This Life Foundation Annual Dinner
Grand Royale, Granville NSW
30th October, 2015
This Life Foundation held its annual fundraising dinner on 30th October at the Grand Royale, Granville. The dinner was attended by 170 guests that includes representatives from universities, Local Members of Parliament, Community leaders, Civil society, sport industries and the mainstream Australian communities.
The dinner was organised to raise funds to support vulnerable child-headed families in Oyam, Pader and Abim of North and North-eastern Uganda respectively.
Many children have been orphaned, their parents were killed by the LRA or died in the IDP camps from preventable diseases or from the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It is estimated nearly three million children in Uganda have lost one or both parents, that there are an estimated 42,000 children head households. The majority of the population still remaining in the IDP camps are children who have nowhere to go.
The Foundation is raising funds to build a learning center for orphaned children and to provide support to child-mothers.

One of the things we enjoy is getting to know our kids and spending time with them. Please meet some of our children, get to know them and share their dreams
