    Kiiza’s Story

    Prior to joining the PFP family, Kiiza lived together with his siblings Peace and Ketra, in a slum village not far from the Peace for Paul homes. They were brought to The Peace for Paul Foundation out of concern for their well being and safety. Both mom and dad suffered from serious mental illness, were unemployed and had been unable to care for them. At their young ages, the three siblings had to fend for themselves to find food in the slums by begging neighbors and digging through trash. They often were left unattended for days to care for themselves. They showed serious signs of neglect, as well as physical and mental abuse, and we are still working with them all to overcome these issues.

    Now, Kiiza lives with his siblings in the PFP family home. Both Kiiza and and his younger sisters Ketra and Peace attend school and study at the same together. They love learning and are picking it up quickly. Kiiza loves playing with toys and with his friends. Over the years, Kiiza’s father has seen some improvement with his mental state and is now able to help rear cattle for neighbors to earn a small living. During school holidays he visits Kiiza regularly and the family is working on rebuilding ties. Kiiza is looking forward to his future with hope and loves visiting with his dad in a controlled and safe environment.
