Feeling secure in your environment and having hope for a better life is the basic human need and must be fulfilled before any other need. There are different kinds of securities people can have but for the vulnerable children, they mainly need the physical and emotional security to have their hope for life renewed every day. Being free from suffering physical harm and having enough food and water to keep you alive are some of the physical securities. Access to psychosocial support through different activities like birthday celebrations, counseling sessions, and other activities provides emotional security. With the mission of bringing to vulnerable children in Uganda, Another Hope Children’s Ministries provides accommodation, food, clothing, and medical care to those children that need it due to various issues such as abandonment. Availing all these needs helps to keep the hope of the children on the sponsorship program new. The special days celebrated like Easter and Eid day where the children are fed on special meals make them feel loved. There are rescue cases handled by children who were abandoned by their parents and families and got enrolled through the police. These children are provided with shelter and other needs of life which makes them feel secure and have their hope renewed. The total number of accommodated children is twenty-six (11 males and 10 females), these children are able to receive physical, spiritual, and emotional security. Rescue Case handled. The young boy enjoying a special meal at Another Hope Children’s Ministries. A boy who was referred to Another Hope Children’s Ministries by Nansana police station was abandoned by his mother at a friend’s place of residence. The mother of this young boy who was nine months went to stay with a friend after separating from the father to her son. She stayed with her for two weeks and one morning, she went out giving an excuse for going to buy milk for her son but she never returned. The child remained in the custody of her friend who reported to the police and handed over the child because she couldn’t afford to take care of him. The police through the child and family protection unity and the office of the probation officer contacted Another Hope Children’s Ministries Management to rescue this child. The child has been under our custody for one and a half years but he is happy and healthy because of the love and support that sponsorship brings.
