Provide disability care and education in Uganda

Ongoing support of the children at St. Jude Home

Our work providing wheelchairs and education for children from St. Jude Children's Home in northern Uganda is going well thanks to your help!

Since our last project report, we have raised another $632 from this Global Giving campaign, which is an enormously significant amount in terms of our abilities to help in Gulu, Uganda.  In particular, new donations are being used to help offset the costs of raising children at St. Jude's on a daily basis.  This includes food, education, health care, and personal support from caring staff members.  Recurring monthly donations have been a particularly valuable way for us to be able to guarantee support of individual children for St. Jude's.

Wheelchairs are currently being purchased for children with special needs from a facility in Gulu.  Although we had every assurance from Whirlwind Wheelchairs that we could buy wheelchairs from them and ship them to Gulu, they never finalized the project, so we are now working with a local distributor in Gulu.  Great for the local economy anyway!  And any replacement parts will be easy to obtain.

Thank you for your continuing support and for being inspired!

Remember to keep track of our progress on facebook and on our website  -- and tell all your friends about the inspiring work that Social Promise is doing!
