The 25th of December is the day we remember Christ’s birth. This day is celebrated each calendar year by billions around the world.

In the same spirit of celebration, one young man invited a friend to share a Christmas lunch with him at his home 18 years ago. At that time, Christmas was nothing to these boys but a day that an unusual amount of food was cooked. It was the only day of the year they could enjoy more than one bottle of their favorite soft drink.

Unlike previous Christmas celebrations, this was different for both boys because they got to witness the joy of giving and receiving. Over the years, these two have carried on the tradition by sharing a Christmas meal with families in their community who could not afford one.

In 2014, these two boys spearheaded a youth movement called 92Hands which serves people who are struggling in the community. Each Christmas they add their savings to donations from friends and share the joy of Christ’s birth with neighbors.

Feeding Kosovo is in its 4th year and has fed close to 1000 families. Feeding Kosovo 2018 is Unique, it's big and better, we are extending it to another slum in Kampala called Katanga, aiming to feed another 400 struggling families in Katanga and 400 in Kosovo. Each family will receive staple-foods for 5 or 6 people. Children who might otherwise go hungry will feel the joy of Christmas this year.

 

And Women taking care of these families will be enrolled in our Us4women Program for 2019, were we they will be equipped with the skills and resources they need to rise above poverty, become leaders in their communities,  take care of their families and also send their kids back to school.

 

Make your Christmas more meaningful by partnering with us and help a struggling family. Together, we can ALL celebrate Jesus birth!
