The Need

Africa’s children are crying out for help.   There are an estimated 50 million orphans in Africa with about 15 million being   AIDS orphans. Uganda alone has 2.5 million orphans, about half caused by their   parents dying from AIDS. Moreover, children are simply abandoned at hospitals   or in other places by parents who cannot care for them. While the need is   overwhelming, we can make a difference.

One of the local   village children that will likely be assisted looks on while the Coxes survey   the land and discuss plans for the children’s village. Within minutes after coming to the site, the Coxes were   surrounded by about six children. They were curious about the visit,   especially seeing a “mzungu” (white person). After talking with the children,   the Coxes learned that several of them are orphans. All of them were bare foot   and some only had what amounted to rags as clothes. By assisting Bread of Life   African Ministries, you can help alleviate the suffering of children in Uganda.
