Dental team visiting

Dental team visiting

They were in action for 2 weeks and this time we stopped counting extracted teeth. There were just too many. The offer of treatment was accepted again with great pleasure and many patients were relieved of toothache, some of which had lasted for years. We are dr. Ophoff and her teams are infinitely grateful for their tireless and so valuable work under extremely difficult conditions for the people of northern Uganda. Of course our school children were examined again and again the result was brilliant. Only a fraction of the children really needed treatment. A very encouraging result, as with the last check-ups.
What is less nice is that we have lockdown again and have been since the beginning of June. That means the schools were closed again and most of the children are at home. Although the lockdown will be relaxed from tomorrow, schools are not yet allowed to reopen. The start of school was announced for the beginning of September.

Who we are and what we do


"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
(Jak. 1:27)

Our current project

With your help, the kitchen and the dormitories could be completed. Thank you so much to everyone who was there for us!

A simple community school is currently needed. Not all children in the surrounding villages can attend our school because the distances are too great and the paths too dangerous. Again and again you can encounter elephants, buffalos or other animals that cross to the Nile to drink water. For this reason we decided to build a primary school with four classrooms in one of the villages so that all children can go to school.

Such a building with four classrooms costs about 12,000 euros. A lot of thanks to a generous donation from Denmark, we were able to credit 3,500 euros. So we are only missing 8,500 euros.

A big thank you to everyone who makes this project possible. You can donate directly here.
