How has a recent eviction in Kampala affected Compassion-assisted children in Uganda?
Advisory: Homes Demolished in Uganda

  |   Posted: July 12, 2011

Recently, people from Nakawa and Naguru, communities located on the outskirts of Kampala, were evicted.  Their homes were demolished to make room for construction development. 

The families of almost 100 Compassion-assisted children from three child development centers in Kampala were left homeless because of the eviction.

The three affected child development centers are:

  • UG-400 Ntinda Child Development Center

  • UG-440 St. Peter’s Naguru Child Development Center

  • UG-531 Lugogo Child Development Center

In response, Compassion Uganda provided the following to the affected families:

  • temporary shelter

  • rent

  • food

  • transportation to the temporary shelters

Please pray for the children and families who were forced into homelessness. Pray for God’s provision to come quickly and for transitions into new homes to take place.

Compassion Uganda will keep us updated as more information is available.

Compassion International will contact you if your sponsored child has been affected.
