Salome, Michael, Gideon, Dotto, Kulwa and Emmanuel are feeling at home at Mayega.
They enjoyed wrapping themselves in their new comfort blankets knitted by Lorna Logan of Gordon Chapel. They have all started school at Mayega and are mixing freely with the other children and joining in with activities. They are already looking stronger and fitter thanks to regular meals and tender loving care from the Mayega Children’s Centre Staff.
We now have 11 girls and 8 boys at the orphanage. Another young boy has already been identified to join them and we expect him to be brought to the centre next week. We are working closely with the Social Services Department of Busega District to identify the children most in need of care. All the children have lost their biological parents and have been living with elderly relatives or neighbours in desperate poverty where food has been in short supply.
Over the next few months we will increase the number of children to 24.
