Feed starving orphans in Uganda!

Campaign Created by: Eric Holloway

The funds from this campaign will be received by Eric Holloway.

Goal: USD $10,000
Raised: USD $ 5,713

Help feed 40 starving orphans for a month with a $5 donation!

The children in the orphanage go for long periods without food. Currently, they have gone 7 days without food. Imagine that!

The name of the orphanage is Come Alive Charitable Ministries. The orphanage supports 40 orphans in the poverty stricken region of Loum, Uganda in the northern province. These children are the victims of widespread disease and war in the area that has killed their parents.

Their monthly food cost is $350. We are trying to raise enough for four months, plus a tip for givesendgo.  That totals $1500. You can find the orphanage LinkedIn group at https://www.linkedin.com/groups/14296172.

Once we raise enough funds and purchase the food, the receipt will be posted along with a picture of the orphans enjoying their meal :) Donate and imagine the huge smiles on their faces!

Tragic death of child, need for connected water

Sadly, a few days ago one of the children was killed while collecting water for the orphanage.  The nearest source of water is 15 miles away, and it is a dangerous area.  There are gangs in the area that kidnap and kill children for organ harvesting.  The poor child was killed by one of these gangs while traveling to the spring.  The attached image is of the boy's wrapped body.

There is an immediate need to reconnect the orphanage's water supply, so the children don't need to make the dangerous journey to collect water.  The cost to reconnect is $170, and current donations will go towards reconnecting the orphanage's water.
