Mother Ann Foundation has been working in Uganda for many years. They have helped hundreds of orphans, underprivileged kids and barely-coping parents by providing the kids with basics such as food and clothes but also by educating them. Currently the Foundation runs a nursery school in Kampala, the capital city. The nursery school serves orphaned and poor kids who would otherwise not be able to attend school.
The Foundation is appealing to locals in the UK to make a shoebox for Christmas that can be sent to the kids in Uganda. Many of them do not have the resources to celebrate Christmas and so such a shoebox can really make all the difference, in particular if it is filled with useful items such as toothpaste and clothes.
For more information on how to make such a box and then how to get it to the Foundation, please see the link below. Any donations are greatly appreciated and in turn you will receive a gift and photos from the children in Uganda.
