Shifrah was assaulted by her mother being accused of having stolen Uganda shillings 1,000/=. She ran away from home and was found stranded in a busy market by a good Samaritan who took her to Kawempe Police Station. When the mother realized that the Police was looking for her, she went in hiding. The police therefore forwarded Shifrah to the Probation officer who also referred her to Nantale Lifeline Children’s Home. The parents’ whereabouts are unknown to-date despite trying tracing several times.

About Nantale  children's HOme

In 2007, Orphan's Lifeline was made aware of an 84 year old women name Christine Nantale who had been taking abandoned children from the community into her small home for the past 45 years. She had no running water and never knew where the children's next meal would come form. The children were sheltered and loved, but without regular food and necessities they were malnourished and sickly. At this time we began supporting Christine's efforts with food and supplies. When she passed away in 2009 we joined with local women who had worked with Christine and worked to relocate the children to a new safe and secure location. The children now have sanitary living conditions along with food, clean clothes, electricity, running water, beds, education, medical care and loving caregivers to watch over and guide them.

About Uganda

Is a country slightly smaller than the state of Oregon and is home to more than 25 million souls. Uganda, while having a relatively stable government and substantial natural resource, is still a country with much suffering. The 46 year average life-span is evidence of the harsh social climate. Disease and war have take their toll. By 2001, more than 884,000 children under the age of 14 had lost their parents to AIDS. Many others have lost their parents to war. Thousands live in tent cities and the situation in Uganda is considered to be one of the worst humanitarian emergencies in the world. With an estimated 44% of the population living at or below poverty, the orphaned children of Uganda are desperate for our help.
