I do hope you don't mind us appealing to you but things are getting very worrying in Jinja under lockdown. Firstly, Thank you so much for the support you have already given to JET, I thought you would appreciate an update of how things are in Jinja at the moment so I attach an up to date report.
The issues facing us at this time are very challenging and frightening for us all, but this is magnified in a country with no real healthcare or social help at all. We are doing all we can to support the JET community of schools and orphanages, as they in turn are reaching out to the children and families under their care.
Normally we only fundraise at our annual dinner once every two years but these are extraordinary times, so I am taking the unusual step of reaching out to you by email to ask if you would be able to help us further at this time.
It will cost us an additional £1 buys a study pack to help a child learn at home. £3 to provide a child with nutritional porridge for a month, £20 for a handwashing station with soap, £40 offers a month’s supplies to a teacher. £100 a month’s supply to a family.
I completely understand that you may well have been inundated with requests for help from so many other deserving causes so please don’t feel pressured into giving to us too, we all do what we can. If case you are able to help at all, or know someone who might, I include a link to our Just giving page and our bank details.’
Take care and keep safe
With love and very best wishes
