1. Airmail… old school but tangible
Hand writing a letter brings something wonderful and person to each of your letters. In this letter, you can also include such items as photos of your immediate family, postcards and bookmarks. You will need to attach an airmail postage stamp prior to posting as all correspondence must be sent directly to our office in Uganda. The address is:
Watoto Child Care Ministries
PO Box 26366

Email is one of the simplest ways you can write a letter.Simply write your letter in the form of an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be printed and delivered much quicker than traditional mail.
