SPONSOR A FAMILY
Each month, our liaisons in Africa identify new families who desperately need assistance. While we use donations to assist all families, your sponsorship goes directly to the family(ies) of your choice. Please note, all families are available for sponsorship. Read below to find one that touches your heart and moves you to sponsor.
Akia Monday is a twenty-year-old young mother to four school age children. She lives with her husband and kids in a grass thatched hut in Kidongole municipality of Bukedea District in Uganda.
Teen pregnancies led her to having four kids between ages of four and nine years early on in life. She works as a peasant farmer tending to the family's farmland, planting and growing crops. Her husband suffers from knee problems and has a metal implant in his hip joint.
Namakoye Irene lives in the town of Kajjansi in Central Uganda. She is a 26-year-old divorced mother of two young children.
She is the sole breadwinner for her family. Due to a lack of basic education, she had difficulties finding employment. After a bitter divorce with her husband, she took up a job as a cleaner to support her family. Her job as a cleaner is not permanent and doesn’t pay her consistently.
Margret Bulya Mukisa
Margret Bulya Mukisa is a 41-year-old divorced mother of three school age children. She lives in Uganda.
Margret has faced her share of life’s struggles. She lost one of her babies in childbirth due to negligence and inadequate medical care during delivery. To make matters worse, her husband cheated on her with other women while being married to her. He left her when she was pregnant with their third child. She was left to fend for herself and their kids.
My name is Musengimana Farida. I am a 49-year-old divorced mother of seven school-age children. I live with my kids in a single room on rent. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure due to chronic depression.
I am not very educated and don’t have a stable job. To make money for daily expenses to support my family, I launder dirty clothes for people in the village. It is difficult to make ends meet, and I have trouble raising money to pay for my kids' tuition as well as other home and medical bills.
Namutebi Ramlah is a 30-year-old single mother. She lives in the village of Nabuti with her four children in a small one-room rental place. She doesn’t have a job and is currently not eligible to get financial aid from the government.
All four of her children, the oldest of whom is 16 years old, are in school. She has a difficult life and struggles to raise money for her children's education. Her children frequently miss school and are not able to attend due to unpaid school fees.
My name is Kisembo Josephine. I am an 83-year-old widowed grandmother living with my 17-year-old granddaughter. I have faced many hardships in my life. My husband and my six biological children passed away from a variety of causes.
Their deaths have left me weak mentally and physically. I suffer from depression and other age-related illnesses like high blood pressure, poor vision, backache, and persistent abdominal pain.
I am Asonya Joseph . I am a 78 year old man. I live in Kidongole village, Eastern Bukedea, Uganda with my wife and 13 children. My story is not like any story, it is a story of grief and deprivation.
In my 78 years I have been a witness to the ups and downs of life. Loss of beloved ones is grieving, but the hardest is to keep the rest of your family alive in hard conditions for survival. When my first wife passed away many years ago, I remarried and brought a new woman home to share my responsibilities.
Please read about how donations have improved the lives of families in need.
In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide.
Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves.
Don’t be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too.
