Hey all!


I hope that all is well as you prepare for summer vacation. The rainy season in Uganda just ended, the roads in the rural villages are passable, malaria is in full-swing, and we would like to conduct one more distribution before the children leave for the summer.  Francis, the Ugandan volunteer who oversees the 52 schools where we distribute has asked if we could give to: Diima Primary School (total population 1,286), Nanda Primary School (total Population 1,079)  and Yabwengi Primary School (total Population 1,022) for a total of 3387 children. The total cost of this distribution is $13,427. We have made about $3,000 since our initial request.  We greatly appreciate all who have so generously contributed.  We are still about $7427 short.

Francis and his students are waiting to hear from us.  This would be the first time we would have to say "no" to Francis and his students in Uganda. If you have any funds to contribute-- ideas or suggestions of ways to fundraise, we would greatly appreciate them. We are selling jewelry: http://www.networkagainstmalaria.org/#!shop-now/c24ib and dolls: http://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/gifts-for-good/detail.html?projectGift.id=139
 
No amount is too small.  Every bit helps!
 
Thanks for all of the work that you do.  I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Sincerely,

Margaret
