Oringa came to us for help, moving along using a wooden pole. He fell from a push bike many years earlier, but living a long way from Kitgum, well beyond any medical help. His leg simply set in it’s broken position and with no medical treatment at all, it withered and he experienced severe muscle loss. Oringa presented us with a long list of items he said he needed. We decided not to give him those items, but arranged for him to work on a “part-time” basis, trimming shrubs and plants and helping in any way he could, to earn money and buy those items himself. We gave him a pair of crutches and he proved a valuable asset as a groundsman. Rather than reinforcing the “you give me” mentality, the decision to ask him to work for a wage proved very successful. He ultimately received a 3-wheel bike and was able to then live independently and get on with his life.
