    Morgan’s Story

    Morgan has been an orphan since the time he was an infant. His mother died when he was only one month old and his father died shortly afterward, in a motorcycle accident. After losing both parents, Morgan lived with his grandmother but she had medical issues that caused paralysis and rendered her unable to work regularly. When she felt well enough, she was sometimes able to work, sorting beans and doing other simple jobs in a restaurant. She was given food and occasionally a small amount of money for other needs in exchange for her labor. Unfortunately, she was not able to provide even the most basic necessities for Morgan, let alone pay for school. Further, when she was sick she was not able to contribute to his well being at all. His grandmother pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to help Morgan so he would have a chance at a better life.

    In 2017, Morgan was welcomed home to the safety and stability of The Peace for Paul family. Morgan now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and is excelling in his studies. When not studying, he enjoys running, coloring and playing with his friends. 

    In 2019, Morgan’s grandmother received medical care through a community outreach program. Her illness is now being treated appropriately and she has been able to start up a small business cooking in a local restaurant.  Her income is enough to support Morgans’ basic needs and she has welcomed him home again. PFP continues to support Morgan with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays he spends time with his beloved grandmother at her home. The PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Morgan’s safety and well being. He loves spending time with his grandmother and is grateful for the love that surrounds him.
