Try to imagine...

The area occupied by this country is
slightly smaller than the state of Oregon, USA.

... Or for you Europeans: slightly bigger than HALF of Germany

...or slightly smaller than New Zealand

There are 3.5 million orphans in this country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(total population of New Zealand is 4 million!!)

Try to get your head around this staggering number....................

... or what about your heart???

... and ask God to allow you feel what HE FEELS about this statistic - - -

Each baby/child has a face, a name, a story and LONGS to be loved, cherished, cared for... be part of a family...

United Nations has stated that Uganda is one of the world’s most dangerous places for children to live.

Over 137 children out of every 1,000 born in Uganda die before their 5th birthday. (UNAIDS/WHO Statistics 2007)
