Bluebonnet Scholastic Material Distribution to Sir. Apollo Kaggwa (Buwaali) Primary School

img_5322

Last Friday the 03rd of March, 2017, we reached out to over 200 pupils of Sir. Apollo Kaggwa Primary School Kawaali with scholastic materials. The materials were donated by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA. 

During our visit to the school, we discovered that the school had fewer streams to accommodate all the seven classes of pupils. Because of this, some classes were sharing a classroom as you can see below. Again, we discovered that Primary One (P.1) class of children of less than 5years was IN A VERY SORRY STATE as you can watch this VIDEO and we call on your support to help this school in terms of infrastructure development.

BLUEBONNET HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO DROUGHT-AFFECTED KIBIRIBIRI ELDERY, WIDOWS AND CHILDREN

img_20170111_130810Yesterday we distributed humanitarian basic needs to the elderly and widows of Kibiribiri villages here in Uganda.
We usually reach OUT to the most needy with humanitarian basic needs in life. Here in Uganda we are hit by serious drought with no hope of serious crop harvest in the near future. Families especially in rural communities survive on only a simple meal everyday and others survive on tree leaves.
Thank you BLUEBONNET for supporting our Humanitarian food assistance to the elderly, children and widows.
We still need food assistance to reach out to the most affected communities. Thank you

SEPTEMBER UPDATES FROM KIRUCODO’S BLUEBONNET HILLS CHRISTIAN CHURCH-SPONSORED SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

P.5 pupils for Kikandwa Church of Uganda Primary school during training

Since 2011, Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas USA has been supporting the skills development training program of community people in and around Kikandwa villages.

In February 2012, skills development training services were also extended to primary pupils in Kikandwa Church of Uganda Primary School and currently two classes are participating as per the following list indicate.

KIRUCODO will soon setup three additional community skills development training centers within three identified community rural primary schools to serve pupils, teachers and community people especially school dropouts, women and unemployed youths.

The current training sponsorship from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church will expire at the end of this month (September) and it is on this note that we call on your support to help cover the training expenses for the months of October and November. For each month, US$ 160 is needed to cover the trainer’s allowances and training materials of 25 participants.

If interested in supporting our skills development training programs, please feel free to contact us at kruralcommunitiesdevorg@yahoo.com

Extending Humanitarian Assistance to the Elderly and other disadvantage rural farmers; A report on assistance distribution from Blue Bonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas USA through Pastor Dr. Landon on 04th March 2012

In Uganda and Africa in general, over 95% of the elderly population live in rural communities to carry out agriculture as well as taking care of the grand children of their deceased or un-independent children, etc

The elderly and other disadvantaged people with their received aid items donated by Blue Bonnet Hills Christian Church

The elderly have a very great contribution to the development of our communities but sad to say, they are not catered for by policy makers and they always have to struggle very hard on their own in order to survive.

Most of the elderly have no enough strength to cultivate land and so they need assistance and care at all time.

Thank you Blue Bonnet Hills Christian Church members of Austin Texas USA for extending humanitarian assistance to our Organization’s Humanitarian Assistance Program to the Elderly and other rural disadvantaged people.

The Humanitarian Assistance reached to 69 elderly and disadvantage rural farmers where each of the beneficiaries received the following items for home basic use:

  1. A bar of soap for washing clothes, etc
  2. 1Kg of sugar for making tea
  3. 1Kg of corn flour for food or porridge
  4. 5 Sackets of tea leaves for making hot tea
  5. 10 boxes of match boxes for making fire
  6. 0.5L of paraffin for candle light

The above items are considered the most essential leave alone others such as medical assistance, clothes, bedding materials, etc. Currently, in rural communities here in Uganda, most of the elderly either don’t take or take tea with no sugar or tea leaves; have to wait for neighbors to come back from garden so she or he can borrow a match box to make fire, have to sleep very early because he or she lacks paraffin in his or candle, put on dirty clothes because she or he lacks washing soap, etc

There is still a need for humanitarian assistance to reach to about 300 elderly and disadvantaged in 10 villages. The aid can be directed to home use material, clothes, house renovation, health, among others.

Below in the photo slideshow is what happened during the distribution of the aid. Also feel free to download the accountability on how a total of US$ 1,535 (Accountability in word version) got spent on various activities including the Humanitarian assistance to the Elderly and other disadvantaged people.

Lastly, there about four situations I will be organizing a separate blog post to show you the real situation of the elderly  and other disadvantaged people living in rural communities here inUganda. These will cove the following:

“Investing in the education of a rural girl child can help to restore hope to the hopeless and helpless elderly people in rural communities”. This will base on the two serious cases we leant about during the house to house humanitarian assistance delivery to the elderly where we found a daughter taking care of her mother who has now spent over three years on bed and the only part of her body she can move on her own are the eye-bows. The second case was again for a daughter who is currently taking care of her father who has spent over one and half years on bed and has to discharge through a tube and he cannot move nether can he sit.

“Take care of the elderly to ensure agricultural skills and practices for the next generation”. This will base on the situation we leant of where the elderly are left uncared for  in rural communities yet are the ones to pass on the skills to the young ones. This will base of an elderly man who was dumped in a house in Kanganda village and this elderly man hardly moves on his legs and one day fire caught his bed but he could not move away and it was only the mercy of God who uses strangers to come to his rescue by breaking into the house and lifting him from the burning bed.

“Ensure good education to children of poor rural farmers to brighten the future and terminate the poverty cycle of poor rural farming families”. This will base on a very poor, really very poor family we discovered in Kanganda village being taken care of an old woman with totally nothing apart from her heart. She is taking care of three children and one mentally disabled boy. They have nothing, and everyone wanted to cry and everyone said, we would have donated all the humanitarian aid to this family.

The great agonies suffered by Rural communities Disabled People. This will cover a situation of a disabled woman and a man as well as a young man whose spinal cord got despaired after falling from a building he was constructing
