Voices of Uganda: Deborah

As we spoke, she was either covering her face and giggling, or swelling with tears. Deborah is a woman of great joy and compassion, and I liked her right away. She works twelve-hour days, from 6 AM to 6 PM, as one of the cooks for the Mukono Healing Home in Uganda. For eight years, she has been working hard at this job. And to her work, she pours out an abundance of skill and heart.

Voices of Uganda: Joyce

She knows the kids, their names, their personalities, and how many nappies they wear each day. The children in her care are vulnerable. They have significant medical needs and have suffered the trauma of being separated from their parents. But she shows up and is there for them, day after day. She’s a familiar, dependable person in their lives. Joyce oversees the mountainous volume of laundry at the Mukono Healing Home.

Voices From Uganda: Victor

He sweeps, straightens, wipes down toys, and takes out the garbage. In a home full of babies, there is much to do, and his work is vital. Essential workers. Our focus on them is sharper right now, isn’t it? COVID-19 has renewed our gratitude for those who provide the basic services that our world needs. We have a stronger grasp on how life would slow to a stop without the services they provide. And for a home full of vulnerable children in Uganda, there are many essential workers. Victor is the custodian at the Mukono Baby Home, a healing home which is supported in part by Love Without Boundaries.

Sending Life-Changing Wheelchairs To Kids In Uganda

We were recently able to deliver four wheelchairs to children with special needs in Uganda. Although it took over a year to get them there, their arrival has been truly life-changing for a couple of the children in particular at the Mukono Healing Home. Andre has been so excited to be able to get around quickly. He can push himself a bit, but he truly loves to be pushed around.

Family Reunification in Uganda

Did you know that around the world, up to 90% of children living in orphanages have at least one known living parent or relative? The sad reality is that the majority of children living in institutional care have been relinquished due to immense poverty. Love Without Boundaries has always been fully committed to helping orphaned children. In countries where we work, like Cambodia and Uganda, many parents leave their children at orphanages in pure desperation from not being able to provide them with food or education.

Twins Ana and Lisa

Sweet Ana and her twin sister Lisa came to the Mukono Baby home in January under very sad circumstances. Their mother had died soon after their birth from post-partum complications, possibly as a result of malaria. When the twins first entered the Mukono Baby Room, blood work indicated that Lisa was suffering from congenital malaria, in which the parasites are transmitted either during pregnancy or during labor. Congenital malaria can result in prematurity and slower weight gain in newborns.

Flower Girl Lily

Late last year, a baby girl was found abandoned and extremely malnourished in central Uganda.  She suffered from a severe protein malnutrition that caused her face and body to swell and look puffy. Soon after, Lily came to live at the Tender Hearts Baby Home and is now being cared for in LWB’s Mukono Baby Room. Despite her hard beginnings, Lily has adjusted […]

Meet Vera

Baby Vera spent the first months of her life living with her elderly great-grandmother. Kinship ties in Uganda are quite strong, and this caring woman tried her best to care for her little great-granddaughter after her parents disappeared and left her in their care. When baby Vera was nine months old, her great-grandmother was no longer physically able to care for her, and she was taken into care at the Tender Hearts Baby Home.

Sweet Vera was understandably shy and clingy upon her arrival to the home. Read more
