As the mom of treasures in wheelchairs I cannot overemphasize the need for concrete sidewalks to roll them on. (Stones don't work at all, gravel is impossible - our family gets this!)
But can you imagine pushing Gems in wheelchairs for months during rainy season in Uganda each year? Or could you imagine struggling to walk with a walker during rainy season without a sidewalk?
So here's my birthday wish: The Gems of The Gem Foundation Uganda are of infinite value and deserve the very best we can give. Let's pave the sidewalk together!
Would you give a birthday gift to help pave the sidewalk? Just like in the real birthday world - No gift is too small.
Thank you so much for your gift! I love each one of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart! Linny
PS. Uganda's cost per linear foot for the sidewalk is approximately $20.
PSS. That's Nehemiah - one of the Gems in the picture with me. He's one of 43 of my most favorite Gems! When I met Nehemiah he absolutely stole my heart! Each time I am in Uganda I can't wait to see him. Nehemiah is a delight to all who know him, he's tenderhearted, kind, and he's working hard to learn to walk with a walker. A sidewalk for Nehemiah will enable him to move his walker around his home - Gem Village. Let's do this!
