Protect Children in Uganda

Project Leader:

Reverend Denis Ocanda

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 drawn into child labor, 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 Missio brothers and sisters, greetings and thank you very much for your kindness, which makes us here see the hand of a loving providence at work and the concern of fellow humans overseas Your help enabled us buy food, clothes, scholastic materials and that is needed for a normal living in homes. Children and adults benefitted. We pray for you. We ask God to replenish your sources and to give you peace and every good in the Lord. We find ourselves in this part of the world, not by immigration by but by birth, and it is you kind ones who help us see meaning in life. Thank you.

I received this donation already, through the Apostolic Nunciature in Uganda, and I will soon send photos which explain fulfillment. The children and all the parishioners of Akanyo, Nebbi Catholic Diocese, Uganda, are very grateful to all missio donors. We are all united in prayer for you. May God bless you all.
