sending gifts to your sponsored child:
The best way to send your child a gift is to make a monetary gift so that the item can be purchased locally in Uganda. If you would like your child to receive a specific gift, please make a note in the memo line when mailing a check, or if donating online. Please mail checks or money orders to 10205 US Highway 1, Sebastian, FL 32958.
Another Way: We will notify you when we have a mission team traveling to Uganda, so that you can put together a personal gallon-sized ziploc bag full of goodies that will be hand-delivered to your sponsored child.
Please fit everything into one gallon-sized ziploc bag per sponsored child, write your name and your sponsored child’s name on the outside of the bag with a permanent marker, and mail to 10205 US Highway 1, Sebastian, FL 32958
Gift Items that can be included in a gallon-sized ziploc bag:
Note, some of these guidelines can change due to customs regulations.

What Should I Write About?
Our children regularly think about and pray for their sponsors. You are investing in their lives, and they consider you family.
Write as if you are. Letters should be mailed to Imani Milele Children, [Sponsored Child's Name], 10205 US Highway 1, Sebastian, FL 32958.
Be encouraging! And please be sensitive to the child's economic situation. Avoid discussing the material aspects of your life, or including your address, phone number, or email. Here is what you can share in your letters.
