On the 14th of June 2012, the delegation from the Aalborg Østre Rotary Klub met to fellowship with Rotarians from the Rotary club of Kampala Day Break at Grand Imperial Hotel in Kampala. They also agreed to cooperate the next time they are doing a project in Uganda. The delegation took a trip to Jinja where they visited the source of the river Nile, waterfalls, and Butiki Village where they met Pastor Michael, a leader of one of the small churches and they also donated to his congregation. The donation exercise was crowned with a ceremony that was held on the 15th of June 2012 at Management Training and Advisory center (www.mtac.ac.ug). The ceremony was officiated by the General Secretary of Uganda Olympics Committee as the Guest of honor, the Board of Directors of Help Africa, guests from Muyenga High School, Kawuku Parents School together with Help Africa Children and other invited guests from different areas. Top jackets and bags were donated to the schools, as well as 5 laptops to Kawuku Parents School, 1 laptop to Muyenga High School and 1 laptop to MLISDA.
On Saturday the 16th of June 2012, the delegation visited Forever Sports Academy (www.4-sa.com), where children both within the Help Africa project and those outside the project participate. They meet every Saturday from 9am – 12: 00 noon not only to play for fun or pleasure but also to identify and develop the various sports talents. To these, the delegation donated Sports materials like sports uniforms, stockings, bottles, soccer boots and footballs. After visiting the academy, they went to Missionary of the poor and they also donated to them.
On behalf of Help Africa, Forever Sports Academy and on behalf of all the beneficiaries, we would like to thank you for donating a 40ft container with sports and scholastic materials that contributed to the social welfare of the Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC’s) in Kampala.

Mosquito net donation.
September 12th 2010: A large amount of mosquito nets were donated to families living in the slums in order to provide the means of protection against malaria. The Kampala district is composed of a good number of slums, in which many people live trying to get by one day at the time. Most of these people cannot afford buying nets because other basic needs are in greater demand, which mean they have to live with the risk of getting infected.
