At Wells of Hope, it is our joy to bring hope to such families especially the children. Through family visits, we interact with families of prisoners to let them know that they are not alone. The other purpose of these visits is to look for children that are needy so that we offer them education support at the school (Wells of Hope Junior School), give them a chance to visit their parents in prison and also provide them with welfare packages like medication and also counseling. Through family tracing, families are encouraged and strengthen by knowing that the inmate still cares about them despite being in prison as some of these families take a long time without hearing from the inmate due to inadequate funds for transport to visit the inmate in prison. The families are also encouraged to work harder for their children.
From 11th to 15th of January 2016, Stella, Steve and Gina conducted Family Visits of families of inmates at Luzira Upper Prison in Boma section. They visited thirteen families in Kampala, Entebbe, Mpigi, Gomba, Kayunga Districts.
We are hopeful that if the children get sponsors, they will be enrolled into Wells of Hope and will be able to visit their parents, get education and medical care
