October Update in Uganda

Following the rapid progress on the building front the project remains on target for completion before Christmas this year. Adrian spoke to the Sisters about requirements for the orphanage once the building is completed , it was agreed that the Trust would make additional funds available for the fixtures and fittings such as Curtains, Beds, Bed linen, mosquito nets, new clothes for the children ,new shoes for the children ,a new TV and satellite dish, a new computer to facilitate communication and to provide a learning experience for the children.

Other requirements will be addressed on an ad hoc basis as the project nears completion.

We would like to repeat our thanks to Mr Kalanda and his team at Kwewayo Contractors for the rapid and efficient progress they continue to make.

Kyasira Home of Hope

Kyasira Home of Hope

Kyasira Home of Hope is a Ugandan orphanage located off the Entebbe Road between Kampala and Entebbe. It caters for destitute street children with about 45 living there at present. All welfare, and most health and education in Uganda is provided by religious and faith groups on a charitable basis. Kyasira Home of Hope is run by 4 Religious Sisters from the Order of the Good Samaritan, whose mission is to care for the most needy. They refer to the children as their ‘sons’ and ‘daughters’ and provide a loving environment for them.

Updates at Kyasira Home of Hope

Over the past few weeks, Adrian has been speaking with local building contractors to design and plan the next stage of the project.

Initial payments from the trust have been made and the building work has commenced! The trust will continue to ensure that everything is catered for.

You can see from the image below what we aim to achieve.

The building will contain two dormitories – one for the boys and one for the girls, living quarters for the Sisters, kitchens, and storage areas.

Electricity and clean water complete the build which will be a world away from the current amenities the children and staff have at the moment. We aim for completion in October 2012.
