Our Family Continues To Grow.

Meet our latest addition – our 46th baby.

This beautiful little girl has been with us for over a month now and despite her tragic start to life, she is doing well.

Little one you are loved, you are wanted and your life matters.

Gumboots for Uganda!

Look what arrived at the office this week!

A big shout out to Skellerup Red Band for their donation of 3 boxes (30 pairs) of Red Band Gumboots for our toddlers in Uganda.
We are so appreciative.

Our next team travelling to Uganda will take the gumboots with them, so expect to see upon their return, photos of Red Bands on little feet.

Reminiscing, giving thanks and looking to the future!

Jane Laurie, our Executive Director, and Peace Ruharuza, founder of Fountain of Peace Children’s Foundation (FOP) stood on the hillside overlooking the FOP Children’s Village in rural Western Uganda recently; both thankful, and in awe, of what can happen when you say ‘yes’ to a God given dream.

It was in 2005 that Peace shared her dream of FOP with Jane; a dream that Jane instinctively knew she would be connected to, yet having no idea how.

Fast forward to 2012; Jane resigned from her role at Tearfund NZ (a job she loved) and began the first steps in establishing the NZ ministry of Fountain of Peace Children’s Foundation. It came with a bizarre mix of excitement for what could be and a slight apprehension of the unknown. 

 What a journey thus far, but friends it is only the beginning.

Thank you to all who support this organisation as together we are making a difference, now and for the future, generating hope and transformation.

We have a new baby!

Mid-April we received a precious little three week old girl.

Despite her tragic start to life we declare: Little girl, you are loved, you are wanted and your life matters. We look forward to all of the positive possibilities in your future.

We would appreciate your prayers for her and for those working on her behalf.

Another baby!

We have a new baby boy. He is three months old and was recently rescued from sad and tragic circumstances; enough to say he was found to be severally malnourished, weighing only 3kgs.
Already we can see hope in his wee eyes!

Little one, you are loved, you are wanted and your life matters!
