Faith Angels Ministry

.Leveling the ground
This was done as a process for the construction of a new house for the staff of Faith Angels Ministry. The first steps towards the construction of a teacher’s hostel are ongoing and the ground is almost leveled. A few men
were hired to level up the ground. This will help to provide accommodation for the teachers when the schools do resume.
. Latrine
In the month of July, they purchased 3 iron sheets and roofed the new teacher’s latrine. This is the latrine that was begun in May and hasn’t been finished due to the covid-19 lockdown. This will help in improving health and sanitation.
. Batwa Covid relief
They distributed food to 217 Batwa households in Kabale, Rubanda, and Kisoro districts of South Western Uganda
In addition to the above, they gave out facemasks to 700 people, and soap and beans to 217 households.
. Farmer’s support
In July, they began a project among the
local farmers who live near Bwindi forest. They supported them by buying local beehives. These have helped in improving their income through selling the harvested honey. Some of the harvested honey is also used to improve the health of their children through feeding. In
the month of July, they bought 2 modern beehives for these farmers. They also gave them smokers and safe gears to use when harvesting the honey.

Organization’s activities

. Community Support
July has been a difficult month for Faith Angels Ministry, as a total lockdown has prevented the children to attend school, and all the activities have been canceled until further notice.
The organization has been focused on supporting the community, as they are going through an urgent situation that requires all possible efforts. They have donated to the Batwas, support the farmers, and also some orphanages.
. School reforms
During the month they have also taken the time to continue the teacher’s latrine and the teacher’s house before the children come back to the school when the lockdown will be finished.

Entrepreneurs monitored by IOM

Last month, the group of entrepreneurs collected $60 USD. The amount has been delivered together with the collected $80 in the previous month, making a total of $260 USD.

The collected amount during the previous 2 months has been delivered already to the leader of the entrepreneur’s group.
It will be shortly divided between the 14 entrepreneurs that already have opened their projects in Airfunding, with the objective of using it to develop their business plans or improve their current businesses.
We will inform about these improvements in the next reports!

Solidaridad sin Limites

This month, the collected $163 has been used for the transportation needed of the mission to Mirití Paraná

Funds breakdown

Collected support: $163 USD

Transportation: 100%

The money has been spent on transportation to Mirití Paraná. They need support because it is mandatory to go from Leticia to the community on a plane. There is no way to go on a bus or a boat. By boat, the distance is 15 days from Leticia to the community so it would be 30 days to go and return for just a few days of attention.
So they will take two planes: one from Medellín and Bogotá to Leticia and one to the community.
The overall cost of the mission is around 10.000 USD and it started on August 13.

Organization’s activities

Donations in Hogar Divina Providencia
