instructing our caretakers on Coronavirus
Our school St John Primary School in Ttamu was closed after government through the Ministry of Education and Sports issued guidelines to close all academic institutions on 18 March 2020 this has greatly affected all the learning activities of our children.
In order to ensure safety and health of our children, we visited all the caretaker families to fully educate them about the COVID 19 and all the safety and health guidelines which were issued by the Ministry of Health. This include encouraging families to ensure children stay home at all times, every family member washes hands frequently with soap, in case any member develops any sign or symptom we are informed in a timely manner. This was done successfully by our team and our children have enjoyed the educative sessions on COVID 19.
All children who live at our home have been receiving sessions on how the disease spreads and how we can prevent it.
The ministry has distributed items like food, soap, hand washing facilities both to our home and caretaker families. We remain thankful to the Lord for providing for us during this period especially through our donors.
As the Ministry, we still feel the pain of not being able to attend church services as a family. But we continue to encourage families and all our children to organize prayer time on a daily basis. This has kept us strong and connected even when there is limited physical contact.
We still face a big challenge of food and other basic supplies both at our home and in different caretaker families. Indeed at some points life for us has not been a good one. But the grace of God has kept us strong up to this point.
We expect that when the lockdown ends, we shall return to normal and continue to serve the Lord. In the meantime we are using this period to teach our children the Word of God and equip them with other skills.
Our Executive director said: “The health of our children and the wider community is our priority, and that is where our focus is at the moment. Our thoughts are with all people who have been affected by the COVID 19."
We remain strong and believe we shall overcome this situation through Christ who protects us.
Words From Our Director
We are glad we are still moving with you even during this unpredicted period of Covid 19 pandemic. Your donations and support have enabled Chronicles of love ministry to continue transforming the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.
We believe everyone deserves the best chance in life. That’s why we continue to support vulnerable children through feeding them, educating them, providing medical services and house them. As we do this we have witnessed the truly amazing things that you are making possible through our donations.
In order to convey the impact you are making among the vulnerable children in Uganda, I want to share with you some verses from the bible which have been guiding us in everything do as ministry.
In Matthew 25, Jesus says “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me. ...I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me! (Verses 25:35-36,40 NLT).
Through your donation and support we are able to feed orphans and vulnerable children, we are able to treat them when they are sick, we are housing them, we dress them and through Christ who empowers us, we are transforming their lives.
At chronicles of love we are so excited that your donation has not only made physical impacts but it has also made a spiritual impact in lives of these children for Jesus Christ.
We can never thank you enough for your donation and support. We continue to ensure that all your efforts towards this ministry is affecting lives every single day. Together (you...and me...and God), we are able to reach “the least of these” in so many wonderful ways. God bless you!
