Paska attends the women’s Bible Study group. Her daughter Carolyn was born with hydrocephalus. There are no free disability services in Kitgum, no financial assistance for parents, and culturally, Paska was encouraged to look after her other children, and simply neglect Carolyn, then get on with her life. Paska loves her little daughter, and has worked so hard to keep her alive, going against local tradition. We decided to help her by paying the fees and transport costs to enable Carolyn to be treated by specialist doctors who regularly visit a larger town south of Kitgum.
“Sadly, Carolyn became very ill in May 2020 and despite the very good care and medical treatment given at St.Joseph’s Hospital in Kitgum, she died in early June 2020, leaving Paska with a broken heart. She knows that her precious little girl is now safe in the arms of Jesus. Paska will continue to receive sponsorship to enable her to care for her other children, Joel and Miriam.”
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19 :14)
