Build A Wall to Keep 47 Ugandan Children Safe
A high security wall needs to be built to ensure the safety of the 47 children currently living at the Children's Home in Namugongo, Uganda. The existing chain-link fence is in a bad state, and even if it was to be repaired, would be inadequate. Victory Child Care Project - Ty Cariad Children's Home is a childcare institution approved by the Ugandan Government. It currently looks after 47 children at the home, and their needs include love, security, food and nutrition, and education.
With your help, we can build a security wall 40 metres long by 2.1 metres high (132 feet long x 7 feet high), with security wire on top. This will ensure that the children are kept safe and secure at all times. The safety of the children and staff is paramount. We have guards working both day and night so that the current risk is reduced, but there is still a great need to replace the existing fence with a security wall as soon as possible.
£5,808 - £44 per foot of safety
As well as the 47 children currently receiving care at the home, more children will benefit in the years to come from the safety and security provided by your contribution towards building this wall. Over 140 children have received residential care at the home since the beginning of 2016, and so the numbers of beneficiaries will increase year after year. Keeping everyone at the home safe and secure is a basic human right, and our top priority.
