This project provides mattresses for children and families in rural areas of Uganda. 60 Children will have somewhere to sleep for the first time. In rural Uganda, the families have been improvising by filling a sack with grass or old rugged clothes to make it some how comfortable to sleep on. Last Summer Global giving donors helped 50 Children get mattresses and blankets.
50% of the children in the community suffer from skin complications like ring worms, even after applying creams, they still re occur, this is as a result of sleeping in grass improvised sack mattress that comes along with insects and other related bacteria, this alone causes dis comfort, financial loss and non concentration in class
This project buys a good quality mattress for a child having a poor sleeping condition, this will enable them concentrate in school as well as reduce skin related complications
The high quality mattress lasts longer than a low quality one, it means that a child will have some where to sleep for over ten years
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Build a Home for 50 Orphans in Uganda. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
