Eagles Wings – our charity

admin

We have a long standing association with a local Watford charity called Eagles Wings. Eagles Wings was founded as a humanitarian aid charity in 2004 to alleviate suffering and poverty by providing basic food, shelter, clean water, clothing, healthcare and education to those living in desperate circumstances. Since spring 2017 we have been sponsoring a little girl called Comfort. Comfort and her family and friends are in the first slideshow below. Prior to sponsoring Comfort, we sponsored Mary, from a village called Elburgon in Kenya, by providing funds to support her through school and by sending her Christmas presents. Mary has now left school and no longer needs our support. The second slideshow shows Mary and her friends at Christmas in 2012. 

December 2021 Update:

We have received a personalised video from Bruce Oliver, representative for the charity Eagles’ Wings. The video sadly showed that children in Uganda have not been back to school at all since the beginning of the pandemic and that also, Comfort’s guardian who is a teacher, has lost her job. Therefore, our sponsorship is even more important for the family. Our school council will be organising an event to raise sponsorship for Comfort in the new year.
