Charities

St Mary & All Saints have committed to making an annual donation to the following charities over a three year period:

  • Homes of promise - Uganda 2016-2018
  • Mercy Ships 2014-2016
  • Willingham Youth Trust 2015-2017

When we give to others in faith we are also giving to God: "Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." (James 2:15-17).

By giving we receive blessings from God: "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap" (Luke 6:38).

 Homes of Promise Uganda: Homes of Promise Uganda is a new charity set up to primarily serve the street children of Kampala, to regularly provide meals for approximately 70-100 boys with hopes to extend this programme to education, healthcare and their complete holistic wellbeing. Individual homes are also considered for grants along with specific healthcare programmes. Lynn van Keulen is one of the founding trustees.

Jacknella has advised and assisted in the support and set up of this charity. Whilst as a trustee Lynn takes no payment for this advice and support it has enabled the vision of the Founder Jane Davidson to have clarity as to how that vision can be fulfilled. Along with the other trustees we have worked to create an effective means to serve street children of Kampala taking a holistic approach, nutrition, clothing, education and health needs.

"Lynn (Jacknella) has been instrumental in supporting the setting up of Homes of Promise, always on hand to offer professional advice about how best to create a sustainable and effective charity. Specifically Jacknella secured substantial funding for our first health project"
Jane Davidson, Founder, Homes of Promise, Uganda
