Fred's children with Grasroots Uganda volunteer
As many of you know, Fred, our previous partner with Peace Demonstration Farm passed away in March, leaving behind four children. Their mother passed away four years prior. The children are remaining in their home attatched to the farm with a care-giver, and we continue to monitor and support them.
Fred and his children have been working beside us, digging, carrying bricks, planting seeds, chasing snakes, watching me being stung by angry wasps (repeatedly)(and not to be confused with the angry bees), frolicking in fish ponds, digging the well, and everything in between since we started the farm nearly five years ago. His family is our family, and we are currently setting up a benefit project for them on Global Giving to help cater for their school fees, medical costs, and other every day costs of living.
We currently have a micro-project listed under ' Water System for Peace Demonstration Farm, Uganda' which is a short term project. We intend to elevate this into its own secular project. We will of course keep you posted on these developments.
Thank you again for your continued support. It means the world to all of us here at Grasroots Uganda.
