- 2,500,000 orphans struggle to survive in Uganda
- 20% of children aged 6-17 are orphans
- Half of these lost parents to HIV/AIDS
- No other nation has a higher percent orphaned by AIDS
- The LRA left many others parentless
- Who will care for them?
Orphan care will be provided for up to 300 children at a time through the construction of 35 homes, each housing 8-10 orphans. Currently, 21 homes are filled with children. Ugandans are employed to serve as House Parents in a family environment for each home. Widows fulfill this role in 90% of the currently occupied homes, allowing Restoration Gateway (RG) to provide for widows as well. All material and health needs are provided for the children.
How can you help?
DONATE toward the construction of an Orphan Home.
Each home costs only $30,000 to build. Perhaps you, your church, or your organization/business would like to donate some or all of the money needed to build an orphan home. Your group is welcome to donate the money to build a home, then go to RG to help with the construction of it. Information about how to donate can be found on our giving page.
