Open Heart for Orphans and Widows (OHOW) is located in small village in Bugiri Uganda, East Africa. The orphanage is under the care of Katabalwa (David) Noe, founder and director of this Ministry. They are a non-profit, independent organization and totally rely on donations and sponsors for all of its operations. OHOW does not receive any assistance from the African government at any level.
Donations help buy food and clothing for the children. Presently, there are 20 children ages 4 to 15 years of age and 5 widows.
Your help and support are needed so that David can continue to provide these poor and needy children with a loving, Christ centered home, where they can sleep, eat, and live a peaceful life. Without funding the support and well-being of these children cannot be fulfilled. Many go to bed hungry and wake up hungry because they do not have the food.
Our immediate goal is to raise the money necessary to operate the orphanage on month to month basis – $2000 per month. This buys food, pays for shelter, pays for medical treatments, pays for school supplies, and other miscellaneous operating expenses.
Longer term goals for OHOW will include raising funds to acquire land, build a home for the orphans and children, build a school, build a hospital, and build a church. These initiatives will be handled over time, individually, as separate campaigns.
We are in need of partners to help combat hunger and poverty. We are privileged to be the hands and feet of Jesus to these children by helping David provide for them.
***NOTE: OHOW is a registered non-profit organization in the nation of Uganda.
