Patrick and the team of volunteers have built relationships with organizations in Uganda since 2003,
working with them to provide the resources to help those in need find success in life.
Uganda needs our help in the battle with COVID-19
Our team has started making face masks on our farm in Jinja. Our goal is to provide 100,000 free masks to police, health care workers, and those in need. We need your help to fund this project and protect Uganda!
We are currently able to make about 500 masks per day with the 5 Singer sewing machines we have. Each machine is about $140 USD and we are looking to purchase 5 more.

As a registered Non-Profit in the US, we are focused on three areas in Uganda:
Many Ugandans cannot afford school fees past the elementary level. We have several programs and oppurtunites to provide school funds to those who seek education. Our goal is to give Ugandans the tools to live a sustainable, productive life.
As we visit and get to know each organization, we work with staff to meet the real needs they have. There is often a lack of basic supplies such as baby formula, pens/pencils, or bedding. We then purchase those supplies and deliver them directly.
Another large area of need is basic hygiene products. We have always provided basic dental and medical supplies, but have recently begun supplying reusable feminine hygiene products from a supplier in Uganda.
Watch this video of Estella’s story and the impact our hygiene project is having in Uganda.
These projects are implemented via constant communication with Ugandan partners and two visits per year.
Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. It is a country of about 42 million people and is considered to have a significant overpopulation problem. Uganda has the lowest median age in the world at 15 years. As one of the poorest nations in the world, 40% of the population lives on less than $1.25 per day.
That being said, the Ugandans we work with are a beautiful and joyful people. Our goal is to give them the education, tools, and resources to continue the progress the country is making. There are a lot of good things happening in the country, and our goal is for Patrick’s Children to continue to make a meaningful impact.
Help Patrick's Children make a difference in Uganda!
