Because we believe every life matters, we give a child shelter in times of need even when our resources are limited. Most times we find ourselves with abandoned children that we hadn’t planned for in our custody, because protection of children from worst forms of abuse is our core value at Another Hope Children’s Ministries. Whenever we are called upon by government officials, we respond positively in such instances. We take them into temporary custody as we search for their parents/relatives. From January to May 2021 we registered six (2 boys and 4 girls) .So far efforts to locate their families have been fruitless. The children are between 2 to 17 years old. Different circumstances forced these children into the children’s home. Some of the reasons why children end up in children’s homes are security, child labor rescue, abandonment (most common), disagreements between parents, and getting lost. Because of the sponsorship that provides another hope project a 2 year old boy who had been abandoned by his mum was enrolled onto Another Hope Children’s support. This young boy was abandoned by the mother at a friend’s home when he was only about 10months old. A friend to this boy’s biological mother reported it. She said the mother told her she was going to the shop to buy some milk for the baby but she never came back. Through the PSWO of Nansana, this child was referred to us, and we kept him. . Now he has grown into a healthy boy and has learnt how to speak. The availability of other young ones has made it possible for him to catch up as he plays and associates with them. We believe he will be able to join school when the kindergartens open. • In another situation, we received an 11 year old girl in April. She was recorded as a missing child, in a town called Naluvuule in Wakiso District. She says she was leaving with her uncle and always inside the fenced compound and when she went out to move around, she got lost and didn’t know the name of the village. She was brought to the police by an old woman, and then was referred to Another Hope Children’s Ministries. We are still keeping her as we look for her family. So far she has been a good child, and we have hopes of finding her family to resettle her. Thanks so much for your support towards sponsorship that provides another hope. So much has been achieved. Without your support, many children would fail to have a place to stay, to eat, and to get medical care.
