    Jacob’s Story

    Throughout his young life, Jacob’s days were filled with hunger and uncertainty. Unfortunately, when Jacob was very young, his father passed away which left his mother alone to try and care for Jacob and his two sisters Rebecca and Harriet. Their mother was never able to provide even the most basic necessities for Jacob or his siblings.  In Uganda an uneducated woman without a husband has little hope of being able to provide for the family. Jobs are scarce and desperation is so common that people aren’t often able or willing to help. Jacob and his siblings often would go days without any food and they did not feel safe at home. Their mother pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to rescue Jacob and his sisters so they would have a chance at a better life. In 2017, Jacob and both of his school-age siblings were welcomed into the PFP family and they can now look toward their future with hope. PFP continues to work to ensure they maintain a safe and healthy relationship with their mother. During school holidays, his mother visits Jacob at Love Home and when possible, Jacob goes to spend time with his mother at her home as well.
