It's that time of year again - the excitement is growing, the children are preparing their party dances, the cooks are fattening up the turkeys and goats, the dignitaries finalising their speeches the COH Christmas party is nearly upon us!
Every year we aim to bring a little Christmas joy to the whole community surrounding Child of Hope, including our students and their siblings, parents, invited guests and community leaders - after all, it would be unfair to keep all the fun to ourselves!
Could you donate to help us put on the party? It would help to provide food, drink, a present for the children and a fantastic party for around 1,300 people who live in one of the poorest places on Earth. This will be the best meal they have all year for some of them it may be the first proper meal they have had since the last Christmas party. We can only do this thanks to your generosity, so a huge Thank you for any amount you are able to donate.
Thanks to kind donations throughout the year, Child of Hope is able to provide education, health, welfare, love and care to children who would otherwise be forgotten in Namatala slum in Uganda. The positive influence on the whole area is huge, as we work hard alongside the community to help overcome poverty.
