“Life became hard because of my disability… I had no skill that could help me for survival…I felt painful, stressed and weak…” – Michael, from Uganda
When Michael was a child, he developed a bone infection in his right leg. Untreated, the infection left Michael with a permanent disability. He could not walk the long distance to school… cutting short his education. His family relied on the help of his older brother, who owned a small shop.
But then tragedy struck… Violent extremists attacked Michael’s village. They destroyed homes, property and livelihoods, leaving the community deeper in poverty. And they killed friends, neighbours… and Michael’s brother. This was a great loss as this beloved brother helped support the family.
But in rural Uganda, if you can’t walk, you can’t work in the fields. And if you can’t work in the fields, you can’t grow food. And if you can’t grow food, you go hungry.
That’s why your help is so urgently needed. Because now Michael has a wife, Immaculate, and 3 young children to feed.
