Christmas Appeal 2018 Launch


Monday 26th November sees the launch of this year’s Christmas Appeal – Giving Gifts of Hope. With your help, over the past few Christmases we have been able to help orphans, vulnerable children and communities in Uganda, and this year we aim to do more of the same.

Why are we doing this?

In a population of 39 million, 33% of Ugandans live below the international poverty line of $1.90 per day which makes Christmas extremely difficult. The food packages we have supplied have made a huge difference.

Justine’s daughter is enrolled on Tŷ Cariad Africa’s Community Education Support Project and has her school fees paid. In the previous years, she has had to take out small loans from friends for Christmas food, but last year she was saved from that pressure. She was very happy and appreciative when she received the Christmas Food Package. This is what Justine had to say…


What are we providing?

We asked the social workers in Uganda to make a Christmas list based on the needs of the children, and we therefore need to raise £3,000 to provide:-

21 Pairs of school shoes (£15 each) – for 21 community children supported on the Community Education Support Project. Many currently go to school with no shoes, or with worn out and broken shoes.


37 Food Packages (£36 each) – for community families, families of resettled children, and families of staff who give their time each Christmas. Each package includes bread, sugar, soda, eggs, spices, margarine, beef, chicken, pasta, cooking oil, milk, and contains enough food for 20 meals.


Christmas Party (£10 each) – a party at a water and play park for all the children at the Children’s Home, and those supported in the community (75 in total). Also included is chicken and chips, and soda.


Christmas Food (£10 each) – Christmas food for the Children’s Home for the Christmas Season’s celebrations – enough to feed 60 people.

None of this will be possible without your donations, so please help us make a difference
