Obwaagazi Child Sponsorship Program
Alfat is an 12 year old boy who lives in Masese, Uganda with his mother. Alfat became ill with cerebral malaria when he was a few days old, which resulted in seizures, developmental delay, and speech delay. Alfat started talking when he was 4 years old. His seizures are managed through medication, but he does get them when he gets high fevers. Alfat attended kindergarten and first grade in a local primary school, but was kicked out of the school because he “was unable to learn.” He has already made progress at Obwaagazi Academy and we know he will do great things with his life! Alfat’s favorite color is brown and he loves to play football. We are so happy to have Alfat as a member of our Obwaagazi family.
