The recent COVID-19 crisis and resulting lockdowns and travel restrictions have created great challenges for Sweet Sleep. Uganda’s border has been closed since March, and there have been internal lockdowns and restrictions on movement and gatherings. As a result, we were forced to cancel the two mission teams we had planned for this summer. We will take teams to Uganda again, but at this time, we aren’t able to determine when that will be.
Internal restrictions within Uganda are beginning to ease, and our staff are able once again to visit CO•OP groups and bed recipients to assess their condition. For now, our focus will be on encouraging and uplifting those who have already benefited from Sweet Sleep’s programs. We remain committed to our beds and CO•OP programs and will distribute more beds and launch new CO•OP groups whenever it is feasible and prudent to do so.
We will return to Uganda with mission teams when travel restrictions are lifted. If you are interested in future trips and would like to be advised of dates as they become available, please email us using the link below.
For each of us at Sweet Sleep, our story began with a mission journey to a place we had never been to, and knew little about. But when we got there we began to understand the overwhelming need for clean, safe places to sleep, and for economic opportunities for adults caring or orphaned and vulnerable children, and we were able to see that the solution to the orphan crisis is well within our reach. Once we had seen, we had to respond. Our lives were deeply changed on those journeys. How will God use your experience to change you? And in doing so, how many lives will you impact and forever change as you GO.
