Rukia Natukunda

Your monthly support of $42 (or $500 per year) per child allows an orphaned child to get the help they need. Education, clothing, emergency health care and additional “safety nets” as well as being connected into a family environment are all provided with your gift. In return, you will be building a relationship with a child who will be forever grateful.

Family History: Rukia lost her father in 2017 after an illness. Her mother has always had a history of mental illness making her unfit to look after children. Rukia’s grandparents took her and her sister Madina in after the passing of their Dad. She is in Primary Three and dreams of being a teacher one day. Her grandparents are peasant farmers and they do not earn enough to care for Rukia.
