Stellah Kakura, a member of our congregation, is the founder of ‘Nyumba Ya Wazee‘, an NGO that provides help to old people in the Japanyundo region of Uganda. Through a day centre medicines, basic food and soap are provided to 35 elderly people.
Their work needs to be seen against the backdrop of the 25-year war in Northern Uganda, with its legacy of stress, oppression, poor housing and lack of food and medical care, all made worse by the aids problem.
St Boniface will be supporting the project with a fundraising lunch on Sunday 5 February. Financial contributions can also be made directly to the NGO’s bank account: BE 39 0004 2210 711 9, under the name Nyumba Ya Wazee, Haviklaan 37, 2100 Deurne.
