Good Health
Favorite Subject: Art
Favorite Pastime: Soccer

After the deaths of both his parents, Josam and his siblings went to live with their grandmother. This woman is around 80 years old, and used to weave baskets to earn money to support the family. Unfortunately, her poor health now prevents her from doing this work: she suffers from high blood pressure, back and leg pain and she cannot see well.

The family now works together to do gardening work to earn some money, and thankfully their neighbors are able to help them with some food. Josam dreams of becoming a mechanical engineer when he grows up, but there is no way he will be able to finish his education without a sponsorship. He is a friendly boy who enjoys soccer. His siblings Joyce Namuddu and Renisha Nonnono are both available for sponsorship as well.

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.
