Christmas meals for slum families

After another year of Covid-19 lockdowns and food shortages in Namatala slum, please could you help us give slum families a special Christmas treat?

When we did this last year, children and their families ate well on Christmas Day and Boxing Day – and they still talk about it. Since then, children have been stuck at home for the entire year; it would be fantastic to bless them all again with Christmas food.

We’ve been supporting hundreds of families throughout Covid-19 lockdowns and curfews, which have seriously reduced food availability and inflated prices. We’ve helped the entire families of our pupils, plus other desperately needy families. That’s tons and tons of maize flour, beans, salt and soap.

This year’s Christmas meal will again be rice, meat and vegetables for each family to cook at home. To feed around 5,000 people it will cost £5,000 – that’s just £1 per person.

We know times are tough for many at the moment, but if you would like to contribute, please click the donate button below which takes you to our JustGiving page, or you can donate via our website by PayPal, cheque or online banking

Any additional funds over our target will be used to support slum children and families throughout the year.

New Christmas video!

Starring Child of Hope pupils, our latest fun video shows the kids longing for school to open again... and nearly getting there. It's under five minutes – we hope you enjoy it!

And a very Merry Christmas to all our friends and supporters!
