Buyamba Uganda Updates

Florence's Travels are a Success!

Our annual event, Standing Together, featuring Florence Dongo and her son Glory Dongo was a huge success! If you were wondering why Florence Dongo rarely visited the U.S. with Pastor Dongo in the past, you'll want to hear her explanation in the video below taken from our Annual Buyamba Dinner. 
 
 

"Dress A Girl"

Jennifer Jolly Martz, a sponsor from Gainesville, Texas, takes time out of her schedule to gather with friends and sew dresses for the girls at God Cares School (see Dress A Girl's website for more details).
The handmade dresses are easy to make and have such an impact on the little ones,
making them feel beautiful inside and out.

We can't emphasize enough how grateful and amazed we are to see our partners come up with Creative Giving ideas, using what's already in their hands to bless the orphaned and needy children. Thank you!
 




Uganda is experiencing a major drought and as a result, food costs have increased. Late last year, Bloomberg news reports at least 1.3 million people in various parts of the East African nation need food aid urgently after a dry spell decimated harvests.

Thanks Dongo is looking into ways to farm more efficiently, in the meantime, your gift of any amount can go towards helping us reach our rising food costs.

 
 
Sponsor A Child

Phionah

My father passed away and my mom needs help supporting my residential needs at God Cares High School. Your sponsorship of $35 a month will cover my boarding fees at school and make a difference in my life. 


Suitcases
 Needed!



The Buyamba office is in need of suitcases to travel to Uganda. Larger sizes are best, preferably with wheels since we carry several at a time. Suitcases are essential for us to carry over supplies to Uganda.

If you are able to donate new or used suitcases please stop by our office in Westlake Village, CA.
