With Christmas fast approaching, i just wanted to remind everyone of the Child Headed Household that i help to support through Joy for Children Uganda.

I have opened this STORE to enable me to sell items i create to help me cover the costs of the sponsorship $157US a month, 100% of the profits made on these items are sent directly to Joy for Children and then used to pay for their education, food, kerosene (no elec), clothing, blankets, medical expenses and more.  I currently pay this by my own finances and as a lower income family with 3 children of our own to support we sometimes struggle to make the full amount to send.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could purchase 1 item from our store and help us to help support 5 Children ranging from 8mths to 17yrs in Uganda to have a better life and some hope for the future.

We hear everyday about children who are victims of violence and it is sad to know that today is the same. I was directed to a news report by a friend who works in the area in the report and what i read was saddening and disturbing.  Here is part of the news report:

Nyamyezi and Kaitabigere villages in Nyankwanzi sub-county, Kyenjojo district, after a young man hacked to death five people, including his father and stepmother, on Tuesday evening.  In a gruesome attack, 5 people aged: 75, 35, 35, 16 & 14.

After the murder of the mother and the two oldest sons, the family is now headed by 12-year-old Alex Akampulira. He has to look after his three siblings of nine, six and three years.

The youngest children are in the picture below:

9, 6 and 3 yrs of age, left to be looked after by a 12 yr old.

These children require help to support them through a local non profit in Uganda. you can contact the non profit by emailing me freeuganda@care2.com and i will give further information as i receive it.

This is such a sad story of yet more children being the innocent victims of violence. I hope that you, the world, can open your hearts and help. Full Report Here

Ive recently started sponsoring a Child Headed Household in Uganda.

Betty is 16 and has a 3 month old baby of her own. Both parents are deceased and she is the caregiver for her 3 brother siblings (17) (12) & (11). To help me financially be able to support these children i have/am creating a range of items such as shirts, bags, hats, postcards and stickers to help me fund this. 100% of the profits are sent to support the children through a registered non profit “Joy For Children Uganda”. The funds are used to pay for food, kerosine (they live in a no electricity area), school fee’s, medical care and clothing. Their mother passed away in 2004 from AIDs and their father many years before their mother, however the children do not recall when their father passed. Since 2004 Betty has been the main provider for her brothers.

Your purchase will help me be able to help these 5 children have a chance at a better life. CLICK HERE to go to our store
