A look back over the last year of so

As we come to the end of 2016 we thought it might be nice to remind supporters of the projects which were completed or are currently being worked on. These are just the schools. We have covered the scholarships and bursaries in an earlier blog.

Good Shepherd staff accommodation which we helped with;

Good Shepherd St Gabriel's Home for Orphaned Children

St Gabriel's Home for Matron

Lira Girls Secondary School

Little Shepherd at Ntunguru South Uganda

HUGS would like to say a big thank you to all the people who helped to make these thins happen.

There are now about 1200 children attending the schools in Uganda and Rwanda.

Happy Christmas from the Trustees
