Weʼre raising £5,000 to support a small community in Kampala, Uganda
- Kampala, Uganda
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The Choose Love mission.
Many local villages in Uganda can barely survive, let alone drive their community forwards with sustainable practices. They have schools, no books. Wounds, no bandages. Toilets, no water or paper. Nurses, no medicine. Builders, no materials. And saddest of all... children, no family.
Your money will be used to buy and transport more supplies.
To provide the local community with supplies for; schools, medical, clothing, bedding, construction and business. And, encourage sustainability.
The team is lead by Kim Merry of Havering Christian Fellowship (HCF), a UK registered charity. Our team spans ages 16 to 50, all from different backgrounds, with different values... all working towards the common mission of supporting a local community in Uganda.

On the first trip, we spent a large portion of our time supporting the local school mostly in construction and helping the children; building new sections, improving hazardous areas, painting, teaching, playing and providing supplies.
We widened the church community, told our stories, supplied clothing, brought in local homeless, alcoholics and more; many of whom are now living normal, better lives.
