In 2012, college students Cook and Klein will follow Amanda and Kristin’s precedent. They will visit Hope Care Child Program in Bulanga, Uganda and bring more supplies of beds and other materials for the children.
When you hear of college students, the first thing that comes to your mind is the dizzying blur of books and parties. You imagine that the only time the college students take a break from it is when and when they need to replenish their financial life before Friday night’s party.
Well, meet Amanda and Kristin, college students from Point Lama Nazarene University. Through their initiative, they managed to raise 8000 USD in support of the 150 children of Hope Care Child Program in Bulanga, Uganda.
They did this through their trendy Love Uganda line of t-shirts. With the money raised, they were able to buy beds, mattresses, bedding, pillows and mosquito nets for the children’s home.
1. The old beds: no mattress, bedding, or mosquito net 2. Two boys slept per bed. In the new beds, each boy gets their own
1. Katherine and Ruth slept on this mat on the floor before their new bed. The mat was urine saturated and Ruth kept getting malaria since they slept without a mosquito net. 2. Katherine and Ruth's first night in their new bed!
1. All 57 beds ready to move into the new boys dorm! 2. The mattresses being unloaded. The children didn't even take the plastic covers off because they wanted to keep them new!
