Ronald Abiine qualifies for university

Ronald Abiine is heading to the university!

The BHTF Uganda and USA teams are proud to bring you the happy news that another one of our students has qualified to attend the university. Ronald Abiine’s family struggles in poverty and could not afford to leave him in school. But Ronald would not be discouraged. He came to BHTF Uganda at a young age for help and has been supported there throughout his primary and senior education. He scored 18 points in his UACE national exams in order to move on to a coveted university education. Ronald plans to become a lawyer who will fight for the rights of vulnerable children in his community. His present and future success is a testament to the hard work of the people and supporters of Bringing Hope to the Family. We extend our warmest congratulations to Ronald and his family. Please consider a donation to help Ronald and other young people in Kyenjojo District to achieve their dreams and goals.  DONATE >>

Abandoned child now under the care of Home Again Children’s Home

Tiny abandoned infant rescued.

Our BHTF Uganda team is reporting the recovery of an abandoned infant. The teenage mother had buried him alive, but a good samaritan collecting firewood in the area found him and brought him to Hope Again Medical Centre for treatment. The baby has now recovered from tetanus, a potentially fatal bacterial infection. Although he will continue to need regular medical attention, he is currently being lovingly cared for at Home Again Children’s Home in Kaihura. The stated goals and purpose of our organization is to provide an environment that prevents tragedies such as these by improving the health and well-being of all families through education and empathy. We welcome any and all support towards those ends.  DONATE >>

Wine Tasting Event draws generous crowd

Tori Robinson, BHTFUSA Board Member (L), and Charlie Rogers, BHTFUSA Ambassador (R), join BHTFUSA Founder Christine Deschaine at exclusive Wine Tasting Event in Agoura Hills.
Laine Wagenseller relates stories to Wine Tasting guests of his many experiences as a volunteer and mentor in the Village of Kaihura, Uganda.

Bringing Hope to the Family USA recently hosted an evening of wine tasting and conviviality to raise awareness of our Ambulance Fund. The exclusive event was held at Agoura Wine & Beer Co. in Agoura Hills. A video presentation, narrated by the esteemed Dr. Helen Williams, Dean of Education at Pepperdine University, provided guests with the history and purpose of the founding of BHTFUSA and outlined the urgent need for an ambulance in the Village of Kaihura. We are deeply thankful and appreciative of the generous gifts we have received as a result of our event although we are still short of our goal. You can read more about our Ambulance Fund and make a donation towards this effort here:  >>AMBULANCE FUND
