Protect Children in Uganda

Project Leader:


Fr. Denis Ocanda is a hardworking and unsung hero in his community. His Akanyo Parish in the small town of Nebbi serves as a refuge for over 300 orphaned or abandoned children. Fr. Denis is raising money to help provide for these children and the elderly widows who volunteer to care for them. The options outside Akanyo Parish for the children are few and discouraging. Young girls often must marry to be supported by their husbands and provide for their younger siblings. Abandoned boys are often left to crime and drug use. This is how they come to Fr. Denis – seeking a safe haven to be children. Now you know about this unsung hero. Just $25 can help him make a difference.

Dear Todd and Jason, Thank you very much for your kindness. The little children will pray for you, and, given that God listens to them more, you will surely receive divine benediction in all its superabundance.
