|Cultura supports orphanage|
Marsha Munsey, a third-grade A.L. Smith Elementary School teacher who spent two weeks in Hoima, Uganda, last summer at the Blessed Mustard Seed Babies' Home, recently received a check for $300.00 for the home from Cultura Book Club.
Sue Greer, Cultura Book Club project chairman and Sue Drewett, Cultura president, presented the check to Munsey.
The money will be given by Munsey to the orphanage to pay for the day-to-day needs of one child for a year.
Twenty-five dollars per month will sponsor one child, including helping to pay for education.
Fifty children are presently cared for at the Christian home, whose director, a registered nurse, and staff hope to expand to meet the orphan crisis in Uganda.
Except for the Blessed Mustard Seed Babies' Home, these children have no hope.
Many were found abandoned on roads or in fields or empty buildings. Most of them from a few hours to a few days old and very sick and malnourished.
Support is critical in order for the home to accomplish its mission of preparing the children for lives of meaningful work. The local contact person is Rev. Polly C. Anderson, 4037 Hwy 15, Calhoun, LA 71225.
