Olupot Joseph

Uganda in Eastern Bukedea

I am Olupot Joseph. I am 38 years old.

I live with my two kids in Uganda in Eastern Bukedea in the village of Kapungurei kidongole.

I became a widow at an early age.  My husband was sick many years ago and we were unable to afford the costs of doctor visits or medicines since we led a very poor life. I remember the moment of losing him as if it were yesterday; the feelings of grief and loss will never go away.

   I am Olupot Joseph. I am 38 years old. I live with my two kids in Uganda in Eastern Bukedea in the village of Kapungurei kidongole.

   I became a widow at an early age.  My husband was sick many years ago and we were unable to afford the costs of doctor visits or medicines since we led a very poor life. I remember the moment of losing him as if it were yesterday; the feelings of grief and loss will never go away.  I was powerless to watch him die in front of my eyes, and I was hoping for a miracle to save him. The suffering and pain he endured ended with God's grace, and he now rests in peace.  With him gone, I bear the full responsibility of taking care of my family. I am an uneducated woman, so I face difficulties finding a job and securing food and essentials for my two kids. I do peasantry in my home for some crops. However, the yields are limited, and barely cover our own daily need for food. The kids have been devastated, with no emotional spirit nor money for continuing their education.

Africa in Me has been nearby and offered all possible help and support to my family. It has opened doors of hope in our injured hearts. I would love to thank the organization for all of your efforts in helping the needy across Africa who face struggles in feeding their families.
