This year, we would love to provide Christmas food parcels for all our pupils and their families from the Namatala slum, as well as food parcels and a Christmas party (Ebola restrictions allowing) for the pupils at our new nursery in Namalu, Karamoja. Over 650 families would benefit from your kind donations.

Most children attending the Karamoja nursery school will never have had a Christmas, so we want to give them one they won't forget!

All our pupils families are desperately poor, but those in Karamoja are in the poorest and most marginalised tribal group in Uganda, with living standards significantly lower than in other areas of the country. The poverty rate in Karamoja is 66%, more than three times the national poverty rate. Desperation has even forced some of them to eat leaves from the trees to stave their hunger. Our Christmas food parcels will make a massive difference to families facing a worsening malnutrition situation.

Please donate as much or as little as possible; help us make this a special Christmas for the Child of Hope children and their families. All donations are welcome; whatever you can give will be appreciated and will go a long way in helping us make this a special Christmas.

Thank you for being so supportive - and please remember to help us by sharing our appeal! If you would prefer to donate by PayPal via our website, by cheque or by online banking, visit our website www.childofhopeuganda.org/donate

Any amount we receive over our target will provide food for needy children throughout the year.
