.

FIRSTLY:

This is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a child.

US Bureau for Labour Affairs indicates that about 5,000 children in Uganda beg, wash cars, scavenge, work as commercial sex workers and sell small items on the streets of Kampala

US Bureau for Labour Affairs indicates that about 5,000 children in Uganda beg, wash cars, scavenge, work as commercial sex workers and sell small items on the streets of Kampala. The number of street children has been rising steadily for the last five years.

 

An estimated half of Uganda's 1.8 million orphans have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS.

A report by the World Vision revealed that 62% of children, boys and girls, living in Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) or Refugee camps in northern Uganda were victims of sexual abuse.

 

Many report that they are compelled to have sex in exchange for basic needs.

There are currently 935,000 children living in Refugee camps in Uganda, according to the World Vision statistics. The two-decade long Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency has left tens of thousands of people dead and over 1.4 million people homeless in northern Uganda.

The LRA rebels have abducted thousands of children and have forced them to fight against the Ugandan Army and the Acholi people. The UN estimated some 25,000 children were kidnapped and enslaved by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels during their war with the government, but a recent World Bank report put the number at 60,000.

United Caribbean Trust (UCT) has been working in Uganda for over four years and our UCT representative, seen here, Pastor Abraham is based in our Headquarters in Kampala.

Pastor Abraham, seen here in the centre of the street children on one of the rubbish dumps in Kampala, pastors the church that the Hope African Children's Choir was birthed out of and has been instrumental in helping to organize them in their efforts to bring awareness to the plight of their brothers and sisters in DR Congo as well as on the streets of Kampala, Uganda.

Seen here Bishop Pinos and Jenny Tryhane with some of the children in the Hope African Children's Choir.

SECONDLY:

"The Village" a Centre for Empowerment of Refugee And Orphans (CERAO).

CERAO is a Congolese non-governmental organization, founded on March 30th 1996 in DR Congo to help and support children that are victims of war.

CERAO is responsible for the running of a rehabilitation camp for demobilized child soldiers in the outskirts of Beni in DRC. This camp, often termed “The Village”, has been established to receive approximately 50 boys but the situation has at times demanded twice that number.

THIRDLY:

Moringa Estate

UCT is believing that this DVD will also assist in establishing a Moringa Estate on the 46,000 acres of land that has recently been donated to the Trust by the DR Congo government.

In developing tropical countries, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers
