There is an old African proverb “An empty stomach has no ears.” At Sixty Feet we know the value of living the good news in both word and deed.
Every year, hundreds of children in Uganda are swept off the streets for begging and locked up in the national children’s prison or remand centers. Many children arrive through the juvenile justice system prepared to serve their sentence. On occasion, a parent or step parent will bring a child and leave him at the facility so she or he can be punished for something done at home. These facilities are under-funded and under-resourced, resulting in difficult conditions. Your partnership with Sixty Feet will meet critical, essential needs including supplemental food, clothing, hygiene items and new mattresses for children to sleep.
