Helping orphaned and challenged children, Uganda

Requested by

Sherman Health Care Foundation

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

We live in a world of abundance, yet millions of children in our world suffer from lack of food, health care, neglect and abuse. Among all children, the children of Africa suffer most. The challenges facing the children of Africa are many. Thirty thousand babies every year are born HIV positive; diseases such as malaria, polio, respiratory infections and diarrhea are the reasons that most children die under five years of age.

Sherman Health Care Foundation is an NGO based in Busia district in Eastern Uganda. We support orphans and vulnerable children with education support and social welfare. We also help educate single mothers on positive living and poverty eradication. We are in need of fundraising partner organizations.

What is your project and how will it help?

Through its assistance programs, Sherman Healthcare Foundation insures that:

• All orphans and needy children get access to an education.
• The children receive proper health care, food, shelter and clothing.
• The children don’t become victims of neglect and child abuse.
• What is needed for internal growth is provided.
• The restoration of the children’s rights to basic needs.

With the help of our partners, we can continue to prevent these children from moving to the nearby towns to become street children and criminals. We can enable children to undergo an integrated growth that produces responsible society members. Child labor can be curbed and illiteracy can be reduced.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We are looking for individuals and organizations that can partner with our organization to help in fundraising for our charity.

Please detail the resources that you need.

We are in need of 22,000 Euros to help buy books, pens, text books, uniforms for the children.
