Jacob’s Story

    Throughout his young life, Jacob’s days were filled with hunger and uncertainty. His mother was never  able to provide even the most basic necessities for Jacob or her other children. Unfortunately, when he was very young, Jacob’s father passed away which left her mother alone to try and care for her children. 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 will work to ensure they maintain a safe and healthy relationship with their mother as well.
