Despite all the challenges during 2020, life within the FOP children’s village goes on.  Most importantly, each month we celebrate the children’s birthdays, making them feel very special, and most of all teaching them that they are loved by God.  This month, one of our pairs of twins celebrated their special day.  Here they are wearing their party hats!

Some of our older children in the Babies Home are ready to move into our next Family Home.  We are thankful that, due to easing of Ugandan government lockdown, we are now in a position to be able to re-commence the final stages of Family Home No.6.  To complete this building, we require funding for solar power and landscaping.  If you are able to help, please click on the "Donate" button for options on how to donate, or any queries should be addressed to info@fountainofpeace.net  

In addition to our birthday girls, here are a number of pictures of some of our children.
