WATCCH was created when our team founders traveled to Uganda on a mission trip. The three women discovered 75 vulnerable children in a orphanage in the worst conditions. These children were between the ages 2-16 and many were with out rooms or beds. On the teams arrival they noticed the children had no food or access to water. In fact during the visit one of the children passed out from heatstroke. Often the children would fight over food and amenities since sources were scares. In one room slept 35 boys to one mattress. In another room slept 40 girls to two mattresses.
After there mission trip to Africa. The team of founders received a call that a three year old boy they had met died. He died of malaria because the orphanage could not afford medication. The cost of the little boys life was $15.00 which would have paid for the medication he needed. In August 18, 2011 the team of founders filed with the state of Texas to become a nonprofit. Shortly, after they were approved by state of Texas the 501 c 3 paperwork was filed and 8 months later approved by federal government.
After the team of founders received all proper documentation needed. WATCCH found a home to rent hired on staff and begun taking in children. Because of limited funding WATCCH was only able to take in sponsor 25 of the 75. Since opening the Home 2014. We have had an opportunity to talk with government officials and many are getting away from homes.
We have been asked to expand beyond a home. People in the community need accesses to good medical care. In addition, they need access to a clinic that is flexible on its rates so that even affordable to the poor. They also are in need of a good primary school. A school that has everything to properly educate children including proper school supplies. There is also a need for a community center that will help assist refuges in the midst of disaster.
