We finally finished the Uganda page. Being unsatisfied, we are going to turn each area of work into its own page, on a dropdown menu under Uganda. The page as it is now, is really long and exhausting, and we want the reader to have the option to choose to read what they want to read, WHEN they read it and HOW they read and WHERE they read!!!! Youre probably reading this as a blog post at the moment, but this will also be on the “UGANDA” section of our various menus all over the place. Enjoy!
Resurrection of Hope Uganda (ROHU) is a Ugandan NGO (in Uganda, they would technically be known as a “CBO”) whose work involves paying the school fees for families’ little ones, paying the medical fees for people who cannot afford it, and providing basic home needs to single moms, widows, and other struggling families.
This NGO is based in Jinja, Uganda, the source of the Nile River. Jinja has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the world, and is among the poorest and drunkest countries.
People there, like the other desperate nations of the world, struggle to feed their families, pay school and medical fees (one needs to pay the fees for the latter FIRST, to get treatment), and many live on only one meal a day. A common theme is single mothers in the villages raising 5-10 children on their own. There are two villages ROHU primarily works with: Lwanika, in the Mayuge District, and Musima, not far away. Both villages are east of Jinja.
ROHU also hosts a Christmas event every December, where over 1,000 children are fed, and enjoy games, dance, sports, and teaching of the gospel and the things of Jesus Christ. This year, 2020, the event did not happen, due to covid-19 and other things that needed taken care of financially (someone needed medical care to fix a broken leg from a boda accident, and raising the money for that is NOT easy).
As you learn about the various projects and programs we are engaged in, you will see the undertaking. They are good works, but the problem, like with everything else, is money. We have high ambitions, and if the proper funding came through, many many widows and orphans and struggling families can recieve what they need to live comfortably. Please consider donating to Resurrection of Hope Uganda, either one time, or on a recurring monthly cycle. It can be as little as $10 a month, as little goes a LONG way there.
