Sorry cannot get picture on Website.
Allan Kisakye, and his fiance, Harriet.   They are planning to be married Saturday, Dec.3rd, 2011 this year at Lubumba Community Church at the EWCV property.   They would like to have all the children (72) of the three families attend the wedding as well as having boys and girls as attendants.   They will be having their Introduction Ceremony the day before the wedding at Entebbe near Kampala.I remind you that Uncle Allan was the person responsible for bringing each of the 72 children to us from the villages and for coming with them to EWCV through the gate here in Soweto.    He was their first contact with EWCV and the first employee of EWCV.   Now we have 46 employees.   We will set up some tents for the reception which will be held after the wedding beside the church at the property.   This will be the first wedding held in our little church at the property of EWCV.   It will be an historical event for EWCV.
Annual Feeding and Gift Bag Programs
We will be having our three annual Christmas feedings for the children including our own children of the three families and
the children from Lubumba Community and surrounding areas.   We will also be needing to make up Gift Bags for the children
from the communities.   These children will come three days before Christmas to receive their bags to take home to share with
their family.   This food is intended to give them some food for their Christmas Day especially.   Food Bags will also go with our 72 children from
the three families when the go back to spend a holiday with their former guardian for about five weeks.   We are looking at a total of 300 gift bags.We are going to ask people who wish to donate towards this program $30 CDN per child per food bag.   They need to send the Canadian donations to Pat Bates the latest October 20th like last year so that she can get the cheques to the bank and get the money to us for us to be able to shop for these items early in December.    During the last two years God has provided enough money to cover all the extra food that we needed for the Christmas feedings and gift bags through the kind and generous financial assistance from many of you.   We will need to purchase the items in bulk ahead of time before the shops raise their prices for Christmas season.   Last month in August alone inflation rose to over 21% in Uganda.    The month before it had raised by 19%.The gift bags include:  Rice, Sugar, Flour, Bread, Margarine, Cooking Oil, Matches, Beans, Washing and Bathing Soap, and a Fun Gift for Children.
