PTMOF Emergency Shelter

PTMOF  Nansana, Uganda

Swimming pool soon to be a conference centre and an emergency shelter for our young girls. 

PTMOF currently runs out of my family home that was built for us by my Canadian father, Reverand Father Raynald Pelletier. In my early years, my younger brother had this pool built to help support our family by charging a small entrance fee. He now runs and teaches classes in a larger pool he has built in a nearby town.

As PTMOF grew, and the babies grew along with us, the pool became dangerous for our toddlers. We were advised to fill it in but I decided to think outside of the box to bring the Canadian basement to Uganda.

Heartfelt thanks to KIDS Canada supporter, Eva Quanhin, for helping us build the structure and the roof.
