This project has finished.
Nice to meet you! My name is Rehema Nantume and I'm from Kampala, Uganda!
I'm running this project in order to raise some funds to buy a new house for my mum!
The house where I'm living with my mum is old and many parts are broken. During rainy days there are many leaks.
Also, it is really easy for the house to get flooded and outside garbage enter the house which is really insanitary. My mum is in her 60's and she has many health problems. Living in a house like ours is not good for her.
I would like to give a new house to my mum, but my financial situation doesn't allow me to do it.
My mum got divorced when I was 2 years old.
She did her best effort to work, support me and feed me. Now, I'm the one who is working and everything what I want do to is support my mum as she can't work anymore. She is suffering from high blood pressure and is HIV positive.
I'm working in a supermarket but my monthly income is $30.
My mum needs medication on a daily basis that I pay, so I can't save money for other stuff. People around us are also struggling so they won't lend us money.
The cheapest house I could have costs around $1,500.
For me, is impossible to save even such a small amount. I started to save like 1 year ago and I just got $100. It's something I can't do alone.
That's why I'm here asking for your help. My mum and I will really appreciate your support!
I hope you can support me to raise $1,400 to get a new house for my mum so she can have a happy life.
If I can get enough support I will get a cheap house and move as soon as we can.
My mum's health condition is not good so I would like to move as soon as possible to a new place. In case I can't get enough support we will have to keep living in our current house, as there isn't anything else we could do.
We will be eternally grateful for any support you can give to us! Thank you very much!
