Children of Grace has over 800 orphans and other vulnerable children affected by poverty and AIDS in their program.  Their goal is to provide education, healthcare and empowerment programs so that these children can someday become upstanding, productive members of their communities and help eradicate poverty and AIDS.  On average, 217 children are treated per month for diseases including malaria, typhoid, fungal infections and TB.  In addition they treat children with common childhood diseases including measles, mumps and rubella - diseases that could be prevented through immunization.  In a country where most people live on less than $2.00/day, the immunization cost is prohibitive.  Consequently, without the vaccine, thousands of children and youth contract measles and mumps every year.


$24.00 will provide MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
vaccine for a child in Jinja, Uganda.
