vulnerable households

Just one more?

Would you be willing to add just one more present on to the list of gifts you buy this Christmas to support a widow and her family?

In 2013 we plan to keep doing what we have been doing. However, we’ll also have three profiled programmes. One of these will be the ‘Widows of Bugosa’ initiative. We will work with 40 widows in the village of Bugosa to enable them to support themselves and their families. Noah has been spending time in the village, and also researching the work of other charities in Uganda, to see how best we can do this.

This Christmas, working with Busolwe Pentecostal Church, we would like to connect with these widows and show them that someone cares for them. To do this we would like to give every widow in the village a ‘Christmas Hamper’ so they can cook a special Christmas meal for their family. The ‘hampers’ will cost £10 each and include rice, meat, sugar, bread, onions, tomatoes, soap and paraffin,

Would you be willing to add just one more present onto the list of gifts you buy this Christmas? A gift of £10 would show a widow, and her family, that someone cares, and would bring a little bit of hope.

Also, would you be able to help us promote this idea? Perhaps at your church or school, at a residential care home or community group, if so please contact Hannah.
