2 Corinthians 9:6-8 says remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Charities working in Uganda are all about working for the communities for example Love Uganda Foundation. And God can bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
