Child Life Change is an NGO estabilished in 1998 to provide support to a wide range of charitable causes including but not limited to; Children, Foster Familys, Refugees, Women, and more. Our current focus is now children living in the streets and those coming from struggling families.
Accordning to the World Health Organisation, all children deserve a healthy start in life. However, there are far too many starving children within Uganda for whom hunger is a constant, chronic pain.
There is over 28 million children experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition across Africa. Stunting prevents children from developing to their full potential mentally and physically, and it is largely irreversible.
Stunting is not the only form of malnutrition that affects children. Children who have severe acute malnutrition, the deadliest form of extreme hunger, can succumb to the disease in just a few days. Children who die in this way suffer immensely as their vital organ functions slow down and eventually stop.
It doesn’t have to be this way for children in Africa, but we need your help now.
Our parents brought us and left us in Kampala at a bus station. We didn’t know where to go or have a place to sleep and we started sleeping in door ways of different shops and eating from food dropping on the floor. But when we met someone from Child Life Change, they bought us new clothes and introduced us to our new foster family who love us so much. Thank you Child Life Change.
When my parents got killed in the land slides that affected my entire village, I had now where to go in fact at some point I felt like taking my own life. One Sunday evening, I was walking around the streets begging for food and a car stopped by the road and picked me up and took me to a restaurant and told Child Life Change my story. Today leaving healthy and happy with my new foster family.
I lost my entire family during an attack on my village by the LRA rebals when I was 4 years old. I had no where to go and I just kept running until a local church leader took me to Child Life Change who transformed my life. Today I have a roof over my head and I am currently preparing for my O Level Examinations. Thank you so much Child Life Change for your care and support.
