    Peace’s Story

    Prior to joining the PFP family, Peace lived together with her siblings, Kiiza and Ketra, in a slum village not far from the Peace for Paul homes. Their stories were brought to us out of concern for their well being and safety. Both mom and dad suffer from serious mental illness, are unemployed and have been unable to care for them. At their young ages, the three siblings were forced 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 with time. 

    Now, Peace lives with her siblings in the PFP homes. Both Peace and and her older brother, Kiiza, attend school and study at the same school together. They love learning and are picking it up quickly. Peace and her sister, Ketra, both love dancing and playing games with their older PFP sisters. Over the years, Peace’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 Peace regularly and the family is working on rebuilding ties. Peace is looking forward to her future with hope and loves visiting with her dad in a controlled and safe environment.
