Christmas Gift Project- January Update
JANUARY UPDATE:The children we serve were incredibly blessed by the Christmas gifts and food they received through the generous support of our donors. In particular, the food came at a time when many children were wondering what they were going to eat on that special day. Too many days they have gone without food.
In all, 90 children in northern Uganda were sponsored this year. Each child received a blanket, rice, beans, maize flour, cooking oil sugar and soap. Some of these foods they rarely eat because they simply cannot afford them. Several amazed children shared that this was their first time to be supported by any group of people.
The children were truly grateful and expressed their appreciation to KICA staff and volunteers. One child, named Innocent, captured the sentiments of many children when she said, “we are relieved from looking for money for blankets because God has heard our cry. The last blanket our parents left with us got torn so we have never had one since.”
Thank you for making beautiful moments like this possible.
KICA Transforms Ministries has identified 79 orphaned children in northern Uganda that have no parents or sponsors caring for them. They are hoping to make Christmas special for each of these kids. $20 will provide a meaningful gift for each child, a special meal with meat (which they almost never get), and transport to get it out to their village. Would you please consider making a one-time Christmas gift that will delight a child more than you can possibly imagine?
If you'd like to be an ongoing sponsor for some of these children or a whole child-headed family, read on for more information.
