The Story of the House with No Walls:

My name is Andrew Banman and I live in an urban community on the edge of Kampala Uganda. At first glance this neighborhood looks like many others, but a walk behind the main street exposes living conditions that can only be described as slums. Garbage piles, standing dirty water you don't want to step in, and small dwellings with cracks surround tight streets. This is my home community and it is called Lugala.

In Lugala I see all extremes of life. Some people here seem lost. Others are hustling to make a living. Some seem rude but some are amazing friends. Some are thriving in a career but there are others who are not thriving at all. Some people really need someone to reach out and love them.

One such family lives in a house with no walls. This place is home for mother and father as well as 7 children. I first encountered this place last Christmas when our 92Hands team (youth serving in this community) delivered a Christmas meal to the family. Since that time, I have thought about this home often. I have wondered if they are eaten alive by Mosquitos at night? I have wondered what they do when it rains and the water flows through the community?

How do they cope? There is really no option for them but to deal with their uncomfortable reality. When the bugs come they must cover up with a blanket. When the rain pours they must grab things off the floor and huddle on a bunk-bed and try to stay dry.

As I look out the window of my lovely house on the hill overlooking this scene, I become troubled. My neighbor has no means to change this situation. Clearly this family needs my help.

The Transformation is Scheduled:

Working with my young friends at 92Hands, the cost of building walls and connecting the roof properly has been defined. This family can have a real home for $1000 (US).

So, we have scheduled this work to take place in July when our North American missions team is here in Lugala. These local young people and our team will build real walls. We will all get our hands dirty together. Brick-by-brick we will transform this tin roof on sticks into a real home.

Join Our Team:

This is my personal invitation to you. Why not reach across the planet into my small community and transform day-to-day life for this family. Sacrifice the price of a coffee or be even more generous. This little house with no walls really MUST become a real home!

And let's NOT stop there, let's  AIM HIGHER and setup a fund to help this family and several more like them. Let's show this little community real practical love and raise $5000 (US).

Trade a little of your valuable money in on something priceless, help a family to thrive!
