the Global Covid19 pandemic has spread around the globe, some countries have been better equipped to handle the situation than others; Uganda is the 3rd poorest country in the world & is currently on the verge of humanitarian crisis. Lockdown caused chaos, the effects are still being felt, food supplies are unstable & infections for Covid are being recorded, including 20 in the local jail. The Rubanda district of Uganda vis located in the South Western highlands of the country and contains the Smiling Hearts Children Home https://www.facebook.com/Smiling-hearts-childrens-home-farm-Uganda-336857720296333
& Heal Medical Centre https://www.facebook.com/HEAL-Medical-Centre-Rubanda-1786674571620838
We first came into contact with Ronald https://www.facebook.com/niwagaba.ronald.923 , director of Smiling Hearts before the pandemic, at first we were sceptical about his authenticity, but since then he has officially registered as an NGO & his effort and dedication to the orphan children has stole our hearts,
many times during the Covid lockdown and since he has been in the heart breaking situation where he can not afford food for the children, we want to support him with this appeal. He currently cares for 72 children between 3 and 11& besides food, shelter & care he endeavours to provide them with a academic education.
Through Ronald we also became aware of the Heal Medical Centre, through our conversations with them we realised the scale of the crisis Covid has brought to their limited infrastructure.
All money raised goes directly to these causes
