Friends of Batwa International
It is believed that possession of land is key in making permanent decisions. The Batwa seem to have lost hope after they were evicted from their home with out compassion for their lost land. Because they lived in forest as hunters and gatherers, they lacked the skills to survive in the new environment. Now they live destitute lives, with a lot of hopelessness. They can’t afford to put their children in school or provide them with basic needs. Friends of Batwa International is working towards restoring this lost hope, by giving access to land for education to build a school with clean water, medical care and food security with agriculture.
Our intention is to purchase another acre of land for a cost of 10,000.00 not including building or supplies for school. Donations can be made on our secure donation site and will go a log way to helping the Batwa.
In September, we had a very successful 3 day medical camp funded by Terri Parker from the USA. Over 100 people were benefited from this program. Five women accepted family planning and one Batwa man was diagnosed with HIV. Twenty five children were treated for jiggers that cause very painful sores on the feet. The whole village was sprayed to kill all bugs including jiggers.
This Batawa boy build this own bow and arrow! We are wanting to educate 40 children to give them hope for the future and transform communities.
In July 2021 The Batwa at village K received food donated by Heart to Heart International. Made possible only by God’s grace and donations from generous hearts.
Much needed clothing donated by Friends of Batwa International in Uganda were distributed. Each Batwa family got seeds for planting, hoes, soap, jelly and tooth paste. Simple products like these make a huge impact in their lives.
In August 2021, Faith Ablaze Missions funded the construction of Julian’s house. Faith Ablaze Missions is a USA based ministry Headed by David and Marva Bryant, they trusted us with the project. Juliana got a house, bed and beddings.
Finished house for Juliana, much better for keeping dry. Houses like these only cost around 500 US dollars. We would love to do more of these houses for the Batawa people. Donations are appreciated.
This is Richard Mwesigwa our partner in helping the Batwa people. He recently spent time with his paternal granny, at an amazing 106 years old. She was born in 1915 and can still tell stories and turn dull days bright, such a lovely centenarian. Learn more about Friends of Batwa International on the facebook page
Heart 2 Heart in Uganda
We are continually needing donations to help Pastor Samson and his wife Gladys in their hearts mission for the community of Maliki Village and beyond.
Samson is doing the gospel full time and the kids are all in school now. The children are right age for mentoring now. They are ready to start programs of their own to help their community. For the last three months we have been doing mostly farming and youth mentorship in choosing careers and making quality choices after school. More info can be found on his facebook page.
News From Kenya
This is was another tricky year in farming in Kenya. In fact we are among the blessed who harvested. Many people lost a lot due too much rain when we were sewing destroying the beans completely. The same rain disappeared when it was needed to mature the maize. We harvested 9-50# bags of maize! The Beans we harvested totaled four 50# bags. This will feed the children of His Family Youth Home in Kenya until January 2022.
Greg Dahl gave funds to H2H Intl to purchase windows for “Family Christian Church” in Maliki Village, Kenya where Samson pastors. Thank you Greg for your generous donation. The windows look beautiful.
