The Shepherd's Guild

Guilders Without Borders

"Guilders Without Borders" is the Guild's outreach project to distribute multi-vitamins and assistance to vulnerable children and prenatal vitamins to women in Uganda.
 
According to the World Food Programme, hunger and malnutrition are still the number one risks to health worldwide. And every six seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes (source: FAO).

In Uganda, 198,000 children die from lack of Vitamin A according to USAID. The most common cause of blindness in developing countries is vitamin A deficiency (VAD).

Vitamins are sent to our partner the St. Nicholas Uganda Children's Fund for distribution to children in the area. The St. Nicholas Fund provides full educational support and health care for orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.
 

But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.  Luke 14: 13-14

Please donate to our Christmas Appeal for Children - The Shepherd's Guild is a 501c3 tax-exempt charity.
