With your support, we will provide financial support for Ugandan children who have been their parent(s) primary palliative care givers.
With your generous support, we will provide financial support for orphaned Ugandan children who were their parent(s) primary palliative care giver. Your donation will help pay for their school tuition, books, food and basic care.
In Uganda, as is the case throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, more and more children are being orphaned as a result of losing one or both parents to HIV/AIDS and cancer. With no breadwinner to support them, they often are forced to drop out of school and look for casual jobs such as selling ground nuts on the streets in urban areas or begging for money in order to survive.
Children are very often are the primary caregivers to a parent or parents facing serious, life-limiting illnesses. The Road to Hope program was created as a viable resource for some child caregivers who could very easily find themselves on a much different road were it not for the assistance it provides.
With the help of the fund, George now attends school regularly and his basic needs of food, uniforms and supplies are covered. He recently moved to a new boarding school and is adjusting well. His progress is monitored on a regular basis by PCAU staff and volunteers. He will continue to receive support and encouragement from those associated with the program on an official basis through his 18th year and unofficially beyond that.
The gift of hope is priceless – and in the case of the Road to Hope fund, the hope for a better future can be given for less than a $1 a day.
