Let The Rich Enjoy From The Poor

World Vision Uganda is one of the Non government organisation which were introduced in our subcounty to give help to the poor, orphans and all other needy people. The organisation aimed at giving the above people home basin needs like blankets, bedsheets, clothes and others. Unfortunately, people who benefited from this are economically stable group. They distributed all that among them selves and a few among the needy were given. Therefore the aim of the organisation was not achieved.
