Dear Friends,

Could you donate £ 8.50 to help Edrin have a special day out this Christmas?

For the vulnerable children Awamu works with Christmas is like any other time of the year - they wake up facing the same challenges they face every day of their lives and without even a decent hot meal to look forward to.

The last few months have been extra hard on our most vulnerable children because it’s been raining in Bwaise (the slum area where our children live) nearly every day for two months.

Bwaise is swamp; people build their homes here as they can’t afford to live anywhere better.

It’s a slum with no services – few toilets, no rubbish collection and open sewers - which means when it floods families, especially those living in make shift structures, suffer.

Their few possessions can be washed away in minutes or contaminated by the filthy sewage water.

As the rains have been so sustained this time the fetid water hasn't had a chance to drain away...the stench around our childrens homes is stomach churning.

A day of fun - to escape, play and eat well!

This year we want to give our children an extra special treat – away from the filth and contamination of Bwaise.

We’ve planned to escape the slums for a day to somewhere they can run around, play games and dance. We'll have cake (of course!) a decent hot meal, a small gift for each child to make them feel special and a small food package so they can eat over Christmas. 

We work with 100 children and we think we can lay all this on for £850 - that is just £8.50 per child.

Can you spare £8.50 (or more if you can afford it!) to give Edrin and his friends a chance to escape the slums for a day?

Ways to help

  1. Make a donation of £8.50 or whatever you can afford.  
  2. Give a contribution as a gift for a loved one and we'll send you a colourful greetings card (for you to add your own message) explaining how their gift has helped to give a vulnerable child like Edrin a special treat this Christmas.

Lots of festive love,

Emma, Kerry, Steve and all your friends in Kampala X

P.S. You can also make a regular gift to help children like Edrin get the education that is so vital to their future  here.
