Hey IR Family!
I just wanted to take a quick moment and share a story with you.
As you know, we started running a Charity Boot Camp every Saturday morning at 10am. All of the proceeds have been donated to charity and I wanted to show you the people that your money if helping.
This story is from a mother in Uganda.
I greet you warmly in the Loving Name of our Savior Jesus Christ. I want to thank you so very much for the support that you so lovingly give to me and my baby.
My name is Kuguma Sadresss of Rwamugoma Kashenyi Ruhinda sub-county in Rukungiri district. My baby’s name is Kasande Gift and she is 15 months old.
I want to thank you for your enabling support at the CSP project at Kashenyi Child Development Center. At the Center, I have greatly benefitted from the functional adult literacy classes and the staffs there are so very friendly that I find it a joy all the time am heading there for the programs. My ability to write my name was through the Functional Adult Literacy classes that I attended at the CSP project.
My husband too loves the CSP program, we have learnt several subjects like how to start up an income generating activity and most recently, it was a joy learning baking and cookery. It was even more interesting because our husbands who, our culture considers it a taboo to go to the kitchen and cook were the most active of the participants.
Recently, the Project Staff invited a very knowledgeable person to teach us about HIV and AIDS. You can’t imagine how differently I got to understand the pandemic. It was as if no one else had ever taught about it to me before. I also have learnt how to look after my baby and how to avoid preventable childhood illnesses such as malaria, pneumonia and diseases related to poor feeding.
I want to thank you for the support that you give to us has greatly improved my life and that of my baby before I joined the CSP. None of my children ever weighed 2kgs at birth, but Gift was born with a weight of 3.5kg. I also had challenges breastfeeding all my children and it most of the time resulted in undernourished children but when I narrated my situation to the project staff at our CSP, they readily advised me and enabled me access food supplements for baby.
I do believe that my registration on the program was a gift from God and that is the reason why I named my child Gift. I have confessed Christ as Lord and Savior while on the program. My children know how to pray and my husband who used to drink alcohol has stopped the habit as a result of the Good News of salvation at the project. Please continue to pray that the Good Lord saves my husband completely.
May God continue to use you to change the lives of many other women like He has enabled you to
transform mine and my baby’s.
God Bless You Always. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2012.
UG-C17 CSP MOTHER
