A Children Arise team is going to the Rakai district in southern Uganda to provide shoes and clothes for young children in need. We hope each child will be provided with a pair of sandals, a pair of pants, a shirt, and a pair of underwear. A medical team will acompany us and address medical issues while we clean up the kids and dress them in clothes. Then we will work with the local church community for follow up with the families.
Children Arise expects each full outfit to cost aproxomately $10 US per child. Clothes won't be fancy but will address the need. We estimate that there will be 80 children who need clothes in this community. Our clothing costs are therefore estimated at $800 US.
Our actual fund raising target is set at $1100 US so that we can also cover the cost of medications to treat the children. Children recovering from Jiggers will need some ointments and antibiotics to protect them against infections.
Children Arise invites you to partisipate in clothing and caring for these children. Are you able to partner with us?
