19 May Sister Beatrice Missionary home
Nelson Mandel once said; History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children. – Children are the worlds most valuable resource and it’s the best hope for the future, this is why my heart aches when I heard about the abandoned children and orphans in a remote township of Uganda.
A village called Masaka is where Mrs. Beatrice Nakibuule kankobe had collected these poor kids in her missionary home. She had single-handedly built more rooms in her initial small family house (turned orphanage home) to be able to accommodate all of these children. Eight (8) or more of them sleep in one room, clothing, feeding, medication, sleeping mattresses are inadequate and nothing is ever enough.
She had enrolled a few of the kids in a nearby village school and they all have dropped out due to financial challenges of paying their tuition fees. Even feeding plates are less so they all fed at a time in huge cooking pots. As an individual, I believe we cannot turn our back while the children live in abject poverty. No child should go to sleep without supper.
Paradise.planetearth journeyed to Uganda for just one course and that’s to visit the children of this orphanage, we donated: Medicines, Shoes, Clothes, Books, Toys, Foodstuffs, and Candies… Many thanks to our special friends and donors: Ms. Kareena and Mr. Peter Ademowo.
