Dear Sponsors and Supporters,
Since our email to you in March, our 920 sponsored children have been returning to school by following the government calendar in Uganda for classes starting, and all students are scheduled to be in school by July 1st. Our high school seniors have finished their school year and will soon begin the ABIDE program, our residential discipleship and evangelism program. Our younger students recently received Discipleship group (Dgroup) devotional materials to study God’s Word in community. University and vocational students are continuing their studies, and 15 students are graduating! All this is possible with your ongoing support!
During this time of uncertainty, we all value stability and have people in our lives that have made an impact. For the children in our program, that person has been their social worker. Our social workers have been the bridge in caring for and keeping in constant contact with the students and evaluating the needs of the children and their families.
We are reaching out to you regarding some additional critical needs of the ministry:
- Motorbikes for social workers at each of our 6 carepoints to equip them to provide more effective care for our students and their families.
- Medical outreach to serve those in impoverished communities, many of whom have never seen a doctor.
- As children return to school after a year, there are additional needs for reopening such as supplies and food support.
- Critical food support for the elderly in our operation areas who continue to suffer during this time of pandemic.
You can continue to make a difference in the lives of the children
in our program, like Edson whose story is below, by making a donation online at www.amagara.org or by responding with the reply card enclosed with this letter. If you have appreciated stock and would like to donate it to the ministry, we have a tax-advantaged way for you to do so. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We thank you in advance for partnering with us as we continue to reach even more
orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda in the name of Jesus.
In His service,
Chairman of the Board, Juna Amagara USA
