ANOTHER BABY RESCUED FROM DESPERATE CIRCUMSTANCES!

Last month we introduced you to Baby Connor, our first baby rescued from abandonment and placed in our safe home on Rwenjaza Hill. Connor has since been joined by Baby Kenneth (approx. 4 months old); both these adorable babies are now thriving under the love and care of their new mother, Deborah, and the team at FOP Uganda.

We give thanks for these precious little boys; thanks that their lives have been saved and that they have the opportunity to grow up in a safe environment knowing they are very much wanted and loved.

BREAKING NEWS!!!

 

A ONE MONTH OLD BABY HAS BEEN RESCUED FROM ABANDONMENT TO OUR SAFE HOME ON RWENJAZA HILL.

It is with great excitement, and thanks to God, that we announce the arrival of our first baby to our Bethel Babies Home in Uganda. Baby Connor (named by Peace Ruharuza) arrived into our care on Thursday.

He is a much anticipated, and already well loved, member of the FOP Family.

 

“You find families for those who are lonely” Psalm 68. 6a (CEV)

What a privilege to be part of this transformation for baby Connor; what a privilege for him to have a home and a family to belong to.

Thank YOU for your part in this. Your love, financial support, prayers and encouragement have played an enormous part in fulfilling the long held dream that Peace Ruharuza has carried to ‘provide centres of hope and transformation for orphaned and abandoned children’.

Connor is our ‘first born’.

As you can imagine the need is overwhelming. We know that there will be many more babies, orphaned or abandoned, who will join Connor at our babies home in the days, weeks and months ahead. They will come through referrals from police, probation and hospitals.

In essence our work has just begun.

Please pray for the FOP Uganda team and the new Mums as they enter this new phase of action and for Connor and the babies that will follow, that they will settle well into their new home knowing that they are loved and wanted.

If you would like to support the running of our babies home your donations would be warmly received. Every cent will make a difference.

Give A Child A Meal

As a result of so many children attending our FOP school without eating anything from their home we have started serving them porridge for lunch. Besides filling tummies this has resulted in reduced absenteeism and has encouraged more parents to send their children to school.

The cost for this feeding programme is NZ$600 per month.

Donations, or regular support, would be greatly appreciated to help us continue this much needed programme for up to 200 children.

(Please use FP as the payment reference).

 

 

Africa Song for Fountain of Peace

 

Together united as links in a chain, we can bring them fresh hope, make them smile again

Together united as links in a chain, we can bring them fresh hope, make them smile again

We at Fountain of Peace hope you are as inspired as we are by this song that our friend, Tania Sharr, wrote after spending time in Zambia and Uganda. Tania said “During that trip I was reminded that we all have a role to play, like links in a chain. If one of the links is missing then none of the others can do their job. We are all as important as the other. Together we can bring fresh hope and make them smile again.”

 

Lyrics by Tania Sharr. Music and vocals by Jay Weston.  Fountain of Peace has permission to use this song – thanks so much Tania and Jay.
