A few weeks before Christmas, heavy rains fell in a region of Uganda where International Needs has children sponsored. International Needs Uganda visited the area and the affected families to assess the magnitude of the disaster:

• 2 schools had their roof tops blown off
• 17 family homes were destroyed
• 72 households had their crops and gardens destroyed

We thank God for the immediate response by International Needs Uganda, who supported the affected families with construction materials, household items, and food packages.

Even as North American hospitals struggle with capacity, the pandemic has caused “economic paralysis” in the DR Congo, according to Gilson, the director of Clinique Papillon.

“Three quarters of our patients are not able to pay their full bills for medical care. Among these patients we received a young woman named Annie, who came for treatment with a high-risk pregnancy. A day later she lost the baby. Her husband then abandoned her without paying for the medicine or the treatment she’d received.”

From the Dhaka Drop-in Centre, Bangladesh

“I am Mamun. My father is a daily laborer and my mother is a housewife. We are two brothers. We stay in a hut. I am very happy to get opportunity to study in this school. My parents could not bear my educational expenses. Now I get chance to work as a helper to a quilt making shop. I get very small amount of money. I give all of my income to my parents. I have to work in this shop for six hours.

My owner of the shop gives me two hours break to come this drop in center school. Our teacher loves me very much. My aim is I want to be a doctor.”
