Lomongin Moses


    Lomongin’s Story

    Lomongin was born near Jinja as one of ten children. When he was very young, his mother and father abandoned 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. Lomongin’s aunt and uncle were in deep poverty and the children spent their days trying to sell things to make some money for food.

    When one of the PFP Directors met Lomongin 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, Lomongin was suffering from typhoid, a skin infection and a serious case of worms. He was treated for all of his medical 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 unstable and his aunt and uncle were unable to provide for him.

    After some time, Lomongin’s relatives became more stable and invited him to stay with them during school holidays. His aunt and uncle now live in Moroto, northern Uganda, and he’s enjoyed rebuilding family ties with them and other family members. He loves them very much. PFP continues to support Lomongin with all education and medical related expenses. A PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Lomongin’s safety and well being.
