What We Do?
Karis Kids links family to family and church to church.
We aim to link up churches in the UK with churches in Uganda to partner together in caring for the orphaned children. Within those linked churches, we link up family group to family. The majority of our supported families live in the slums in Kampala with dependents of their own.
A family provides:
- Love and acceptance
- Food and shelter
- Nurture and protection
At Karis Kids we have developed a trusted means for families or groups of individuals to give financial support to a link Ugandan family. The families develop relationships with their linked UK families – it’s this relationship which is central to the Karis Kids idea.
Support of £62 per month provides such things as school fees, medical expenses, clothes, food and soap. Karis Kids also organizes regular get togethers for the families focussing on parenting skills, life skills, and offering pastoral support.
