Prayer House family Children Project

MISSION

To curb the spread of poverty, illiteracy, and diseases, and create a lasting solution for children in need.


Phf Children Project is a Christian ministry dedicated to partnering with an orphanage and was established in June 2011 in the Ntunda Mukono District as a non-profit charitable organization. The initiative for its formation was envisioned and spearheaded by Patsor Jackson of Prayer House Family (PHF) who felt that it was desirable to form a collaborative learning project as a strategy to effectively jointly respond to curb the spread of poverty, illiteracy, and HIV/AIDS. Together we started the Centre to do holistic development and care of orphaned and vulnerable children. However, the support that their guardians provided for these young children was inadequate because of increased poverty, illiteracy, and HIV/AIDS, leading to poor health, hygiene, and nutrition; absence from school; and developmental delays. The main objective of the orphanage is to advocate for rights and needs of orphans, encourage and promote literacy, training, health, and education for orphans by facilitating the acquisition of appropriate reading materials for children. Since its inception, the Center has focused on education, care, and spiritual nourishment of the children. Currently, the Center has early childhood Development (ECD) classes, rehabilitation activities, feeding, and clothing activities for a child population standing at 50.We need to be sponsored. 

The Center depends on community contribution, well-wishers, and our church for running its activities. The Centre is based in a poor area in Ntunda town in Mukono District. This area is characterized by many social problems, including a high rate of HIV/AIDS, poverty, and illiteracy. Due to the Centreís dependency on well-wishers and fund-raising, itís quite difficult to keep a high standard of living, and provide health care and other necessities for the orphans. As such, we are seeking funds to build a modern orphanage and health center, and provide ECD classes and other viable income-generating programmes to meet the needs of Center children.  The children we serve range between 3 years to 15 years without any gender bias (boys and girls are considered equal).

Sponsorship helps poor children and their families, Health.and offers security and sense of dignity that is all too rare when you live in poverty.

Treatment


Children who live in poverty are exposed to dangers everyday. Illnesses like tuberculosis and malaria that have almost disappeared in the developed world thrive in impoverished communities.

  • Contaminated water exposes poor children to parasites and potentially deadly diseases and acute digestive issues.
  • Choking air pollution contributes to the spread of respiratory illness and skin infections.
  • Poor sanitation practices and insufficient hygiene perpetuate an unhealthy cycle.

Healthy children have a better chance of overcoming poverty and succeeding in life

Prayer House Int'l Ministries would like to focus on children's overall health by providing:

  • Routine checkups
  • Follow-up care for illnesses and injuries
  • Medications
  • Dental checkups and curative treatments
  • Anti-parasite treatments
  • Malnutrition screening and treatment
  • Hygiene education

Althrough we don't have enough Medical Fund, We are giving free medication to people in our community. Our Churches in  every community manages to pay the bill but when we get someone to take care of that, it will be great.We help many sick, diseased or injured children each year who have more serious medical conditions.See Health.

Nutrition


It is a sad fact that many children around the world do not get enough to eat like here in Uganda, and the meals they do have are often deficient of essential nutrients. Malnutrition slows a child's development and makes them vulnerable to a number of illnesses.

Good nutrition is a building block for proper development and can:

  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Enhance cognitive and physical development

Increase concentration in school

Prayer House International Ministries(PHIM) addresses a child's nutritional needs in many ways.

  1. All children have to receive a regular health and malnutrition screenings.
  2. Our feeding programs treat malnourished children by providing nutritiously whole meals and vitamin supplements.
  3. Parents are taught nutrition fundamentals and provided with meal preparation training and information about purchasing locally available inexpensive, nutritionally whole foods.

Child Assistance


Prayer House International Ministries (PHIM) has found that in order to improve the lives of impoverished children, we must strive to improve the conditions of the entire family.

In an effort to create a more comfortable, safe and sanitary home for Children, Prayer House International Ministries (PHIM) would like to develop a family assistance program to provide relief in times of need.

Children may receive benefits such as:


  • bedding, dishes, eating utensils and cleaning supplies
  • home repairs
  • emergency aid after natural disasters
  • community improvement projects, like wells and sanitary waste systems
  • literacy programs for mothers
