A Child's Story – Hellen Apio of Uganda

Nine-year-old Hellen Apio comes from the village of Barlonyo in Uganda. Her parents were both killed in a rebel attack in 2004 when the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebels burned down their hut. Hellen herself barely escaped the fire, with scars to remind her of what had happened. With both of her parents gone, she was left to an aunt who eventually could not properly care of her.

For much of the developing world, the average wage for employment is unimaginable by American standards—about one dollar per day!

Your gift will provide for a month’s salary for one of our in-country support staff.

Share of a Generator
