Part of the funds we receive from our sponsors and donors goes to special projects for the children and residents of Kisebere. In August, our foundation sent funds to Bishop Tom so he and his wife could purchase medications locally to be used by the Mama Sabina Community Health Center, Uganda. These vital medications are available to patients of the Health Center, including many of our sponsored children.
The funds were sent for the purchase of the medications locally instead of shipping the medications. Shipping medications would have taken several weeks to arrive and the shipping costs are very high. Plus, there's no guarantee the medications would have arrived safely or completely. By buying them locally, more medications could be purchased since there was not the expense of shipping, plus it also helped the local economy.
When Bishop Tom received the funds, he said, "these medications will save lives!"
