“Where else in the world have there been 20,000 kidnapped children? Where else in the world have 90 percent of the population in large districts been displaced? Where else in the world do children make up 80 percent of the terrorist insurgency movement?...For me the situation is a moral outrage….We hope, on the humanitarian side, that we’re now seeing a beginning of an end to this endless litany of horrors, where the children are the fighters and the victims in northern Uganda…."
- Jan Egeland, UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator (United Nations News Centre, “UN relief official spotlights world’s largest neglected criticism in northern Uganda” 21 October 2004).
What is PAORINHER?
Against the background highlighted above, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART), a UK charity founded by Baroness Cox, in collaboration with the local people and myself, a UK based Ugandan, established a community-based organisation in October 2007 known as Patongo Orphan Infants Health Rehabilitation (PAORINHER). The centre was set up to provide residential care, psycho-social support, counselling, food, accommodation, medication for orphaned children between 0-6 years, who were found to be dying in their thousands as a result of the war, poverty and neglect.
The war left behind thousands of vulnerable orphan children and our focus is even more on the HIV + children and their affected families. This poor and neglected community need your help to address the high level of malnutrition and opportunistic infections and secure long-term food security and future well-being.
What your donations will be used for
We require your financial support now to train the community in best farming practices, provide necessary farming tools, seeds and food security crops and build food storages.
Acquisition of a good reconditioned second-hand tractor would produce enough food for the hundreds of HIV+ orphan vulnerable children attending nursery and primary education and produce some excess towards sustainability of the children centre.
Please give generously now to my JustGiving page or by contacting HART and save the lives of these lovely children who not only have the courage to survive but a huge potential to make significant contributions in re-building their shattered communities and ability to become future leaders, doctors, teachers, nutritionists, pilots, engineers, human right activists, journalists, peacemakers. Thank you very much for your kind attention and life-saving support.
