Someone asked me why we still need HUGS and haven't we finished yet? Well its not really like that.
We published the Annual Report and Accounts for the Charity a couple of weeks ago and you can access it on the charity commission web site.
It tells you about the year to December 31st 2010.
But in summary our four projects in Uganda are as follows;
St Zoe's Primary School with 395 children
St Zoe's Secondary School with 140 children
Good Shepherd Special Needs School with 100 children
St Kizito's near Kampala with 356 children
Lira Babies Home with 50 babies and nursery class children.
That makes about 1041 in total.
Look at what has happened to the value of the Uganda Shilling in the last year. Uganda has to use this currency to buy all its imports and that included oil.
With the huge rate of inflation in Uganda this year their costs have risen alarmingly. And to make it worse although Uganda has not had the extremes of drought of Somalia there has been a really poor wet season which has meant that water may have to be purchased and carried by truck to some schools.
Your help makes all this possible.
