As you can imagine, children living in poverty and malnourishment in very poor countries are at extreme risk of getting a very difficult disease such as Cerebral Palsy (CP). At The Everett and Austin Project we are trying to help change this narrative and bring relief to those who are suffering – right now. We are hoping to inspire change so that families in Africa are less at risk.

Through your generous donations we have been able to provide our second set of special equipment for 12 vulnerable children currently suffering in desperate need in and around Soroti District in east-central UGANDA in East Africa. Along with the equipment, we also provided 12 food packages as well to the families.

Partnering with our sister organization, Desert Seed Foundation, on the ground in Uganda we have been able to serve the following 12 families. What a joy to be of such useful service in the work of the Lord. Musasizi Heavens Dennis worked so hard on getting these constructed with a local carpenter at a very nice, low cost. Stephen Okiror helped coordinate our efforts, as well.

RECIPIENTS 

The following 12 children received special equipment and a small food package from us within the last week. Here is their picture with their new equipment and food package that they have received within this last week:

FOURTY-THREE

Counting the first 12 CP Chairs with these 12 walkers and CP Chairs (6 walkers and 6 CP chairs makes 12 combined this time), and also counting the 17 wheelchairs and 1 additional wheelchair and 1 other pediatric walker that we were able to give away, our TOTAL of special equipment that we have given away so far as an organization is 43 so far. FORTY-THREE!

  • 18 Wheelchairs
  • 7 Walkers
  • 18 CP Chairs

We only started as an organization a little over 2 years ago on October 17, 2018. Not bad for the first 2+ years of work. Great job everyone! Praise the Lord! 🎉 🎉 🎉

I'm a born-again christian, sold out to serving the needs of the less fortunate and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I founded The Everett and Austin Project in October 2018 to honor my 2 boys posthumously by helping people living in poverty going thru Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. My sons each died of Duchenne, Austin in 2012 at age 16 and Everett in 2017 at age 22.

    1. It’s a pleasure working with you sir. I am looking forward to the next set of 12 equipment order that we will help together. Did I get all of the pictures and captions correct on this blog?
