Last year we conducted a 3 Day Medical Camp in Uganda with a team of volunteers from the US, and with local Ugandan volunteers. In those 3 days we treated over 1,000 people. We had originally planned this year’s medical camp to be in April, but it has been moved to August to coincide with the building project and the mission trip for the team from Waterlife Church. The dates of this year’s camp will be August 7-10. We will be conducting the camp with a team of volunteers from both Waterlife Church and the Lindberg family from Norwary. We will be in a remote village for 2 days, and then near a local clinic for the other 2 days. We hope to treat at least 2,000 people. In order to do this camp we will need your help to purchase all of the medicine and supplies we will be distributing. We will also be renting a tent for people to sit under while they are waiting. The total amount we need to raise for the camp is $6,000. Please consider giving towards this campaign today.
In August of 2019 PUR International will be teaming up with Waterlife Church in Lenoir, NC to both build a village church and conduct a medical camp in Uganda. This campaign has been set up as a fundraiser for the travel expenses of the volunteers that will be going to Uganda from Waterlife Church. We invite anyone and everyone to help raise the funds these volunteers need in order to go on this trip. The total trip cost per person is $2,700. That covers all expenses while in Uganda except those expenses that come from any tourist type activities. It also covers cost of airfare, and travel medical insurance. This is a big financial sacrifice for anyone. Please consider helping to make this trip possible for each of these volunteers. Service is a big part of the vision of PUR International. We believe strongly in the power and the impact it can have on both the giver and the receiver. We are so excited to be partnering with members of Waterlife Church to conduct this service trip. When you donate to this campaign, you can leave a comment to communicate a specific team member you want the money to be given towards. If you do not specify a team member, the money will be distributed equally to reduce the total trip cost for all. Thank you for your support!
This campaign has been set up to raise funds for the building of a church in the Ugandan village of Kitoola. The construction will begin in July. Then in August we will be sending a team of volunteers to help finish it. The team will consist of members of Waterlife Church, PUR International, and the Lindberg family from Norway. PUR International’s first project in Uganda was to build a pit latrine for this same community at the site where this church will be built. The congregation has been meeting for over 5 years. They began meeting in a classroom at a village school, but now they meet in the pole shelter that you see in the picture with a tarp on top. They have had the dream of being able to meet in a permanent building since the church began. Now, PUR International and Waterlife Church will be working together to make their dream a reality. The cost of the building is $6,000. Please help us reach this goal, and bless this congregation with their own building that will be used on a daily basis for many years to come. Thank you!!
