Restoring Hope To Children With Imprisoned Parents

One of the families visited in Mubende district
In November and December last year, Rose Mugala, Wells of Hope volunteer with Projects department visited 11 families of children with imprisoned parents in Central Uganda – Mubende, Mukono, Luwero and Kampala districts. The families are living in impoverished conditions; the children lack clothing and are pale; most them are infested with jiggers. The houses the children and their caregivers are living in are in a sorry state; they are temporary shelters. Most children have never visited their parents in prison; they do not know how they look like. 14 children will join the Wells of Hope Care and Support program this month; their caregivers are hopeful that their children will be reunited with their parents in prison and will receive education.
