In Africa, nearly 1 out of every 5 children are oppressed by child labor. Today, COVID-19 threatens to increase those numbers. Recently, Pearls of Africa Children’s Fund staff attended 2020’s World Day Against Child Labour. Now we need friends like you to stand by our children’s side. Your gift today empowers Pearls to rescue more vulnerable children off the streets, before it’s too late.
Protect a young life.
Safeguard a future.
Seeing each other as equal has always been at the root of our mission here at Pearls Children’s Home. But as recent events have reminded us, the world doesn’t always agree.
Systemic racism, injustice and bigotry continue to find their way into innocent lives here in
Africa and abroad.
All of us at Aid Africa and Pearls of Africa Children’s Fund say “enough is enough” –
Black lives do matter.
Alongside compassionate donors like you, our aim continues to center around creating better
lives for children. They are the true agents of change for our world. Please join our fight.
We are all equal in the sight of God.
Together, we must ensure that everyone sees it that way.
“I didn’t have parents. I didn’t have a place to stay. I didn’t have hope,” said a young lady raised by Pearls Children’s Home. Today, due to the generosity of friends like you, that once-abandoned little girl is now a college graduate. “They educated me. They cared for me. I thank God for what I am today.”
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God is this: to care for orphans…”
Every two minutes, a child dies from malaria in Africa. Education is vital, especially amid a pandemic. For youngsters at Pearls of Africa Children’s Home in Uganda, your donation provides disease prevention training, mosquito nets, medicine and more.
Take a minute today. Protect a child. Defend a future. Save a life.
Though the kids are safe, food has gotten expensive
The pandemic and ensuing lockdown in Jinja, Uganda has caused food prices to soar. Vegetables and grains are two to three times more expensive. The children are eating one meal a day.
A mother with two children were walking by the Pearls compound yesterday when the mother collapsed from hunger. They were trying to walk to their village where they’d find support. The children saw them and Rosette reported to the Local Chair who got them food and helped them on their way. The Ugandan lockdown is so oppressive!
Here’s an opportunity to help. A few dollars buys a lot in Jinja. This pot of vegetables costs only pennies!
