De-worming - Loving a Village!

ON Thursday,   March 26th.  Kisoboka and Show Mercy International are partnering to change a village.
In the past Kisoboka paid for the de-worming of a school.  Kisoboka is no longer associated with the school, we have committed to de-worm the village.

Children and adults in the village have severe malnutrition.  Add onto the malnutrition their stomach being filled with worms.  The worms eat most of  the nutrients they consume. It only makes a bad situation worse.

The last count I have for the village is ~  24,700.  I am  anxiously waiting to find out how many people attend.  If the event is successful we will schedule it 3 times a year.

Donations for this event would be gratefully appreciated the cost is approximately .05 per person.  A very little amount of money can make the world of difference!

Vist 2015 Pictures are posted

Hello All,
I post my pictures on Facebook by grouping.  This link is all the pictures we took during out visit.
It was an amazing visit.  We visited 100 homes.  Our home visits will help boost the economy in the village of Bakka.
We are supporting 50 students in High School and more than 200 children in primary schools.  Approximately 1,200 people for medical care.
Deworming is one of the best health benefits we provided in the past.  Int he past it was only one school.  This year we plan to deworm the entire village!  Details will be coming soon.
Love mom sandy :)

Life in the Village of Bakka

Everyday life in the village of Bakka is hard to imagine. Starting the day by fetching water, carrying it on your head for miles.  Fetching firewood to cook your food.  Digging in the garden to grow the food you will eat.  All of this is completed before the sun is too high in the sky.  

Sleeping on dirt floors in leaky huts, with no electricty or any comforts, with a variety of insects.   Living on less than a $1.00 per day.  The prices of everything are the same or more than in the US.

Now imagine being blind or crippled in these conditions.   Kieza Robert 28 years old, fetches water to earn a living.  Kieza is blind, he is guided by 2 little girls, he follows them by listening to  their steps.  Kieza has never attended school.  
The young girls, Celina age 6 and  Aisha age 8 are not attending school.  If we sponsor them for school Kieza will no longer have his job.  Prayers are needed to guide us in helping Kieza, Celina and Aisha.

Family # 4 Jane

Jane has 4 young daughters,  she is a single mom.  Her husband died several years ago, cause unknown until recently.  Jane  after  several month of illness  learned she is HIV positive.   Her husband died several years ago undiagnosed. Now the cause is known.

Good news none of the daughters tested positive.

Our October visit we learned that Jane was keeping her daughters home to help her. She is to weak to tend the garden and do what was needed to care for her family.  She needed her daughter help.

Kisoboka is now providing Jane and her family with a monthly food supply.  The food supply will help Jane take the HIV medication without becoming sick.  We are also exploring ways to help Jane establish a business that she has the energy to do.  (we have done this successfully in the past)

Kisoboka is gently and lovingly lifting a family out of extreme poverty by providing  support for Jane, and educating for her 4  daughters.

KISOBOKA-  It is possible.

Family #3 Betty 12 years old

A very fragmented family.
Betty is 12 years old in the 7th grade.  She lives with her uncle.  Betty was a twin, her twin sister and both her parents died, when Betty was  very young.  She does not remember what caused their death.

Betty told me she has another sister,  Nasozi Flavia  in the 4th grade.   Her sister Flavia is living with another family. 

Betty dreams of becoming a Nurse, she wants to heal the sick and prevent death.
