Rescued in Uganda

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

Born on July 4, 2009, John arrived at Baby Watoto, a home for babies in Gulu, Uganda, when he was only 9 months old. Born to parents living in captivity, he had recently been rescued when he came to us. John was very small for his age and moderately malnourished. It took him a few days to settle into Baby Watoto but we soon learned that he has a stunning smile that he is willing to show anyone who would give him a cuddle!

John has really thrived since being at Baby Watoto and although he is still small he is definitely catching up quickly. He is an independent boy and often goes off exploring when he thinks no one is watching. In mid-December John will move on to the Watoto Children’s Village in Gulu where he will continue to receive much love and support. Thank you partners for helping to give John such a great start in life! Through your generous giving we were able to fully fund building of the babies’ home in Gulu, which opened in April of this year; as well as provide support for monthly operational costs. Together we are truly better!
