LISBURN Square Traders have offered their
support to a Dromore family who have travelled to Uganda to
spend time working with Dwelling Places Rehabilitation Home.
The McCluskey family has visited the region
over the past three summers and have raised in the region of
£15,000 for the project. Dwelling Places work with street
children in Kampala and aims to rescue, rehabilitate, reconcile
and resettle the children.
Lisburn Square traders have supported this
effort each year and have donated a £100 shopping voucher and
proceeds from a treasure trail organised as part of a fun day.
This year they agreed to provide a football kit for the team the
McCluskey boys set up and coached two years ago. Many of the
children are disadvantaged socially and football is an amazing
way to reach out to the boys in Dwelling Places.
As well as running the football school the
family will be involved in a home school education programme,
arts and craft and delivering a programme to young people who
will go into independent living from September.
