    Ketra’s Story

    Prior to joining the PFP family, Ketra lived together with her siblings, Kiiza and Peace, in a slum village not far from the Peace for Paul homes. Both mom and dad suffer from serious mental illness, are unemployed and have been unable to care for the Ketra and her siblings. At their young ages, the Ketra, Peace and Kiiza were forced to fend for themselves to find food 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, Katra lives with her siblings in the PFP homes. Ketra, Kiiza and Ketra attend school and study together. They love learning and are picking it up quickly. Ketra and her sister Peace love dancing and playing games with the rest of the PFP girls.  Over the years, Ketra’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 Ketra regularly and the family is working on rebuilding ties. Ketra is looking toward her future with hope and loves visiting with her dad in a controlled and safe environment.
