It was my wife Carol that made the decision to sponsor a child after seeing the ‘African Children’s Choir’ in concert back in 1997. Selected from a number of photographs laid out on a table, 12yr old Suzanne Namagembe from Uganda caught her eye and touched our hearts for the first time. After visiting the family at their home in Mityana, Uganda, we decided that if we did nothing else, we could make a difference to this adopted family and sought to find sponsors for all 7 of them. This first step has led to more than 80 children benefitting from the love and care of our family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

As for those 7 children, see below how well they have done. This is just one story……. could you make another one by sponsoring one of our children?
