Greetings from Miryante Home. We send you all warm regards from Uganda. Despite COVID-19, we still thank God for the gift of life that He has given to us all. We also feel so grateful for your monthly support towards Miryante Children’s home, especially amidst this entire crisis.
The children are doing very well and their health is good. They are trying to study remotely via Uganda’s national teaching program on the television. It’s still is not the best because they cannot ask the teacher when they haven’t understood something, but it’s better than nothing. The other holiday programs are still carried on as usual i.e. daily slashing the compound, playing games, and digging in the garden as shown below:
Thanks to our former Volunteer Olly who surprised our kids with 15 cartons of soda, a goat, and 25 kgs of rice. Thanks for being part of us. The children were happy and felt loved especially during such a season in a lockdown.
Every Friday our social workers and caretakers meet with the children for group counseling and listen to the children’s concerns. They teach them about sanitation and body hygiene and general cleanliness and its importance. We always award marks to different dormitories according to their performance.
Despite of the drought during this season, the children are of great help in watering and mulching the vegetables. As management we are happy to inform you all that despite the drought, we have enough vegetables for the children. We even have a surplus that we are donating to the community to share with families that are in need during this time. Below are some pictures of our gardens and cultivating the vegetable garden
Thanks to everyone, that is giving a hand towards this great work. We feel blessed at Miryante Home.
