Dear Sir / Mum,
My name is Richards Mukasa, Ugandan aged 17, the firstborn out of four of my late father Mr. Joseph Mukasa,
Am still attending school although, with a lot of financial difficulties. We lost our father 3 years back ever since the situation has changed, this left us with no financial support and we had to resort to crop cultivation like vegetables and cereals, it is from these crops that we are able to have something to eat, unfortunately the increased rains during this season have damaged all our crops and part of our house has been damaged, we are now confined in just one room as the roof of the other room was taken by rain.
Am scared and worried about my young brothers since this situation happened, we only eat once in a day, this is the food we received from good Samaritans and we hope to receive more, our situation needs help.
I find pleasure in knowing that there are people/ organizations like you that are working to transform lives through reaching out to those in need. This is the reason am writing to you, seeking financial support so that I can extend support to my family who is unable to afford to be in school as we work to ensure we improve our livelihood.
Our relatives have abandoned us since our father was not in good terms with them, good enough our dad left land for us, we seek financial support to construct a permanent house where we can live.
The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the situation and since the schools are closed, we had put all the effort into cultivation however our hope is now gone. During the lockdown we almost lost our young brother, he became sick and we had no way out, it was God's mercy that we got someone with a bike who rode him to the hospital, but still he is not in good health as he didn't finalize the dosage.
When I read about your organization, how you have greatly assisted people in the same situation we are undergoing, I thought you could render us assistance in terms of school fees, food, and shelter. With your support given to me, I will not only work hard to ensure that my life is transformed, but I will become a voice for those in need to ensure that the needy have a chance to transform their lives.
