Background

Basing on the vulnerability of children and women,the insufficient funds to meet spiritual, sheltering, feeding, health, education, social economical welfare to Children and women house holds, Samaritans For Children was started to help the most vulnerable and marginalized children with women so that they can attain quality spiritual life and social economical welfare for their house holds. The director(Muyingo Andrew) having struggled in life as a needy child and worked in various children service organisations, he was inspired to start Samaritans For Children in 2014 to help the most vulnerable children and women in Mityana District- Uganda. We started with taking care of 12 children and the organisation is currently taking care of over 50 orphans and vulnerable children and two women groups in communities of Mityana District - Uganda. The organisation helps the orphans and vulnerable children and women with spiritual support, sheltering, feeding, health, education, social economic welfare, though our call for more funding due the high vulnerability of children and women in Mityana District still has a high funding gap. Thus we call upon various friends, well wishers, volunteers, NGOs and donars to join hands with Samaritans for Children to provide services to the beneficiaries in Mityana District-Uganda.

Vision

Referring from 'The Parable of The Good Samaritan' Luke: (10:25-37) Samaritans For Children looks closely to helping the neighbourhood as the good samaritan who was travelling did to the vulnerable person who injuredLuke: (10:25-37). By showing God's grace to children in Uganda living with or infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, they will be celebrated and seen as fearfully and wonderfully made by being supported by good Samaritans spiritually, finincially, emotionally and economically. We believe in the worth and dignity of all human beings. We work alongside caring and dedicated members of the local community to lead the way to end discrimination towards children and adults living with HIV/AIDS, affected by poverty and Covid-19 issues in Uganda. We envision to spread the gospel of the Samaritans for Children from Mityana to Uganda in general through building the spirit of voluntarism, formation of samaritan clubs in schools, churches, local communities, Awareness radio programs and involving the local community.This will enhance all of us to share the little from our possessions to the vulnerability class of people targetting children (Matthew:19:13-14 -as Jesus welcomed children). We look forward to seeing the developing the samaritan seed to grow from childhood to adulthood hence serving exactly in Jesus' foot steps thereby promoting his works.
To crown it all, we intend to build capacity vulnerable children's service providers including homes, schools and churches, fundraising for children's welfare and promoting children's rights.
