Meet Joel from Gulu, Uganda

JoelHere is an update from our partners with ACTION International in Gulu, Uganda who run the Village of Hope and Home of Love…

What a difference takes place when a child is loved, as shown on Joel. He is one of our Home of Love boys. Look at him beam. He is 11-years-old & in primary 3 at school. He wants to be a doctor when he grows up!

Joel’s father was a soldier who was killed in the war in Northern Uganda. His mother died giving birth to him, and Joel was then taken in by an uncle.  The uncle was abusive, so Joel was removed from his home and taken to Home of Love. He enjoys playing soccer.

Through Joel’s smile, you can see what being loved does to a child.
