|Ex-street children seek help|
A group of orphans and former street children from Kampala and Mpigi Districts have appealed to good samaritans to contribute towards the construction of a spacious home for them.
The children made the appeal at a breakfast meeting in Kampala on August 25.
The new home, which will be located in Mpigi, is estimated to cost Shs31.1 million. " We appeal to well wishers to support Mama Agatha so that she can build us a bigger house where each one of us will be able to sleep on a single bed," said a 12-year-old Kerement Kiggundu.
Kiggundu is an orphan and a former street child who was picked from Kampala streets by the Director of Mother2Mother, Ms Agatha Idusso.
Kiggundu was taken to his aunt’s place after the death of his parents.
He, however, said she cannot look after them. Kagimu said his mother lives in Kasubi,a Kampala suburb and that she hawks yellow bananas in the Old Taxi Park.
