Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Family Caregivers Association for the Aged Group(FCAAG) is a local NGO which was formed to address the increasing needs of the chronically poor older persons and orphaned children in Northern Uganda.

We have been donated a container of goods already in Kampala at the Mombassa Port. Since the container is now ours, we need to pay for freight from Mombasa Port to Kampala which is US. $ 4200.

Following transport to the port in Kampala another US. $1500 is required for transporting the container from Kampala to the village were the goods will be distributed to the orphans, children, children affected by HIV/AIDS and poor elderly people in our community.

We are therefore, requesting any organization, companies, donors to assist us cover the transport costs of moving this container.
