How the employee got involved and why
I'm compelled to support differently abled children because of the stigma that comes with their conditions especially here in Africa where tradition still takes precedence in most communities. They are considered outcasts, bewitched and curses to their families and so end up being abandoned or left with their grand parents who are incapacitated to handle their needs. Sensitization remains a bigger challenge as well. I started last year for this particular home.
What work does the employee do for charity
My siblings, family and friends visited Home of Hope Uganda in partnership with Equality Mission Uganda to celebrate festivities with them, provide clothing that had been collected from friends and family over time, food and medication. We spent time learning about the history of the school, visiting the new facilities being set up and saying a prayer with the children.
