HOPE FOR MITYANA STREET CHILDREN AND ORPHANS is a non-government organization dedicated to providing shelter and care to street children and orphans in Mityana Uganda.
Since 2016, we have been helping communities in rural areas, especially families infected with HIV/AIDS in the Mityana district Uganda. We provide shelter, food, clean water, education and care to local orphans and street children. We also work to lighten the financial burden of vulnerable parents and students in paying school fees and utility bills, and of families struggling with HIV. We believe that every child deserves hope, health and happiness, and that every human being deserves dignity.
IMPACT OF COVID-19:
Before the pandemic, we were home to 115 orphaned and abandoned children. After the outbreak, the number of children seeking help doubled. Many families have reached out to us, as well, asking for food and resources. We now find ourselves supporting 239 children who have been orphaned or endangered by illness, death or poverty.
— To ensure that every child has a chance at a bright future
— To make sure that every child gets a proper, standard education, no matter the circumstances of his or her parents
— To help vulnerable children live healthy lives and experience a normal childhood
— To show that anyone can make a difference, and that you don’t need to have much to give
To affirm that God loves all people, no matter their category or class. We believe all children are deserving of safety, health care, food, shelter, and a basic education… as well as love and support. We also believe that support should extend to all those struggling in our communities. Most families in which a family member is infected with HIV end up isolated, lacking necessities and medical care, but also lacking community. We are here to be their support and their community. Jesus said “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy” (Matthew, 5:7). We humbly strive to offer mercy, in the hope that mercy will come back to us one day.
