Samuel, 9 years old
Samuel’s mother was a prostitute in Mbarara who just recently died from AIDS. After she died, Samuel had nowhere to go, so he decided to live on the street.
The streets of Uganda are full of orphans that have no one to help them. They survive by stealing, digging through garbage, running drugs and even prostitution at an extremely early age.
Samuel was found by Diana Kamanzi and brought into their home and is now part of the Home of Hope. At first he was suffering from feelings of rejection and would stay by himself but is now coming out of that.
Samuel’s great desire in life is to study and become a minister of the Gospel.
