John’s mother has a mental illness which her relatives have tried to help her deal with, but they ultimately were unable to help so she lives on the streets. She has given birth to her children while homeless and no one knows for sure the identity of the fathers; certainly none of them have come forward to claim the children.

The relatives have removed her children to be raised by their grandmother, and they also have a guardian named Sr. Winnie who tried to help care for them. Since she is a religious sister and doesn’t earn money, she can’t afford to send them to school.

John Paul is a funny boy who is always cracking jokes. He wants to become a bank manager when he grows up.

About my community:
St. Francis of Assisi (Lugazi)
In the Lugazi Diocese, CARITAS finds some of the poorest families in all of Uganda. Because of St. Francis of Assisi's great love for the poor, he is the patron of this community. We pray for his intercession so that more children in this diocese have a chance to overcome the poverty that they have always known.
About my country:
Uganda
Known as the "Pearl of Africa," Uganda is located on the shores of Lake Victoria in the Great Lakes region of East Africa. Since emerging from decades of civil war and the devastation of AIDs, estimates indicate that 48% of Uganda's population is below the age of 15. Young children suffer disproportionately in the struggle to access healthcare, education, and clean water.
