Send Your Sponsor Child a Gift

How to Send a Gift

Thank you for loving your Sponsor Child in such a tangible way! There are two ways that you can send your Sponsor Child a gift.

Please note that United States Postal Service is currently suspending mail to Uganda due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your Sponsor Child would love to receive a package in the mail!

All packages can be mailed to:

Good Shepherd’s Fold
Box 1281
Jinja, Uganda. Please include your child’s name on the outside of the package.

We suggested that you keep your package very simple. A card, pictures of you and your family, or small packages will mean a lot. Due to the cultural differences, please be sure the photos are modest in nature and do not show bare abdomens or thighs.

Suggested items to mail:

  • Stationary
  • Art / Craft items
  • Toys – age / gender appropriate
  • Games – age appropriate
  • Educational toys / games
  • Books – Christian theme & educational
  • Candy (please pack in Ziploc bag)
  • Girl items – hygiene, nail polish, etc.
  • Boy items – hygiene, hats, etc.
  • Under garments
  • Clothing

*Please do not send iPods, mp3 players, or movies.

You can send a monetary gift to your Sponsor Child, and we will either buy something for your Sponsor Child or take him/her shopping! When making your donation, you can “add instructions to the finance office” when checking out. Please include your Sponsor Child’s name and “money for a gift” in the note.

We ask that you keep the monetary gift at $10 or less. Gifts above this amount will be used towards the care of all the children through the General Fund.
