For Widows and Orphans in Uganda

$7,155 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 37 people in 7 months
Will you help me go to Uganda for the widows and orphans?

My heart was awakened to the plight of the women and children of Uganda when I heard their story through the traveling Watoto Children's Choir when I was in Raleigh, North Carolina. Nearly ten years later, I saw them again in Sydney, Australia. Like before, they sang with life, full of energy, zeal and hope. Lives that have risen from the ashes. I want to help many like them to rise.

I am a widow. I raised three young children ages 3, 5 and 8, who are now adults. I know what it's like to be both mother and father, friend and disciplinarian, teacher and coach, breadwinner and wound-dresser.

So it is not a surprise that I have a soft heart for widows and orphans.

I am going to Uganda in September to join a Watoto medical mission to provide medical care for widows and orphans and the surrounding communities. I'm not a doctor but I am a good leader and housekeeper. I can inspire and motivate, plan and organise. I can 'roll up my sleeves' to ease the burden on medical staff. I can encourage and pray.

You can be part of this mission. I am raising $7,500, with $5,000 going to the medical mission and $2,500 towards partially funding my travel expenses. (I am also contributing $2,500 for my travel expenses.)

Every contribution is valued.  May you be generous according to the measure you've been blessed.

Hello everyone! The experience in Uganda was beautiful but unsettling. It has taken me time to ponder what to share with you. This first e-card is my way of sharing the whole trip in pictures.

I am leaving for Uganda soon. Thank you for supporting and encouraging me. My friends at work are also finalising their campaign selling reuseable bags to support this mission trip. There is still time to share with your community and contribute. Looking forward to sharing the experience via the e-book I am going to write.

My friends at work continue to raise funds for my trip to Uganda to help widows and orphans through the Watoto charity. In addition to the potluck lunch, they're also selling re-useable bags in all sorts of colours and fancy shapes!
