John Mark is twenty-one year old Ugandan student with a powerful opportunity. He is the ONE student in all of his country, invited to participate in a UN conference on climate change.
His aunt, Margaret Twahirwa is my friend.
Uganda is a poor country and the people struggle. John Mark is one of them.
This is the letter his aunt wrote to me, posted with her permission.
thank you for asking about my nephew Yes, John Mark was the only student in the whole country selected by the United Nations to attend this youth conference in Istanbul. John Mark was chosen from among all college students who competed in an essay writing program to discuss global issues. His essay was the one that qualified him to be the only candidate to represent our country, Uganda.
He is now in need of donations to help out with the purchase of airline ticket, and accommodation. He is scheduled to attend the conference in February next year, 2023. He needs two thousand US dollars to make this trip. If you know anyone who is able to help, our family would be so grateful. John Mark says that people are always willing to help if they can, we only need to ask. I believe he is right. Here is my husband’s Zelle account (SEE BELOW) if anyone is able to contribute. His deadline for payment is December 1. Any amount given is very appreciated. Thank you and to all those you have reached out to on John Mark’s behalf.
I am hopeful that my dear friends and family will reach into their pockets. Ten dollars from ten people is one hundred dollars. If you can, send it along. I will keep you posted on John Mark’s journey, IF he is able to go. Please consider helping this amazing young man.
