Our family are members of the Petrie Catholic Community on the north side of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
We first visited Uganda in 2008 and then again in 2010, 2012 and 2015. After returning in 2010 we decided to do something as a family to help poor children who could not afford an education. While some of our friends in Masaka, Uganda, are poor by western standards they have an incredible faith and love of life.
They are hopeful and cheerful regardless of their circumstances. Some of them are nurses, teachers, farmers, tradesmen, business people and unemployed. Some exist on $1 a day.
A donation of $5 per fortnight is enough to pay school fees,
provide lunch at school and a new uniform every year.
This is a public fundraising program and you have been made aware of the plight of these children in the hope that you might consider giving them a helping hand.
Uganda Kids is a registered Public Benevolent institution with the ACNC and a Deductible Gift Recipient approved by the Australian Taxation Office.
