3 year old battles for an Ice Cream corn, to feed his 1 year old sibling – Feed the Streets
That thousands of kids right in the heart of the capital city of the Pearl of Africa race for more than 3 kilometers battling just to share a piece of UgaChick chicken, Ice Cream and 200mls of Riham soda aren’t something that we should take for granted.
As the teens fought for chicken, 3 year olds were on the other hand battling for a sip of Ice Cream. One most touching moment came forth when a 3 year old boy fought tooth and nail to receive a corn of ice cream and shortly after ran to serve his one year old sibling.
For the kids at Kasaato, their last memories of ever tasting chicken soup is a story for another day and all you see in their faces is hope that’s about to die. From day one of their childhood, the life they lead can only be related to a rough battle between a lion and hare in the jungle.
On Sunday 25th Feed the Streets excited more than a thousand kids at Hosanna, Kasaato orphanage and primary school in Kisenyi suburb, Kampala.
Treated to a delicious chicken meal, Ice Cream, music, and dance, and hosted by Grace Nakimera, for over 7 hours, disadvantaged children at Hosanna orphanage only kept screaming, shouting and pouring tears of joy in thanks for a decent meal that was provided by Grace Nakimera and Feed the Streets Foundation with generous support from Mrs. Mable Kabuye, Mr. Rune Edvardsen and Mr. Aga Sekalala | UgaChick.
Feed the Streets Foundation is an initiative of Grace Nakimera a talented, multi award winning singer. The nonstop drive will move across the country every month providing meals to those most in need.
While speaking to the excited kids at Kasaato, Grace Nakimera noted that “Uganda’s biggest problem is mal-nutrition, if me and you don’t take the initiative to support those most in need, our future doctors, teachers, ministers etc. will die of hunger or the diseases that come forth as a result of poor nutrition.”
Upon sharing a few event photo moments on her official Facebook page, a one SuperTina Aguilera Samora Portal remarked saying “You’re such an amazing person Grace, May the almighty bless u million tyms. Love u as usual…… * * * and miss u… My bestie.”
Grace Nakimera served the kids along with her mother Rose Nabulya, daughter Macha Rinzen Kalema, and big brother, also talented singer Juju who doubles as Feed the Streets campaign manager. Among other gifts, a few kids received clothes and sanitary supplies that left them all excited.
It should be remembered that Grace Nakimera has been running such campaigns for over three years now.
Last month she served more than 500 kids on the streets of Mukono town, her most notable event though was her Ntandika Charity Concert held in Kikubamutwe in 2014.
There she served over 5,000 kids with food, drinks, Soap from Kiboko and other Christmas goodies courtesy of DSTV.
The next Feed the Streets event will take place in the last week of March.
