Meet Kate, Rahuma and Juliet, and their precious baby daughters from Uganda. Despite living under difficult circumstances of extreme poverty, these six-month-old babies and their moms are healthy, joyful and thriving.

Kate and Pamela

When we first met Kate, she was a single mother of two with a third on the way. Struggling on her own, she felt voiceless and alone. “When I joined the center, I felt like I couldn’t speak, I had lost hope. The father (to Pamela) had abandoned us. I was so hurt and didn’t even know if I could give birth. Compassion was my intervention,” states Kate. Just over six months later, Kate has found her voice! She is fully immersed in a loving community that empowers her, prays for her and cares for her and her family. Her baby Pamela is getting the love and care she deserves to grow healthy and strong.

Rahuma and Faith

Rahuma experienced a very difficult labor, but with the advocacy of Compassion staff member Lydia, she was able to get the medical intervention she needed to deliver a healthy baby girl. “When we come to the center each month, we start by doing devotions and are taught many different skills. Today, we are learning about saving money and micro-enterprise opportunities in our community. We’ve also been learning about nutrition and how we can prepare high protein porridge as she is getting ready to need something more than milk. The other thing they do here is weigh and measure Faith to make sure that she is meeting her milestones,” says Rahuma.

Juliet and Christine

Earlier in the year, baby Christine got the flu but was able to get a referral and go to the clinic with the help of the church. At Compassion, Juliet has been learning how to make a nutrient-rich porridge and about the importance of having a routine. “We’ve been learning each month about different skills,” says Juliet. “Today it’s about sewing [sanitary] pads for our monthly periods. They also check up on Christine by measuring and weighing her. I am now part of a class learning how to do hairdressing every Monday. You can see I’ve done Christine’s hair.”

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back to causes and charities through non-profit organizations. #GivingTuesday started in 2012 as a philanthrophic response to the widely-recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday kicks off the season of Christmas get-togethers, gifts, volunteering, and end-of-year giving, spotlighting charitable events and fundraising to millions worldwide.

This Giving Tuesday, give hope and life-saving care to mothers and babies. Your generous donation offers much-needed assistance to mothers and children in poverty. Thank you for your consideration and prayers, not just on Giving Tuesday, but every day.
