Lomongin’s Story

    Moses was born near Jinja as one of ten children. His mother and father abandoned the him and his siblings , leaving them in the care of their aunt and uncle. He hasn’t seen the rest of his family since and he does not know where his parents may be living. The children were forced to pick trash for food and items that could be sold. If a trash pile is unproductive they resort to stealing a bag of roadside charcoal and selling it.

    Moses was first seen on a visit to Masese. He had major swelling due to an infection around his eyes. This serious and very visible issue prompted another visit to find him and treat his infection. In addition to the many abscesses, Moses was suffering from typhoid, a skin infection, many wounds and a serious case of worms. He was treated for all issues and it was decided that it would be best to give Moses a stable home and an opportunity to attend school since his living situation was dangerous and they were unable to provide for him.

    Since being rescued Moses is a happy child and has a lot of energy. He loves talking and staying active with his brothers at school and home.
