I am so excited to inform you that Helping Hands Uganda-Canada Aid is up and running… Ye.. .eeh! It was in 2015, when I personally visited the families of the children we had been sponsoring for 8 years and sadly broke the news to them that we were winding down.
It was so difficult explaining to them, why we were closing down and at the same time, encouraging them to “hang in there”. However, I did promise them one thing, that we would come back at some point and that we would priotize them before considering any other children.
By God’s grace, that promise has come true!
Recently, my sister Margie went back to the same families, one by one, and advised them that we were re-vamping Helping Hands Uganda-Canada and we were there to pick up from where we had left off.
What an exciting moment. …..
We have been able to reconnect with some of the children, are still looking for more and a few are lost to follow up.
We have a strong believe in our work and efforts, and we are hopeful that everything will unfold as planned
