Vivacious Vital Volunteers at Home and Abroad - Uganda part 2

Yesterday I started a series of blogs honoring the important work of the amazing volunteers who have dedicated their time and their lives to support the children in Uganda through BULA's many projects.

Today I would like to talk about the directors of the children's home - Uncle Steven, Uncle John and Uncle Dan. These three men have truly made the ultimate sacrifices to protect and honor the rights of the children who were abused and neglected. This was no easy task for the men, as they persevered despite cultural norms that look away from such abuses and misunderstandings that complicated the efforts to secure the well-being of the children.

But persevere these men did and because of their hard work we were able to place the children in a safe environment, register with the necessary legal authorities, reunite the children with their families, and begin to plan for the futures of the children in our care.

Because of their constant sacrifices and hard work we are proud to say that BULA Children's Home is a happy, healthy environment for the children. And we thank them endlessly for all they have done to make it the wonderful place that it is.
