Say Hi to our 2 Cows

Alhamdulillah, some sisters and brothers from Germany donated two cows to our orphanage for Eid al-Adha. We have managed to transport them to our place in the middle of the night. And the next morning they already started to graze and settle in with us.

However, we are still very short of daily food and are in urgent need of support.

Eid al-Adha / Opferfest (EN/DE)

(This post is in English and German.)

English:

Now that the first 10 days of Dhu al-Hijja have begun, we wish all Muslim readers of these lines that they use this special time profitably and that they belong to those whom Allah forgives their short commings.

Our children are especially looking forward to sumptuous meals at the Feast of Sacrifice. If you would like to be one of those who make your sacrifice for the Orphans of Uganda directly and without an intermediary organization in between, we have some information for you here.

  1. We have here with us licensed Muslim butchers, who will slaughter the sacrificial animal in your name. Your name will be mentioned.
  2. I, Byarugaba Isma, will be present at the slaughtering and will film the whole process (slaughtering, cooking until distribution among our orphans) on request and send you the video.
  3. In the following the animals and their approximate prices are presented to you at the time of this posting, so that you can also choose the animal you want to sacrifice. Please note that the prices may increase as we approach the Feast of Sacrifice.

And if you have any questions, please send us an email or direct message. Our contact page.

Jetzt, da die ersten 10 Tage von Dhu al-Hijja begonnen haben, wünschen wir allen muslimischen Lesern dieser Zeilen, dass sie diese besondere Zeit gewinnbringend einsetzen und dass sie zu denen gehören, denen Allahs Vergebung zu Teil wird.

Unsere Kinder freuen sich insbesondere auf üppige Mahlzeiten beim Opferfest. Wenn du auch zu denen gehören möchtest, die direkt und ohne eine vermittelnde Organisation dazwischen dein Opfer für die Waisen von Uganda erbringen, dann haben wir hier einige Informationen für dich.

  1. Wir haben hier bei uns lizensierte muslimische Schlachter, die in deinem Namen das Opfertier schlachten werden. Dein Name wird dabei genannt werden.
  2. Ich, Byarugaba Isma, werde bei der Schlachtung dabei sein und den gesamten Vorgang (Schlachtung, Kochen bis zur Verteilung unter unseren Waisenkindern) auf Wunsch filmen und dir das Video zukommen lassen.
  3. Im folgenden präsentieren euch die Tiere und ihre ungefähren Preise zum Zeitpunkt dieses Postings, so dass ihr auch das Tier aussuchen könnt, das ihr als Opfer erbringen möchtet. Bitte beachtet, dass die Preise noch steigen können, je mehr wir uns dem Opferfest nähern.

Und falls ihr noch Fragen habt, schreibt uns eine Email oder sendet uns einfach eine Nachricht. Unsere Kontaktseite.

There has been little activity on these pages here lately

There has been little activity on these pages here lately. That’s because of three things:

  1. We were kicked out of our present home because the landlady had no more patience with us, because we could rarely pay our rent on time. Besides she could find a tenant who already had to pay more. So we had to move and are now in a temporary place without knowing how to go on.
  2. Some weeks ago I got a malaria infection which knocked me out for about 2-3 weeks. But I am feeling better meanwhile, alhamdulillah.
  3. One of our girls, Fatumah, was bitten by a snake in her little toe last Thursday, which then became necrotic. We took her to the hospital. There we were told that they would try to save the foot with a treatment. If that failed, she might lose her foot.

But the treatment seems to be starting to work and we were able to bring her back to us this morning, alhamdulillah. There is only a hospital bill of about 125€ to be paid for the treatment, which we unfortunately do not have.

Case of illness in one of our girls / Krankheitsfall bei einem unserer Mädchen

(Deutsche Übersetzung ist weiter unten)

We had to take one of our little girls to the hospital on Monday evening because she was suffering from stomach ache. At first we suspected an infection, caused by our water problem, which we have here.

Doctors say after examining her, she had stomach ulcers. The results and scans will be added to this post.

The treatment will take about two weeks. The first bill is already UGX1.020.000 (approx. 240€), which we are unfortunately not able to pay. We would therefore be very happy if someone could be found to help the girl.

German Translation

Wir mussten eines unserer kleinen Mädchen am Montag Abend ins Krankenhaus bringen, weil sie an Bauchschmerzen litt. Wir hatten zuerst den Verdacht auf eine Infektion, ausgelöst von unserem Wasserproblem, das wir hier haben.

Ärzte sagen nach Untersuchungen, dass es Magengeschwüre sind. Untersuchungsergebnisse und Scans fügen wir diesem Post hinzu.

Die Behandlung wird etwa 2 Wochen dauern. Die erste Rechnung beläuft sich jetzt schon auf UGX1.020.000 (ca. 240€), die wir leider nicht im Stande sind zu zahlen. Wir würden uns deshalb sehr freuen, wenn sich jemand finden würde, dem Mädchen zu helfen.
