This Christmas, will you help us bring hope to vulnerable families in Butaleja? Our team on the ground work directly with many families on a daily basis and have pulled together a list of items that, however mundane and unglamorous they seem to us, will have a life-changing impact on widows, children and families for years to come.
Here are some ways you can get involved:
1) Buy some gifts (for someone else or yourself!) Have a look through the items, and give through our fundraising page. If you would like a gift certificate, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Share our appeal with friends, family, your church, or colleagues and encourage them to get involved. (If you would like a copy of our catalogue in a presentation format to show your church, home group, housemates or anyone else, please get in touch and we’d be happy to make that available for you.)
3) Be a team. Could you buy a gift as a family? Could you club together with friends to buy a latrine? Instead of the dreaded office secret santa, why not collectively buy a latrine for a family without a toilet? Challenge your church to give a widow a brand new home for Christmas. It might be the start of an eye-opening and life-transforming relationship, for them, and you.
Look out for posts over the next few weeks where we’ll be sharing stories from those your gifts will help.
[Please don’t be confined by the amounts we have suggested. Any contribution will be gratefully received]
