Dear Supporter,

Back in March this year, we were challenged with raising enough funds to build a new 132 foot long security wall to keep 47 children at the Children's Home in Uganda safe.  We were totally amazed and so grateful that this target was reached, and in April work commenced.

With an estimated build time of 5 to 6 weeks, we were hopeful that the work would be completed on time, and but for a few little challenges, everything was completed, enabling us to keep the children safe and secure, but we couldn't have done it without you - THANK YOU!

The Children's Home in Namugongo, Uganda is a place of refuge for many of the children who stay there.  Some have been abandoned, some rescued from terrible situations, some have been trafficked and now need a safe place to stay while their family members are traced, and some have been lost and need somewhere to stay while their parents search for them.

Whilst in the care of the home they are cared for very well, with their basic needs being met - they are fed, loved, are able to play with new friends, and receive any medical care they need.  Their most important need during this time is safety, and this is why the new security wall was so important.  Children flourish in a safe and loving environment, and so whether the children are at the home for a few days, a few months or longer, we ensure that they receive all the care and attention that they need, in a safe and loving environment.

Since work started building the wall, they have received another 12 children, and have resettled or reunified 10 children with family members, so already the security wall has kept 59 children safe!

On behalf of the Trustees of Ty Cariad Africa, the staff at the Children's home in Uganda, and the children at the Home, thank you once again - your donation has made a great impact in 59 children's lives already and will continue to make an impact for many years to come!

We are delighted to inform you that work has started on the construction of the new security wall at the Children's Home, work that wouldn't have been able to start without your help.

I will send another report when the work is complete, but just wanted to let you know how your donation has enabled us to start the construction, and that it will help keep the children at the Children's Home safe and secure, THANK YOU!!

Here are some photos of progress so far.  All the work is done by hand - no diggers - and the only machinery used is the one which makes the interlocking blocks.

We have been delighted with the tremendous start to the campaign, but the security wall will only provide safety and security if it is completed, so if you can share this webpage with your friends and colleagues, we would really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for your interest, your support, and advocating for the safety of these children. We (and the children and staff in Namugongo) really appreciate it!
