Orphans and vulnerable children support programm
Majority of children accessing care at HELP- Uganda are vulnerable having either lost at least one parent or both, living in child headed households, living with elderly caretakers, living in poverty stricken households, disabled and some of them abused! These children and their siblings are always marginalized and therefore interventions to ensure they live with dignity are critical. The OVC program aims at promoting the wellbeing of these OVC by trying to address their holistic needs through providing support such as emergency food rations, education, psychosocial support, child protection and economic strengthening
However, the burden of OVC continues to overwhelm the available resources. Each day a number of OVC caretakers flock HELP Uganda offices desperately seeking assistance for food, education, capital for income generation, psychosocial support among others. Amidst trifling resources we are left with no choice but to vitally assess for the neediest of the needy using strict criteria. This however does not mean that the ones left out are not needy; in fact even among the neediest; a number of them are left out!
It is against this background that HELP Uganda calls upon every individual, company or organization that can sacrifice some resource towards responding to the OVC cause. This may financial or l in-kind support such as food (beans, maize flour, rice sugar, cooking oil etc.), clothes, beddings, toys, shoes etc. HELP –Uganda has established a desk officer with an intention of increasing resources for OVC. We do not need to wait for billions from Americans to change the lives of OVC in our care; we can do just small things with love. Mother Teresa said that “In this world we cannot do great things, we can only do small things with great love”, “It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing, it is not how much we give but how much love we put in the giving.”
