Help Keep Families Together - Support Achon Uganda Children's Fund
What is even better than placing orphans in new forever homes?...Preventing orphans from the beginning. UNICEF's definition of an orphan is a child who has lost their parents due to death. Per this definition, there are currently over 140million orphans worldwide, not including the millions who have been orphaned by abandonment or relinquishment. Of those 140million, 52million are in Africa. 2.5million are in Uganda.
We've recently learned of an incredible organization working to ensure residents of rural Uganda have access to quality healthcare. By doing so, Achon Uganda Children's Fund is saving lives of kids & parents alike, preventing illness that has been prolific in killing parents and leaving their children orphaned. Through their community health & maternity clinics in Awake Village (Uganda), AUCF is keeping countless families together.
Founded by former boy soldier-turned-Olympic runner Julius Achon, AUCF not only serves 500 patients per month at their medical & maternity center, but they also bring water, education and jobs to rural communities while helping create a sustainable model for a viable future. We are honored to support AUCF this month by donating all net proceeds from every purchase to help continue their vital work.
