#GivingTuesday is just a few short weeks away. This is historically an important day for our organization, providing much needed support that drives real impact. As we prepare, we have a number of impact stories trickling in from our partners.
We can't keep these secret much longer! We thought we'd give you a sneak peek.
Our partners at Ekisa Ministries provided an update on how their programs have helped this year. Alyssa McIntyre writes:
We have 16 children living in our children's home. They all have unique stories, but each one lives with a variety of disabilities and has overcome trauma to be where they are now. Many of our children have been abandoned or abused in the past.
Our children are amazing! So many of them find joy in the simplest thing, like blowing bubbles, being tickled, or drinking hot chocolate. Their personalities vary, but each one is special and loved.
12 out of 16 of our children require diapers. Jake's has provided approximately 50 diapers this past year, ensuring that our children are not without.
Diapers are expensive and often hard to find in Uganda, especially for older children. Jake's help has allowed us to spend money on other important things. Our kids are much happier and healthier when they have clean, functioning diapers to rely on. Opening a box of diapers from Jake's feels like opening presents on Christmas. It's a relief to know that something so important is taken care of. We are extremely grateful for Jake's help!
