The thieves have taken all 6 computers, 2 laptops, power cables, their projector and camera, three guitars, a desktop printer, and even the office phone was taken. Some cash due to be paid for rent was also stolen. (The security guard is now conscious again, by the way!)This has severely impacted this group's ability to carry out important work.
“HALEA staff and members are devastated with this development, we have lost the important tools that enable us to operate and surely this is a great set back in the history of the organization. This has happened at a time when we had so many vital activities going on and many pending.”Most recently, you can hear an interview on Ask an Atheist with Norm Allen, founder and former director of African Americans for Humanism.
You can help the group by using PayPal over at IHEU. The estimated required $10,000 was last updated July 23rd, so we know we have a ways to go.
Remember, even one laptop would at least return some of the group's original online presence.
I'll leave it to you to read the details about this in the posts and interview above. I just wanted to add my small voice to the group of bloggers and radio hosts out there who are calling attention to this small group. It's small groups like these along with Humanist schools that will hopefully one day turn the tide in Uganda and, with a new generation, reverse dreadful laws and persecution against people because they are gay or do not believe in God.
Just watch God Loves Uganda on US Netflix if you want motivation to help this group.
