HIV/AIDS and the recent war further north in Uganda have produced hundreds of orphans. A number of Alenga area families have taken these children in. This generosity of spirit, of course, puts greater financial strain on these families. Efforts are needed to aid them in fulfilling their role as guardians and to facilitate the education and growth of these children of the community.
There are two fish ponds on the parish grounds which are used to generate revenue to purchase school supplies for orphaned children in the region. This greatly helps the foster families to provide for children whom they have generously taken in as their own.
