See How They Grow... Vitamin Project
Currently we are working on a Vitamin Project. Our kids nutrition is greatly depleted and on top of that the food they do receive is the same nutritional value everyday. So building their system up with Vitamins is critical.
Those little vitamins are going to go a long way. All of our students and the children of our staff will take priority, then the clinic where I will see the horrendously sick children and babies. The pills will be divided and crushed for the little ones. We will make it work since baby liquid vitamins are by their nature, heavy and expensive to ship over.
But it is doubtful my pockets won’t ever be without those little jewels… I know the numbers are over whelming, but I just don’t know how to say no to the children along the roads and in the villages.
And apparently I have a lot of tremendously wonderful Facebook friends that want to keep me handing out vitamins whenever possible.
We have created a A Message Board on Facebook. This was just created to keep in contact with supporters who want to be directly tied to this project. Find us on Facebook and let us know if you would like to be on the message for updates and details and we will add you!
There will also be other ways of contributing besides the donate button at the bottom of this page. There is also a way to donate through purchasing the Vitamins on your own and being shipped to one of our directors, Jessica, so she can ship larger quantities at once. You can purchase through the Amazon Wish List we have created here Vitamin Wish List. The reason we chose this is because there are different quantities at different amounts. This has been helping people determine the amount they are able to give.
There will be updates on needs and our progress once I am on the ground.
As always…you guys amaze and bless me.

Medical, Nutrition and Dental
Most of the people in the remote regions of the world have never received medical care or have seen a doctor. Women frequently go into labor and give birth on the side of the road.
Sadly, many children and adults suffer and die each day from preventable diseases. It is the goal of Uganda N.O.W. Outreach to provide medical services by bringing trained doctors and nurses to the people. We have met the initial goal of building a medical/dental clinic. Our next step is equipping the clinic with physicians, nurses and dentists. Proper nutrition and regular de-worming and dental care is an effective yet simple way for the people of these villages to thrive and grow. The sponsorship program is one of the most effective tools in the prevention of disease and malnutrition in our children.

Dental Hygene is a major issue and some of our Ugandan friends never receive basic dental care. We have been fortunate to have a dentist travel with us on some of our trips to provide Dental Care.
