Fundraising for Afayo Foundation Uganda: Updated

May 31, 2010
One of the ministries I am trying to help is Afayo Foundation Uganda. I am attempting to raise $450 ASAP. So far we are at $130. You can donate by contacting Afayo Foundation Uganda or by clicking on the link on the right hand side. You need to scroll down to the fund raising thermometer and click the link above it.
Right now, the director of Afayo Foundation Uganda, Ivan Kusasira is trying to raise funds for the tuition of the children that are part of the foundation. They cannot attend school unless the tuition is met. Please prayerfully consider helping out. Money also goes for food, clothing and other necessities. I take nothing out of the donations though it does cost $45 just to wire the money to Uganda. Other than that expense all money goes directly to Afayo Foundation Uganda.
Dear friend,
blessings to you in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Hope all is going on well with you at this point in time.i know its a little hard considering the current times when the world is going through a crunch to mention this but its our calling to help out hte marginalised persons in our country especially socities.
we are kindly requesting you to, please, donate towards the education of the 35 vulnerable orphaned and abandoned children under our care as the Afaayo Foundation Uganda. we are still having a deficit of US$700.
you contribution in this regard will be highly appreciated.
God bless you so much for your consideration.
in His service
Ivan

Please consider helping

February 18, 2010
Please consider this opportunity this summer to help out at Afayo Uganda Foundation. If you are interested let me know and I will connect you to Ivan to work out the details. Also, there is a donation button on this site (the second one). If you donate, please send me a note so I can keep track of where the money came from.
Hello Carlos,
Praise Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God. Hope all is well with you. I know it has been sometime without hearing from us but its all because of the turbulence we have been going through as a ministry.
I am of the request, that if it would be possible, we would organize a fundraiser for the tuition of the children. We need US$ 1151 towards this alone.
Secondly, we need some volunteers or missionaries who would be willing to serve with us for sometime maybe this summer or earlier. They should be willing to serve with the administration as well as in the village. Whenever you have or can find someone who is willing or wishing to come over to Africa to serve with us; that will be awesome.
Concerning the website, it’s in its final stages of designing and we will need to raise some funds for the hosting which is about US$95.
As soon as we realize this, the website will be up in just the next 24 hours.
We still don’t have power and internet at the office. So whenever i get time to write to you, I do so.
Hope to hear from you soon.
God bless you so much.
Ivan

My heart’s plea

October 14, 2009
(Time for lunch and one sugarcane to share between us. Picture from Afayo Foundation Uganda)
Almost daily I am asked for help in some for or another. I believe it is because of iggyROCKS! and other things I do on the web that draw people to me. Most often I can tell they are cons yet very often they are not. To give you an idea of the type of requests I receive here is a recent one. I left it unedited. I believe the way it is written shows a sense of urgency.
Dear Carlor , GOD is great that is understanding has no limits that HE is building HIS kingdom and saving the sufferings through you may GOD bless you. i am
lufafa from Uganda writing to you now and i hope that this will find you doing well,I am the pastor of revival faith christians centre in uganda seeking for your support in bibles to enable me do the work with out facing some problems in the community of our lord jesus christ.
i am also the Director of revival care ministries Uganda with 35 orphans and 25 widows
this cause came up due to AIDS which is decimates the social fabric of community,and leaves the whole spiritual edifice teetering at the brink of total collapse .the haed fact that this pandemic lacks cure leaves the infected and the affected people in the situation so hopeless that this hollowness rubs off onto ,and seeps progressively into the individual .
this physical hollowness can easily translate into spiritual needs ,ultimately bringing in question the use of their GOD to them .And because vspiritual satisfaction is part and parcel of the entity of humanity ,provision of humanitarian assistance without it is more like preparing for journey to the land of nowhere for as it written in jams e 1:27 pure and undefiled religion before GOD the father is that which cares for the widows and orphans in their distress ,As Christians ,we can only put claim to the fact that we are true believers ,only when we exhibit unqualified compassion to those in need
This is actually the source
be blessed
It breaks my heart on many levels. One level that hurts me personally is that sometimes I know what the letter will say before I open it. I am not saying I am some psychic; rather often the ones I do not want to open are the ones that God hits me hardest with. Now, I have nothing to give these people. I have done a shoe/clothes drive at my church and we sent about 5 boxes to one similar ministry. Yet, there is so much more that needs to be done. Often just sending bibles would help. Yet, there are other needs. Some organizations need money for schools and other things.
I am just one person. I see a need that I cannot meet. I am saddened and wonder what can be done. Yet, if these people are drawn to me, then just maybe those that have a stirring in their heart will be draw to me also to let me connect them with those who need help. That is my only plan an only prayer. Please pray and let God move in you. I promise to be open in all ways to your ideas. Please… help. I am looking at starting a non profit organization so if anyone knows how to walk me through this please contact me.
James 1: 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

* Lufafa is part of another organization and not related to Afayo thought what they do is similar. I am still checking into Lufafa to see what I can do to help.
