Help children get more
out of life than just surviving.
Right now there are millions of children around in Uganda who are scared, alone and feel unloved. They don’t have anyone looking out for them.
GIVE A MONTHLY GIFT
HELP A CHILD FEEL LOVED AND SAFE
By donating $10 we’ll send you regular stories of children from around the world.
Showing how your money is making a lasting difference.
We do help differently.
Food, water, shelter, emergency care: these are all vital. But would you want your child to just survive? We don’t stop at survival.
Every child has the right to grow up feeling safe, loved and supported in a family, with a parent to provide this. We help this become a reality for children everywhere. Only then can they truly thrive.
We help children who have no one. We help families stay together.
Because every child counts.
A life transformed
As Ryan grew with her mom,he was abandoned by the father in Kawempe,Uganda since the day he was overthrown away from the house.
He was then hospitalized for 1 month and Kawempe clinic treatment, where the doctor contacted OCIA.
“I had no idea what he’d been through,” his dedicated guardian said. “He kept his eyes closed all the time and never complained of anything except for when he was hungry.”
But thanks to the support of people like you Enock.
He recovered well. He’s now a happy, healthy 9-year-old, who feels safe, loved and supported.
Give a monthly gift of £10 and receive regular stories helping you get closer to the lives you’re changing.
There is a catastrophe unfolding on our doorsteps and within our communities. COVID-19 now promises to bring untold suffering to the poorest, most fragile communities in the world.
OCIA is positioned to make a critical contribution to this collective action but to do this we need your help. The communities we serve need us to act. We are determined to do just that.
You can donate a hand-washing station enabling 150 people to access water to wash their hands and reduce the risk of infection.
You can donate vital supplies of disinfectant, masks, soap and sanitizer to a community of 250 people enabling them to protect themselves and help prevent the spread of the virus.
You can donate for a trained COVID-19 worker to support three communities for one month, communicating urgent life-saving messages about prevention and protection as well as providing psychological first aid for children and adolescents affected by the pandemic.
When children are given the chance to learn, they have a chance to break free from poverty. They have a chance to build a brighter future for their families, their communities and their countries. Every child deserves that chance. If you are a taxpayer please donate here instead.
By supporting OCIA regularly, you'll be part of an amazing group of people having a lasting positive impact on some of the most vulnerable children. Your regular gift means we can plan more effectively, commit to helping more children back to school appeal and respond to the urgent needs of children in emergencies.
