A million Euro raised for Uganda

Martin Tournoij
Hey all,

It looks like that as of 2017, about a million Euro in total has been
raised for Uganda. See my answer here for details:
https://vi.stackexchange.com/q/572/51

Of course, we don't know if it was all Vimmers that raised the million,
but the majority probably is.

Cheers,
Martin

Wow, that's impressive!

The estimate for the German donations are a bit too high though.  Last
year was about 16,000 euro.

If you wonder what the children get for the money: We recently had two
students finish their university studies that we are proud of.  One of
them is now a Doctor (still has to finish his practical year) and one a
registered lawyer.  Less than twenty years ago they were hungry and
sleeping on a mud floor with only an old blanket...

Ow... I just scaled them with the same number as the regular donations.
If you happen to have more accurate numbers at hand for the rest of the
years then that would be nice (if you don't, then don't bother).

That's good to hear. Sounds like the "teach a person to fish"-sort of
aid!
