    Rebecca’s Story

    Throughout her young life, Rebecca’s days were filled with hunger and uncertainty. Unfortunately, when she was very young, her father passed away which left her mother alone to try and care for the children. Rebecca’s mother was never able to provide even the most basic necessities for Rebecca or her siblings.  In Uganda an uneducated woman without a husband has little hope of being able to provide for the family. Jobs are scarce and desperation is so common that people aren’t often able or willing to help. Rebecca and her siblings often would go days without any food and they did not feel safe at home. Their mother pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to rescue Rebecca and her young siblings so they would have a chance at a better life. In 2017, Rebecca and both of her school-age siblings were welcomed into the PFP family and they can now look toward their future with hope. PFP continues to work to ensure they maintain a safe and healthy relationship with their mother. During school holidays, her mother visits Rebecca at Love Home and when possible, Rebecca goes to spend time with her mother at her home as well.
