It feels like forever since I have written a blog post… and a lot has happened since then!
GREAT NEWS: It’s official… Allie Loves Uganda is officially sponsoring a child!!! Her name is Gertrude. She is 7 years old, and is going to be able to go to school now through sponsorship. I am so thankful for all of the people who have rallied behind these efforts.
Also- #allielovesuganda now has INSTAGRAM… check it out and go give me a follow. (LINK)
For those of you who don’t think sponsorship is a big deal, let me tell you some stories. Bumba (Boom-ba) was just a kid in the village. His cousin was an orphan and lived in the orphanage in town. The lady running the orphanage, Mama Katherine noticed he needed some help, so she got him a sponsor. Bumba is now in his 20’s. He goes to Uganda Christian College and aspires to become the next president of Uganda. Bumba’s hope is that everyone in Uganda would have clean water. This is only one story, I could tell you so many.
To the person that can’t go on a trip, I would encourage you to do your part. Gertrude could be the next Bumba. Share this post… Buy a canvas… Do your part to get kids around the world in school, fed, and healthy.
