Believe it or not, but these two are twins! (left Babiriye, right Nakato)

Nakato has been in the home since beginning of 2003 and Babiriye since end of 2005, 3 years less! Good feeding seems to make a great difference in the growth of a child.

Sunday's football match against Besaniya Boys (another children's home) was again successful. Our team (CMU and Chain boys together) won 1:0!
Even the youngest had their own fun during the match.

John, a former volunteer with CMU Children's Home had his wedding last Saturday. Francis happened to be the "Bestman" (witness).

Last week the primary school where our kids go to, opened some new classrooms, and our kids participated in entertaining the guests. We have some pretty good "dancers" among them...

Martyrs Day

Today, many Christians have travelled, some even on foot, to Namugongo to celebrate Martyrs Day. Every year on 3rd June we remember 26 young Christians who were killed in 1886 because of their faith. They had become a thread to the King and did not follow his orders for evil practices.

Time for Planting.....

Currently food prices all over the world have shot up including Uganda. We have put much effort in planting our own food supplies, ie. maize, beans, sweet potatoes in order to survive this current food crisis. The weather here is quite good and favorable for these crops. We pray for a good harvest.

Time for Holidays

Every holiday the kids are going to the villages to visit their relatives. Usually they are very excited to go. It is important for the kids to keep in touch with their extended families, because those families remain their "home". The local government discourages the idea of keeping children in children's homes without any contact to relatives. It would make it difficult for the children to resettle after their time with us.
Happy Holidays!

Christmas in April

Recently our kids got shoe boxes donated by another children's home. This was great joy and excitment as it came unexpectedly. It just felt like Christmas..... :-)

May we introduce ourselves: Gerald, Zephania, Rose, Justus, Monica, Carol, Denis, Deogracious, Nicolas, Moses.......
it would occupy too much space to mention all our names. But we love our home called CMU and all the uncles and aunties who are taking care of us plus mummy and daddy. They will introduce themselves later....
The youngest kid will join baby class next year, otherwise we are in all classes, from 1 to 7 primary level and from 1 to 6 secondary level. One of us is already doing a vocational training in mechanics first year.
