Child of Hope makes huge social impact for slum children and their families from its school in Eastern Uganda – by providing free education, healthcare, welfare, food and clothing to kids from the poorest and most vulnerable families. Even setting up mums in their own start-up business.It all takes place in the Namatala slum near Mbale, where survivors from years of strife in the north struggle to make ends meet. Up to 30,000 live there, around half of which are school age. But poverty prevents most of them going to school.
We see Bex from the School every year and get an update on the children and various projects. We are so impressed by the work that goes on, the children's progress and the opportunities that have been given to children and families from this desperately poor society. We live in such a different world. We have so much and so we would invite our friends who want to give us a present to celebrate our anniversary to give to Child of Hope. We know the money will be used wisely to benefit the children and that would be the best present we could have.
