Dear friends of refugees and supporters of Rochester Global Refugee Services (RGRS),
Thank you for your very kind donation in which we have been receiving from you all and from different corners of the world. Your generosity will make an immediate difference in the lives of refugees in the Nakivale refugee Camp in Uganda through Corn Mill Grinding Machine relief project for Uganda. The funds raised will go toward supporting widows, orphans and individuals with disabilities in the camp that resulted from war crisis experienced in their home countries.
I would like to share with you about my two months trip to Refugee Camp in Uganda that was intended to implement the Corn Mill Machine project Funded by various donors like you from different backgrounds and Countries all around the World.
During my stay in Uganda, I was able to Build a building for the machine, storage and the office for this project. I was also able to buy a Corn Mill Machine from Kampala Uganda to Mbarara where the refugee camp is located. Most of the work had been done but still your support is still needed to get this machine start running. we were able to buy an electric machine which will be serving 250 refugee families from widows, orphans and individuals with disabilities.
We are in need of buying a private transformer for the project that is estimated to cost us $ 11,000 or Getting power from tapping on another private company that is estimated to cost us $ 6000. The shared power is not reliable for the efficiency operations of our machine project in the long run but we are encouraging you to keep us in your prayers and supporting us to be able to get this project up and running.
I would be happy to meet in person for further discussion on how you can support this project, joining RGRS, volunteering opportunities and possible taking a trip to the refugee camp in Uganda in summer 2018.
You are making a difference!
