‘Gifted Hands’ End of the Year Charity Outreach 2020

See how beautiful it is, brothers and sisters coming together with love that God gave us to extend it to other human beings, praise be to the Almighty.

Yesterday, 19th, December, 2020 will always be memorable for the smiles shared, love expressed and hope restored.

Through #SpreadingWingsInternational, the CEO Mordecai Muriisa Martin Junior lead a team of 15 wonderful young men and women to do a charity outreach dubbed #GiftedHands in places like #Katanga-Wandegeya, #Makerere-Kivulu, Bwaise and Kamwokya.

We pulled together finances, home basic needs like Sugar, Salt, maize flour, soap, cooking oil, clothes and others in collaboration with friends of friends and donated them to the less privileged families in the above mentioned localities.

We did something, but to few individuals, many people need a few things which may not be a matter to you, a cloth that you plan to use as a rag, someone is waiting for it on a good day. Extend a hand in your ability and capacity whenever a call is made.

We want to extend our solid appreciation to whoever accepted to join us in the noble cause, our prayer is that, the Almighty rewards abundantly and enables you not to give up.

Today, Nakawa East Member of Parliament Elect Balimwezo Ronald invited our CEO Mordecai Muriisa Martin Junior as the guest speaker to one of the Primary Schools in Naguru, to mentally prepare Primary Seven pupils for their upcoming final examinations.

We promised him that we would be available and yes we made it to Naguru Katali Primary School, it’s always a pleasure to share our stories with folks like these ones, we stand here as a result of the words we heard from people who were there to us guide along the journey.

Amidst, constraints of all forms, these people who unpredictably came to us, told us to soldier on, to believe even when it’s dark all over, to persist even when we are pushed to the wall and to trust the process and that is the life we are speaking into the lives of these dreamers.

We believe like never before that with the help of God, these little ones future is bright.

Thank you Mayor and now MP elect Mr Ronald Balimwezo.

‘Sanyu Babies Home’ Charity Outreach, 2017

In 2017, we had our inaugural charity outreach at Sanyu Babies Home, together with our friends, we gathered home basic needs, foodstuffs and children wears among others which we donated to the home.

In conversation with the administration of the facility, they told us that they get abandoned babies as young as a day old from different parts of the country.

Sanyu Babies’ Home is a Christian organization based in Kampala, Uganda that seeks to provide Christ-like love to babies and children deprived of parental love and to reintegrate them into the community through reuniting them with their families, fostering or adoption.

Sanyu Babies’ Home is the first and oldest Babies’ Home in Uganda. Sanyu was founded in 1929 by Milnes Winfred Walker, a British midwife working as a missionary at Mengo Hospital. Milnes Winfred Walker noticed the large number of babies being abandoned at the hospital after their birth and took them into her care. Today, they continue to do this work. Child abandonment is still an issue; many of the children are found abandoned in ditches, at hospitals, in taxi parks, on garbage heaps, at the side of the road or in pit latrines. The children are taken to the police who refer the child into their custody for love, care and attention.

At Sanyu they have the capacity to care for up to 50 children at a time, although during the busiest time they often operate at over capacity! The children in their care typically are between the ages of 0-4yrs. Sometimes they may care for a child until they are a little older if it gives them the chance to be reunited or adopted.

‘Sanyu’ means joy and that is what they want their children, staff members and volunteers to experience while they are with them. They want the children to know that they are deeply loved, have an extended family who care about them and know that they will always have a place to call home.

‘Where Hands Meet’ 2021 Mid-Year Charity Outreach at Kuza Orphanage center, Seeta – Mukono

Over the weekend, Spreading Wings International visited Kuza Orphanage center, Seeta – Mukono, Lumuli Village during our Mid-year charity outreach and we extended our donations ranging from food stuffs, home basic needs, scholastic materials, words of hope and others.

We felt touched by the story of the facility, and how COVID-19 affected their operations as narrated below.

On 24th May 2005 mayhem engulfed Kyaggwe in Mukono Municipality when assailants attacked and opened fire against pupils and students at Saint Mary’s Primary and Secondary School Katente in Kyaggwe – Mukono.

Immediately after their ill actions, the perpetrators took off leaving the community worried while police launched manhunt and investigations, parents and guardians came to their kids rescue in fear of what had happened.

Over 20 kids remained stranded and helpless, these were orphans who were being taken care of by the school, when the school decided to suspend operation for further investigations, the matron then, Shabunam Namuyanja decided to take them at her place and luckily enough her husband welcomed them.

Months turned into years and years and years and no one came for kids, she eventually decided to open up an orphanage center that would welcome abandoned kids and orphans.

Kuza Orphanage Home was the name she chose to give this home, (Kuza to literally mean raising a child).

In order to help kids not be sad about their past, she and her family members that is to say her children and relatives started up a cultural troupe and kids would be dancing and singing, this morphed into a group that would fetch them money to feed the family through invitations it receives to perform on all types of parties.

Since then to date, she has not stopped, she continues to welcome children, the little ones then are now big boys and girls and others are responsible men and women in different capacities. There even those who don’t know their parents, some are dropped at the facility gate as young as they are one month old.

The facility, with the dance wing Kuza Troupe Africa has been doing well despite a few challenges, but when COVID-19 outbreak was declared in the world and it’s subsequent effects like the lockdown, restricted movements and gatherings, the troupe has been battling to raise funds for day to day activities, and needs since the invitations to perform on different occasions are no more.

This came to our attention to mobilize support from our friends and visited them to help with the little we managed during our Mid-year charity outreach named ‘Where Hands Meet’, under the theme ‘ We are here for you’.

We were thrilled by the reception, performance were super nice and very refreshing, we were humbled by the appreciation and comfort from the facility.

We share these photos not to show off, but to account for your contributions and inspire those with good hearts to visit them because they are still in need of Matresses, blankets, bedsheets, financial assistance and more, perhaps also to join us next time.

Thank you all, May God bless you.

Over the weekend, we yet again spoke to three (3) community based organizations that is to say, Her voice too, Peddle Uganda and Chicken Roasters based in areas of Kasanvu – Kisugu, Namuwongo, Kibuli, Wabigalo and the neighborhood.

This session was organized by Plan International in partnership with the above mentioned groups.

These groups comprise of youth grew up in slums, they used to engage themselves in various mischiefs including drug abuse, sex harassment, stealing and others.

Few years back, #PlanInternational with safer cities for girls project approached the former unruly and notorious youth to transform their lives, they were encouraged to engage in income generating activities like chicken roasting and others, sports activities, dance, singing and rights advocacy for both girls and boys and they have really transformed.

We addressed them, first what we do as Spreading Wings International and later our founder Mordecai Muriisa Martin Junior spoke about his life journey from slums to where he his now against all the odds. He gave motivational message, hope and inspired them to fight for their place in the world.

We were once again pleased with the reception given to us, and we hope to meet these people again when they have moved further steps in life, we hope to work with them in our community outreaches too.

Thank you,

Public Speaking Session to the ‘Lost Boys’, May 2021

Yesterday, we spoke to the ‘Lost Boys’ formerly a criminal gang on the road of transformation at the former inaccessible ‘Lost Street’ in Kisugu, Makindye Division, Kampala.

We were invited by Plan International in conjunction with Safer cities for girls to deliver a message of hope, on transformation journey of these great men and women that everything to change their lives is centered in their decision to opt for a fundamental change.

These confessed to us that they indeed engaged in untold misneeds, like robbery, harrasing the women and girls, drug abuse, manipulation, unnecessary fights, to mention but a few.

Our founder Mordecai Muriisa Martin Junior , shared with them his life story from the ghettos of Lubaga to the worldwide screens, he anchored his message on hope, motivation and inspiring the sleeping abilities in them.

He surfaced in two appearances, first with a hoodie, army camouflage and sports shoes to blend with them and later in a suit to look like the professionals you know, but there was a message that life can change in minutes if you dares to transform.

We were thrilled with the hospitality from former untouchables, unruly and notorious group, indeed the transformation goal is in their hands, these asked for financial support to buy a a jet car washing machine, general financial transformation and media space to deliver a message that change is possible.

Special thanks to plan international and safer cities for girls, these are driven by the desire to provide free and safe accessibility of girls and women to public places, and communities.
