14 More Albino Children Saved from Traffickers

Humanity Healing International’s Albino Rescue program has grown.  From the original 10 children rescued from traffickers in December 2013, the program has grown to 29 children.

While any form of human trafficking is horrendous, the trafficking of children with albinism in Uganda and other regions of Africa is even more terrible as albinos are hunted for their body parts for use in “magic” rituals.

HHI Country Director, and Founder of SCOSP Uganda, Michael Sabiiti, received word of four children who had fled to the bush ahead of human traffickers and lead a team into the bush to look for them.  Remarkably, Michael and his team were able to find 14 children at risk and bring them to safety.

Several of the children needed medical attention and all have now been placed in safe homes and those of school age are now in safe schools.

HHI is in process of updating the profiles of the children in the program on its website, http://humanityhealing.org.  We will send word when this is up.

Bless you for your Compassion in connecting with these children and thank you for helping us to help these children through your generous donations to the program.

Short Term Success with Long Term Hopes

It has been three months since Humanity Healing International launched the Albino Rescue project and it has grown.  We have added 5 more children to the project and the 14 school age children are all happily attending classes in safe environments.

The 15th child is a 3-month old baby, Evelyn, whose 18 year old mother, Florence, was driven from her home for birthing an albino child.  They needed immediate treatment at a medical center, but are now healthy, safe and happy.  Three of the other children, Annette, Brian and Mary, also needed medical attention, which your generous donations made possible.

For many, getting an education in Uganda is not free. If a child cannot afford a uniform, tuition, school supplies, or accommodation; classroom doors are often slammed in their face.  Even the smallest requirement, such as the ability to purchase a pencil or a book, prevents children from going to school in Uganda every day. 

These challenges are worse still for a child with albinism, because they bear the added burdens of fear and discrimination. 

13 of our 14 albino children in school are sitting their first term exams and each child has pens, erasers, and pencils in their hand because of your donations.  Thank you.

Please consider a $30 reoccurring monthly donation to fully sponsor a child staying in school.

Our oldest child, Annette, has resumed her studies at the University for a Bachelor of Public Administration and Management, and she wants to use her skills after graduation to save other children living with albinism from systemic deprivation, stigmatization and fear. 

What we have found is that the children we are currently helping are just the tip of the iceberg.  We have touched on an entire sub-culture that lives in fear and discrimination because of their albinism.  Our intention is, with your support, to grow this program to provide a safe secure environment for children with albinism to gain the education they need to overturn the current cultural view through their own example.

Our sincere Gratitude for your continuing support!

Transforming Our Project

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your support for our Pads for Schoolgirls Project - the Keep 1000 Ugandan Girls in School Project here on GlobalGiving.  We have successfully been able create an impact for many girls by providing the tools and the training to learn the skills needed to fabricate their own reuseable pads to allow them not only to stay in school during their periods, but also to help other girls stay in school.

We have learned quite a bit with this project.  One of the more important lessons is that we can make a bigger impact by breaking this project down into modules of 1 instructor, 5 sewing machines and material, and connect with a larger number of schools to place the modules.  Please keep an eye out for us here on GlobalGiving when we add these mini-projects.

I would also like to share with you our latest project here on GlobalGiving, which deals with the horrendous reality of many albino children in Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania, where ritualistic sacrifice of albinos is still a reality.  We were able to save 10 albino children from traffickers and are working to relocate them to safe areas and schools in a different region of Uganda.  If you can, please help us to help them.  The new project can be found at: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/help-10-albino-children-saved-from-sacrifice/

Thank you again for your generous support of our projects here on GlobalGiving.  The Humanity Healing Team sends you our Blessings for a New Year of Health, Happiness and Prosperity!

Sincerely,

Christopher Buck
