This past summer The Lucas Legacy had the opportunity to partner with Embracing Children Adoption Services (ECAS) to serve the children in Kammengo, Uganda. ECAS offered a meal to the children within the community and The Lucas Legacy distributed crocs to every child.
The afternoon started off with us arriving to be greeted by 300 children who had gathered for the event. ECAS and The Lucas Legacy staff worked alongside community members to get lunch cooked up for the waiting kids. Rice, plantains, meat, and a drink were dished up for each child and adult. Everyone was overjoyed, and not a single grain of rice was leftover!
After lunch The Lucas Legacy distributed crocs to every child who was present. It took some sorting out, but by the end of the afternoon you could see the kids walking through the village in their brightly colored shoes!
All in all, it was a great day. There is nothing better than coming alongside the local community members who work hard everyday to better the lives of the children entrusted to them.
