Richard T.

Birthday: 6/20/2013

Location: Kiburara, Uganda

 

Richard lost his father to HIV/AIDS in 2018. This left him and his 3 siblings in the sole care of their mother who is also caring for 2 other children who lost both of their parents. She does not have a source of income and has only has a small plot of land that does not provide enough food for the family. As a result, she works in other people’s farms in exchange for food. Thankfully, Richard is a healthy boy and he has been able to remain in school in spite of financial challenges. He is currently in 1st grade at a local primary school.

Richard lives in a village near Kiburara, Uganda.  Runyankore and Rukiga are the main languages spoken in this area.  Kiburara is also home to Hope Community School, established by Covenant Mercies in 2020.
