Project Description

Aging comes with many challenges. The loss of independence is one potential part of the process, as are diminished physical ability and age discrimination.

Although some older adults remain self-sufficient, others require assistance. Because the elderly typically no longer hold jobs, finances can be a challenge. And due to cultural misconceptions, older people can be targets of ridicule and stereotypes. The elderly face many challenges in later life, but they do not have to enter old age without dignity.

The major challenges to the old people include poverty, mistreatment and abuse, discrimination and loneliness. While the elderly may face such challenges in developed countries, it is worse in third world countries where the population is hit by poverty, spread of diseases, mistreatment, discrimination and selfishness.

Our Efforts

CCREP wants to provide aid, support and care for 20 old people in our community who are struggling. Each of them has a unique story. Life is indeed tough when you are old and moreover when you feel like none cares. It is our prayer that you partner with us such that we cause these people to become aware that really God cares and He recognizes their existence on earth.

We will repair or rebuild their homes to provide safe shelter.
We will seek to identify reliable economic activities for them.
We will extend care and support, like giving them food, clothes, water and medication.

Cost: $2,400 for one person

You can be part of us through donating, volunteering, sending gifts, spreading the news among others. Donate now.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. — Matthew 25:35

On Monday the 6th of May 2019, we (Ronald, George and Fred) visited Kigongo in Katwe village, Bugembe town council Jinja district. Kigongo is 93 years of age and lives in what had been the goat shed of a kindly neighbor. Heavy rains damaged her shed/home and we came to repair it.

We also brought her soap, foodstuff (10 kgs of posho), sugar and other basic requirements.

Kigongo has no relatives that we are aware of other than the family that offered her their goat shed. We are truly proud of this family which has been able to look after this lady for more than 3 years not only offering her shelter and food, but also taking care of her medical needs. Due to the prevailing economic situation in Uganda, the concerned family has its own limitations and they too where full of praise when we came to give a helping hand to Kigongo. We pray with the grace of God we shall continue to do whatsoever is able in our means to uphold this noble cause.


As long as poverty, injustice & inequality persist, none of us can truly rest. It doesn’t take much to change a life, Get in touch today and start making the difference.
