Cash for a Cause, A Life Changed
Over this past holiday season, Computer Frontiers Inc. gave each staff person $100 to give away those in need. All of the employees where touched by this opportunity to give, as well as the various recipients who received the donation. The heartwarming stories will be shared in hope that those who read and hear of the acts of kindness will be blessed by it too.
Please read below about the 95 year old woman from Uganda that Isaac of CFI staff chose to give the money to.
“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” The quote by Sir Isaac Newton will remain a great reminder to one old woman, 95 year old Gadwahwama Damavence of Kichwamba cell village, Kebisoni sub-county, Rububa county, Rukungiri district in South Western Uganda (385Km South west of Kampala, Uganda’s capital) that indeed, CFI turned out a giant in her life in 2013 as I handed US $100 (equivalent to 250,000 Uganda Shillings) to her on the 28th day of December 2013 courtesy of CFI. To her, this was unbelievable!

As I approached her rather dilapidated house, dark clouds began to hover in the azure skies threatening to rain with strong winds blowing. Later a light drizzle set in which eventually turned into a heavy downpour but the challenging weather conditions did not stop me from accomplishing my mission. Hardly did she recognize me at first sight as it was 2 years since I last bumped into this lady at Itojo hospital where she had gone to seek medical attention. At that time she was short of transport back to her home and I offered her a lift back to her home. Upon arrival at her home, she journeyed me through her life story-a touching one; lost her husband and all her children with several grandchildren to take care of. It is against this background that I decided to extend the CFI 2013 cash for a cause US $ 100 to this old lady.
As I left for Kampala on Sunday, December 29, 2013, she offered me a prayer with her face basked in joy. To her, CFI will entirely remain placed in her heart.
For the benevolence bestowed upon CFI by GOD, may the almighty continue to bless the works of CFI as the biblical quote: it is more blessed to give than to receive [ACTS 20:35] was evoked.
