House built, now a garden to be self sufficient for good nutrition

Open Heart Orphanage is reaching the level of independence in terms of house rent and now an opportunity to cater for daily feeding, it normally cost us $3,000 to feed all the 120 children we care for as floods and weather changes are invading Uganda with loss of hundreds of people food prices have tripled and as of now it cost $5,000 to feed the children per month which is expected to continue in the country all the food we have will feed the children until 1st January 2019.

As some of you maybe aware that our orphanage have no income generating projects that’s why we keep on asking for donations now we have an opportunity near the orphanage were two acres are on sale at $30,000 with this land our team together with the children can make a garden for enough food, vegetables can take two to three weeks to harvest and other types of food may take three to six weeks to harvest, one man said give a fish to a man and feed him all his and give him a catch net and he will feed himself for the rest of the time, it is too hard nearly impossible to keep on seeking funds for food on daily basis which we fail to do some times and kids go days without food we think that this is an opportunity for Open Heart Orphanage to become independent even if no one will donate the children will still survive without any starvation if we have this land.

We have no commitment fee at the moment to stop the owner from taking this land to the market we ask you givers and all lover of needy children around the world to see how you can stand with us a commitment fee of $1,000 is urgently needed for a commitment agreement between Open Heart Orphanage and the owner.

We hope that the sooner we have this land it will provide us enough time at least to garden vegetables and simple food stuffs before 1st January 2019 to sustain the orphanage before other food is harvested. the information we have now is that once we raise 50% of $30,000 which is $15,000 we can have access on this land as we continue to raise the remaining money.

We ask you to pray, and share and donate to secure this piece of land.

OPHOM – Hassan – HEART Uganda – Orphan’s Family House and School

You could support them to have their own house shortly. So they save costs and are eased to a great extent.

Orphans family home and school for poor cared for by a pastor couple with a helper in Mityama – love, faith and hope

From Open Hearts Orphanage Ministry (OPHOM): Uganda has been hit by war, disease and poverty more than most other countries in the world. Many people died and are devastated. This leaves many children without any care. We save such children.

In Spring 2017 Pastor Hassan Mubiru from Mityama in Uganda contacted me friendly on Facebook. I checked his profile and found the orphanage which needs help.

I had the impression in the spirit that we should give something. In the meantime I mailed to a few people I know to inform them, too. I phoned with Hassan with WhatsApp call to get to know him better and the situation there.

He and his wife were caring for up to 40 children age ranging 4 to 14, mostly coming from Christian family backgrounds. Both parents have died or the lone mother can’t support their child enough. Sometimes also couples are not able to do so. So children are coming here. As the sleeping places have got to small for the children only 10 could stay.

Hassan is pastor of the Disciples Christian Fellowship Church and runs a small business. He and his wife sell little fish.

I was interested how a typical day looks like in the orphanage:

At 6 a.m. they pray together with 28 children who go to the nearby schools and food is prepared for them. Some children in the right age for school can’t go right now because money for the school fees for the public school is lacking.

 At 10 a.m. the other children get breakfast.

 When the school children come back around 1 p.m. the have meal if there is something to eat. Sometimes the money for food is missing. Then they head back to school.

Between 4 and 5 p.m. they come back to the orphanage. Now they clean their clothes and bath.

Around 8 p.m. all pray and eat dinner if there is something. Some finish open works for the school.

And how is the social surrounding?

The region shows different religions. More protestant believers than pentecostal. Many Muslims and more religions.

Most people are poor and have no stable income. They live from about $1 a day. The government is not helping enough. Among protestants there are some rich who work in the government.

House and Land

Hassan could buy a piece of land where they are cultivating vegetable now. Also a house could be built on a part of this land. They are paying back the loan.

Hassan plans to have a fish farm one day on the land for a good income.

School

About 100 and the orphanage family children can go there. The teachers engage themselves through the love of Christ.

Concerns for Orphanage and School for Poor Children

From Open hearts Orphanage Ministry (OPHOM):

One of the most challenging things for us is to pay the rent for the current home.

We already have a plot for our desired orphanage, we would be very happy to have a house there for the children.

The operating costs should be low. To do that, we dig a well and install solar panels for electricity.

This will save us twice as much money for rescuing children from poverty, trafficking, illness and death.

Nobody is paid for administrative work in OPHOM. Unfortunately, food prices have risen sharply.

A small school, where about 100 children from poor backgrounds are allowed, has been started and the children are being taught.

Concerns of the supervisors on site:

Being able to finance your own home and save a lot on rent – construction costs would be $ 45,000 for 40 children or 15,000 for 8-12 children. That would make the rent of $ 1,200 unnecessary in the future.

That the arrears can be paid to teachers’ wages and rent for the orphanage and that everything necessary for orphanage and school can be financed constantly and on time.
