For our first project as Ugandan Support from the Diaspora, the group committed to adopting four families over the Christmas season through a Boston-based church that works with families in Uganda. St Paul’s Church of Waltham has utilized our donations to support one family from each of the disadvantaged groups under their umbrella: 1) orphans/widowed 2) disabled children
3) layreaders and 4) families in need in the community.
