Maya Angelou stated, “God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us-in the dreariest and dreaded moments-can see a possibility of hope.”
Persistence is bringing a rainbow to the Kabarole District of Fort Portal Uganda. Persistence has opened the doors of hope for a healthier community. Persistence opened someone’s heart to hear the cries of those who desperately need affordable medical attention. Persistence has birthed its way into a medical clinic that will treat those who, without attention, would die from treatable ailments like HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Diarrhea, and Tuberculosis.
The majority of us cannot imagine the darkness and hopelessness that exists in the lives of those who lack funds to receive medical attention, or cannot reach a medical clinic because it is not within a short walking distance.
Can you imagine—now—the bright light that has come into this community because they can see the answers to their prayers? What a joy it is to know what persistence has accomplished. But, because of the people’s persistence in asking for help—a hand up not a hand out—hope is a reality for the community of Rutorwa Village, Busuro Subcounty, Kabarole District of Fort Portal Uganda.

There is Hope for Healthy Living!
We give our funds out to so many things that will simply vanish into the air. So–why not give to something that will harvest fruit!!! Have you ever thought about investing your funds in an orphan who would love to receive an education???!!!
Take this opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child. This difference will impact a child and eventually–a community. There is a population of over 2500 orphans in the Fort Portal Uganda community alone. And, this number is increasing because of malaria, motorbike and car accidents, and HIV/AIDS.
Put your funds to work by investing in an orphan. Visit our web site and Donate Now! An investment of $30 a month will begin their education process.
Can the orphans count on you to make a difference in their lives?

While visiting Fort Portal Uganda we went to see a dear friend who was an elderly woman because we heard she was sick in bed. When we arrived at her home, a caretaker told us she was vomiting and had diarrhea and that we might not want to come close to her.
Our group went in to see her any way because of our relationship with her–she was like a mother to us. Yes, she was so sick her head would hardly lift from the pillow. The decision was quickly made to transport her to Kampala, the capital city where there was a large hospital to care for her.
Why was this lady still at home in bed so seriously sick? Why didn’t she go to a neighborhood clinic? You see, if you do not have the funds to pay the clinic for your examination you will not be seen! So–the leaders of our group paid for her ambulance transportation to the hospital which was about five hours away. But that is not all. Because she was gravely ill, they also had to pay for a doctor to travel with her to the hospital. Then–wait, that is not all, they had to pay for her medical attention at the hospital. You see, if you do not have the funds to receive medical attention, they also will not treat you.
This event brought to realization the conveniences that we have in the U.S. And the inconveniences that exit for impoverished families and communities. Our U. S. citizens can run to the nearest county hospital and receive assistance knowing the person does not have any funds. Then you have to think about what you would do in a situation like this.
This woman was simply going to stay at home and, probably, get so dehydrated that she would slowly die. Why? Because she had no other choice! That is reality in third world countries. That is the cruel reality in families where there are no funds to receive medical attention. That is one of the reasons why they have so many orphans.
You ask, “How can I help?” Be a part of something bigger than you and me! Join us as we move to impact this community by building a Medical Clinic in Fort Portal Uganda.
Visit our web site at www.hhcharities.org under Donate and be a part of our gala event, “What if…?”
This event will be held on Saturday, October 24th at The Eisemann Performance Center. Our attendees will be able to witness the Medical Clinic building progress and receive facts on what supplies and medical assistance will be needed to efficiently run the clinic.
Don’t miss your opportunity to impact lives!
Join us as we share the Holiday Season with the orphans of Fort Portal, Uganda. We generally purchase a cow, clothing, and additional vegetables for them to enjoy. But—this year HHCharities is giving you a chance to give outside of your family, friends, and relatives. I know—you are too excited, right???!!!
There are over 750 orphans waiting for us to include them in our sharing throughout this Season.
Remember our plea for you to donate to our organization during the North Texas Giving Day on August 18th? Well, we raised $180 and, yes, we say thank you because even this small amount will support six (6) students with monthly education funds in Uganda.
Our challenge to you—wait for it—match the amount of $180 and help us raise $2500. REALLY! This amount will purchase two (2) cows, bales of clothing, and the fixins’! Then, you can pat yourself on the back because you have Gone Beyond Your Personal Borders!
We are looking for your match at www.hhcharities.org/Donate.
The orphans LOVE the Holidays, too!
There is always an opportunity to give back to your community or to those who are so disadvantaged that they cannot afford an education. Friends, we all have events put before us that says “it is time to open your hearts and give back!”
Speaking personally, I can remember several times that friends–and those I did not know–gave to me and my family because they had a heart to give. What about you? Just look back over your personal lives and remember those who have taken time out to give to you or sacrifice their time to help you. There is a great joy in knowing you helped someone by reaching out to them and giving financially or physically.
Dallas remains the second largest city in Texas that receives the highest quantity of refugees/immigrants in our communities. Our organization assists with literacy programs that lifts them to another level encouraging their spirits to seek employment, learn how to speak English and to prepare to take their Naturalization test for US Citizenship.
The orphans of Fort Portal, Uganda still number over 2500 with a population of less than 10% who are able to attend school to receive an education that will change their lives and the lives of their community. We are also working to build a Medical Clinic in this community to treat non-emergency cases which will help those who could have died from treatable ailments.
