Beds for the elderly of Amor Village
Yonnina is 82 years old, she is blind and she is one of the 25 we are seeking support for, for beds.

Dear Friends of Hope for the Elderly Ministries of Uganda,
Our mission with this fundraiser is to provide beds and bedding for 25 of the Elderly of Amor Village, Uganda. The estimated costs of $75 per person will provide a mattress, blankets, and a bed frame for each person. Currently, the most vulnerable of Amor’s community are sleeping on mats placed on the ground. While they would be most grateful for the mattresses alone, including bed frames would ensure that they are not only more comfortable but that the bedding lasts longer.
Traditionally, the grandparents and great-grandparents of Uganda are supported by their families. There is not a social welfare system in place for those left without this support. However, HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda has left many of the elderly without adult children to care for them. Often, they are caring for orphaned grandchildren and great grandchildren. They live on very meager means; providing food for themselves and children under their care.

Get Involved

Our target is to raise $1800. With this we hope to fulfil the need and provide new beds to 25 of our elderly friends.
Please donate and share.
