When Musa was six years old his mother passed away. Soon after his father remarried a woman who was not keen on Musa and his biological siblings. The environment became volatile and Musa quickly became the target of that volatility. To protect himself he began living on the streets in Jinja, selling empty bottles and scrap metal to make just enough money to eat.
Due to this familial conflict his father completely cut off ties. Musa found himself alone with little hope for his future. However, he did not give up! He began repeatedly visiting Peace for Paul’s Hope Home and asking the security guard for help. Eventually the security guard told a PFP social worker about the situation. With permission from Musa’s father, he joined Peace for Paul in January 2023.
Musa is a very lively and jovial child. He loves playing a lot and gets along well with others. He’s extremely excited to start school again and says he wants to get access to education because people respect educated people.
While we hope for reconciliation between Musa and his family in the future, we are grateful he can join The Peace for Paul Family. His future is much brighter now and we are cheering him on.
