Let's help with hospital costs and school fees.

Main image

Deo was our tour guide in 2013 and 2018. He's a gem - utterly honest, hardworking and reliable.

On 11 March 2019 he was mugged in Kampala and is now in hospital with a fractured skull and therefore no job prospects. The potentially means no more education for his two teenage kids - Michel and Elizabeth, and destitution for the whole family.

Deo has been successfully operated on and can now speak a bit. But even if he fully recovers, it will be months before he can drive and therefore earn a living.

Use of funds

1. The Operation needs paying for.

2. Michel is in his last year of secondary education, while Elizabeth is in her 2nd. Their mother has no real income. Everything we can send will be valued.

Funds will be sent via MoneyGram to Deo once he is he's well enough to get around.

    Dear Deo, Please know you & your family are in my prayers while you recover from this dreadful incident. I will never forget your service & kindness in sharing your beautiful country with us. It wouldn't have been the same without you. Please get well soon.

      Thanks so much. I'm expecting to see the hospital bill very soon and I think your donation should enable us to clear it. That will be a big relief for the family.
