Father Christmas 2020

By | January 20, 2021

What an amazing Christmas we had! 157 disabled kids received a “Father Christmas” gift package or cash from The Everett and Austin Project. We collaborated with these sister organizations in Uganda and Kenya to make this happen:

  1. Sapphire Foundation (Uganda)
  2. Desert Seed Foundation (Uganda)
  3. Love Touch Ministries (Uganda)
  4. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Kenya (Kenya)

We could not have done this without the fantastic leaders on the ground in these wonderful organizations! 

Here are some of the highlights of our “Father Christmas” outreach for Christmas 2020. Thank you to all who participated and donated to help make this such a huge success! 

Thanks to our partnership with our sister organizations Love touch ministries, Desert seed foundation and Sapphire…

      Awesome Dennis. I do love working with you and Desert Seed Foundation. Stephen just sent me a list of the next set of 12 special equipment for the kids out there in Soroti that you are working with. How much do you need again? Was it 90000 per equipment plus fees?

        Initially it was 80,000 for an equipment but when we introduced in cushioning and some other special adaptations, the cost went to 90,000, then 30000 per child for food and nutritional support and withdrawal charges coming to a total of around 1453000 uganda shillings.
        Thanks

          So we need about $404 for this set of 12. Ok let’s be in prayer. Thanks for helping me raise the funds for this great cause. 🙏🏼❤️

    There is no Christmas holiday with no love and give back. I’m so happy to see Father Christmas Duchene gave back to all those families and children that would miss out on having a wonderful holiday. Lord bless all those who donated and gave in to make that day colorful.
    Lord bless you all.

    Yes Tim, it changed from 80000 to 90000 when we introduced in special adaptations and cushioning per equipment, then we had calculated 30000 for food and nutritional support and may be around 13000 transaction charge, totally to 1453000.
    Thanks
