As I sat on the sofa of the Missionaries’ Inn in Ateiku, Ghana, an African news channel reports on the staggering number of children and adults who suffer from various deformations and irregularities in their bodies; some stemming from lack of proper nutrition and medical care as infants in their mothers’ wombs and others from no availability of surgery critical to make corrections. It brought to mind the information that was shared with those who attended our Gala Event, “What if…?” held in October. It was an evening filled with facts, photos, videos, and encouragement supporting the necessity for a Medical Clinic in Fort Portal, Uganda but, at the same time, reinforcing HHCharities’ purpose—with conviction—as we work towards a healthier future for the people of Uganda.
DeLores Pressley, Author, Speaker, Coach, and CEO and Founder of The UP (Undeniably Powerful) Woman, skillfully led our evening program agenda.
There were two dynamic presenters that truly brought the “Realities of Medical Challenges” to life highlighting the people of Uganda. Our first Guest Presenter, Dr. Isador Lieberman, Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics at the Texas Presbyterian Hospital and Founder of Uganda Spine Surgery Mission—enlightened us with his mission for the people of Uganda. He performs spinal surgeries on the deformed bodies of the people. The doctor’s facts, photos, videos and surgical success stories while in Uganda enlightened us and reminded us of how we take for granted the medical facilities and care givers that are so readily available to us while those in impoverished countries are suffering from lack of medical care and the financial means to even seek assistance. This nudge of remembrance supported HHCharities mission—to help the widows and orphans.
Our Motivational Presenter, Roland Parrish, President and CEO of 26 Parrish McDonalds Restaurants, Chairman and CEO of National Black McDonald’s Operators Association (NBMOA)—encouraged us to provide and lead the way for those who are disadvantaged. He also shared that we need to “block the naysayers” and encourage the supporters who have a heart to fulfill the hope that lies within the Ugandans—the dream of a Medical Clinic in their own community of Fort Portal. Parrish’s encouragement was fortified when he doubled his sponsorship donation to HHCharities to assist in funding the building of the Medical Clinic.
If you missed the Gala—Lieberman and Parrish did a marvelous job bringing to life the “Realities of Medical Challenges” for the Ugandans!

We often think that our small contribution will not make a difference but when a group of “caring hearts” contribute to the same cause, impact becomes a reality!
A group of our directors are now in Fort Portal, Uganda and have witnessed what people can do when they just care enough to give financially to the underserved people of Africa.
Through our campaign with GoFundMe, we raised over $4,800. HHCharities was able to purchase 750 flips flops, 2 bales of clothing, 200 pounds of sugar, and 95 Bibles. All was distributed among more than 1,000 people in the community of Fort Portal. What a sight to see! The children were more than happy to receive, for some, a pair of shoes; for others, they were able to replace their worn out pair. The women received sugar and clothes for their children. The men received tee shirts that were donated through a tee shirt manufacturer in Dallas, Texas.
Grateful hearts in Uganda thank you for your generosity and spirit of giving. You did make an impact for these people! Thank you!

Leaving Your Legacy
What will others say about you when you have done all you can on this side of the dirt? Think about how much you have given of yourself—mentally, physically, and financially—to others to help them get on a better, more helpful path in life. How often have you given someone a “hand up” and not necessarily a “hand out”—have you???

Most of Africa’s population lives on an income of less than $1.50 per day. This fact indicates the inability of billions of people to afford the basic necessities of life including food, housing, and clothing…Millions are infected or dying each year due to the spread of diseases contracted through unprotected feet…
