How We Help
There are many issues facing our clients such as lack of food, unable to work, unable to pay school fees for their children and poor social support. Our services provide a holistic approach to assist them to manage these problems.
One of the newer projects we are extremely excited about is the New Hope Children's Hostel for children who have cancer.
New Hope for Children With Cancer
New Hope Children’s hostel assists many regional families who are disadvantaged, to relieve their anxiety and trauma as they are not only dealing with having a child suffering from a terrible illness - cancer but without support they are unable to access the medical care the child needs to try and get them well.
Our hostel needs the support of people like you to continue this vital service. The hostel was originally supported with a three year funding contract and this ended recently. The hostel has the support of another generous partner for the next 12 months for operational expenses however we need help with providing food, accommodation, medical supplies and daily transport to and from the hospital for treatment.
Our hostel needs the support of people like you to continue this vital service. We therefore started the New Hope Children's hostel Supporters' Club amongst the local communities in Uganda to try and generate a regular income stream to assist with the basic costs of the hostel. We are now talking to all our Friends and Partners and hope that you will join in with us as well.
