!!! WOW. Any size donation is helpful. This month we had another $100 donation as well to buy chickens so that the community can start a chicken farm to feed the kids and to sell the eggs and chicks to buy food. We are on our way to sustainability! Want to provide money for the chicken farm? Just tell me to put it toward that :)
