Meet Timothy and Benjamin


These two warriors were found in Bududa that is located in Eastern Uganda. They were left to survive for themselves after a devastating mudslide flattened their village destroying everything in it including their family. They are survivors, and with the aid of the The Mupenzi children’s home Project in Uganda they have a chance to learn, live, and obtain happiness. It does not take much to help these warriors live a normal life. They have a warrior spirit, but they should be able to live as children.  Your clothes that are in good condition, books, paper, toys, or a simple donation as little as 20$ can go a long way in helping these boys feel safe, secure, and happy!  They did the hard part they survived! Now it is your turn.

Meet Jeff the LionHeart

I would like you to meet a very courageous and strong young man named Jeff.  If you list antonyms for courageous like bold, brave, dauntless, doughty, fearless, gallant, greathearted, gutsy, gutty, and heroic. Jeff could be described by all of these attributes! If I had to pick an adjective to describe Jeff, it would be lionhearted! Jeff has the heart of a lion because at 4 years old he has experienced more tribulations then most people experience in a lifetime. This handsome little lion was born with HIV and he has no parents. He is a resident at the Mupenzi Children’s Home, and is one of the many inspirational children you will meet on this blog. He does not let his condition define him, and he is laughing and smiling through his ordeals as he tries to have as normal a childhood as he can. He likes to play football but there are times when he is just quiet and keeps to himself.  Jeff does not need pity, because he has a lion’s heart and he will face his destiny with the ferociousness of a lion on the hunt in the Serengeti.  What he could use is some help, some prayers, and some inspiration. You can help by sending clothing, toys, school supplies, or financial donations. You can send them directly to

What is the Most Powerful Gift You Can Give A Child?

The most powerful gift you can give a child is a reason to smile. If a child is smiling, they are not thinking about what ever maybe wrong in their life at that particular moment. At the Mupenzi Children’s Home, volunteers work effortless and selfishly to ensure that the children in their care have a reason to smile. If you look at these children, they are not any different from any child in the world. They want to learn, laugh, and feel secure. Simple activities like playing with paper airplanes or jump rope can provide a child with a temporary escape from the harsh realities of their life. Clothes you thing are old and in need of the trash can maybe a treasure to these little angels. They remind us of what God teaches us. Materialistic accumulation is not important or needed to make you happy. God teaches the meek and promise them an inheritance that surpasses any item one can obtain on Earth. It is easy to help the Mupenzi Children’s Home, all it takes is a little effort and a lot of caring. You can find them on Facebook at You can visit their website that is still under construction at
