It’s yet again coming up to Christmas time and there are over 1 billion people in the world starving this Christmas. Why not use your money for good and change and sponsor a child for someone you love for christmas this year, or even for yourself!

A most rewarding way to spend $25 – $50 dollars a month is to help those who are the innocents in all this chaos in the world….the children.

JOY FOR CHILDREN UGANDA is a great NGO whom are locally run in Uganda and you can sponsor a child direct through them (please note, this is NOT tax deductable for Australian Citizens)

COMPASSION AUSTRALIA is another great Australian Based NGO who sponsor children. Your money actually gets to the child you sponsor and not the whole community.

If you do anything this Christmas “Just for the sake of it” – Sponsor a Child and the gift of love you will receive is priceless.

URGENT APPEAL LAUNCHED FOR HAITI CRISIS

Compassion Australia has launched an urgent appeal for the children of Haiti after the recent devastating earthquake. Compassion has more than 64,000 children supported in the country, including more than 4,600 sponsored by Australians.

* DONATE NOW

The organisation has committed 100 per cent of funds raised through the Haiti Earthquake Disaster Appeal to the people of Haiti. Compassion is not withholding ANY funds for administration purposes.

Compassion CEO Paul O’Rourke said the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated the country of Haiti this morning was cause for grave concern for the thousands of Compassion assisted children in the region.

He said the organisation had already mobilised an emergency response team from Miami that will fly to the Dominican Republic and bus into the capital of Port-au-Prince, as the airport has been closed.

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
