It’s amazing to see what a difference the simplest gift can sometimes make.
Our community mentors in Patongo, Uganda, provide counselling and support to former child soldiers in the town and surrounding villages. Sadly, as most of them are not wealthy, they have no transport and have to spend hours walking between the villages.
Now, thanks to the generosity of one of our supporters who arranged for the delivery of 10 brand new bikes, each of the community mentors has their own bike to travel between the town and the villages. By saving the amount of time it takes to travel to the young people they mentor, each of the community mentors will now be able to work with even more young people, giving them support and counselling to enable them to overcome their trauma and rebuild their lives.
How amazing to think that the gift of a few bikes can change lives in such an incredible way!
