Your contributions really do make a tangible difference. We make sure of it.

You built the primary school at St. Jude Children’s Home, supported the creation of Consolation Home for children with special needs, and cared for countless orphans each year.  You send teenage boys and girls to secondary school year after year. You bought an ambulance and provided life-saving treatment to thousands at Lacor Hospital.

We only partner with longstanding, reputable, effective Ugandan nonprofits.

You have contributed to the amazing progress that has occurred in one of the poorest places in the world.  A place that was once the center of the horrendous terrorism waged by the Lord’s Resistance Army and still has intense, life-threatening poverty.

Prior to 2013 your support sponsored orphans at St. Jude Children's Home including their nursery and primary education. Starting in 2013, your donations to St. Jude Children's Home support secondary and technical school education.

You send about 40 teenage boys and girls to secondary and vocational school every year.– usually about ¾ attend secondary and ¼ attend vocational schools.

In 2016, you bought a new ambulance for Lacor Hospital.  Ambulance service is particularly important to improve maternal and child health; for pregnant women in difficult labor and children in severe respiratory distress, ambulance transport can mean the difference between life and death.  This new ambulance allowed the hospital to guarantee transfer of patients from Lacor Hospital to Mulago Hospital in Kampala for specialized services.

In 2015, your donations purchased 20 wheelchairs for children living at Consolation Home, within St. Jude Children’s Home.  As you can see in the lower picture, without your help children are relegated to using makeshift chairs that do not support their unique postural and physical needs.

The staff of Consolation Home helps children to be active within the community by studying, playing, and interacting with friends and caregivers.

In 2008, St. Jude Primary School was able to open its own primary school because of your donations.  Its opening meant the children of St. Jude’s could stop attending schools where there were often 200 children in one class – instead these children now attend one of the highest performing primary schools in northern Uganda
