POSY is thrilled to support One4Another by selling our 'One4Another Shea Butter Soap', with all profits going to this wonderful charity!
One4Another's primary goal is investing in life-changing surgeries for children in Uganda who would not be able to afford it without outside help. Many children in Uganda grow up with debilitating diseases and illnesses that are easily treatable. These illnesses often cause a lifetime of suffering and exclusion from their communities. Canadian children would never have to suffer through living with club feet or a bone infection, since with our amazing health care system these afflictions would be quickly treated. With financial help from Canadians, Ugandan children can receive the surgeries they desperately need and hopefully have a brighter and happier future!
What we at POSY love about this organization is that One4Another is a registered Canadian charity based locally right here in Cambridge, Ontario! Even more amazing, though the fundraising action happens here, all the workers at O4A are Ugandan. There is a growing team of Ugandan professionals taking care of these children at the One4Another Surgical & Rehabilitation Centre in Jinja, including surgeons, nurses, program coordinators, follow up care, community officers and therapists.
Glenn Pascoe and Wendy Hayhoe, a sibling team created One4Another after volunteering in Uganda. They saw the many needs and couldn't come back to Canada without 'doing something' about the great disparity of wealth that that they saw exists in the world.
Surgical care for these kids from start to finish costs between $200-$1000 depending on the surgery. Having the needed surgery can shift children from a perpetual life of poverty to the hope of an education and job to provide for their families.
Some of the many conditions that One4Another helps to treat are clubfoot, bone infections, burns, fractures & trauma, growths & tumors, hernias, birth defects, urological problems and eye diseases.
Another amazing way that Canadians are helping these children is through the '18th man project'. Boys and Girls hockey teams from all over Southern Ontario have partnered with One4Another by adding a Ugandan child in need of surgery to their team as the '18th man', and fundraising as a team to pay for his/her surgery. One4Another even facilitates a relationship between the team and the child through letters, updates and pictures.
Hopefully you will agree that this is an amazing Canadian charity and well worth investing in.
