Igniting Hope: The Genesis of PSM Charity
In the heart of Uganda, a poignant story unfolded on a television screen, striking a chord that would echo into the lives of hundreds in need. A young girl of just 7 years was bravely shouldering the responsibility of her three siblings, leading a child-headed family in a desperate cry for help.
This broadcast was the catalyst for change. Witnessing such resilience and need, the compassionate individuals who would form PSM Charity were moved to action. What began as a single act of service soon blossomed into a powerful vision: to create a sustainable lifeline for countless others like that courageous young girl.
Since that pivotal moment, PSM Charity has been a beacon of hope and support for vulnerable children, women, and impoverished families. From providing relief items and academic assistance to launching fundraising campaigns for critical medical treatments abroad, PSM Charity has steadfastly stood by those in need.
