Obwaagazi Family Sponsorship Program
Fiona lives together with her mother, father and 7 siblings in Jinja. They live in a temporary house with a dirt floor. There is no electricity and no running water. The family get water in front of the house at the neighbours and they don't have access to safe drinking water and they use a public latrine.
The family have recently gone through a very traumatic experience when a fire started in the area they stay. Although their house wasn't affected by the fire itself, many thieves took advantage of the situation and stole from many of the homes while people were evacuated and helping out their neighbours. Everything they had was taken and this left them struggling to continue their business of selling fish and buying food.
Despite all of this the family are still happy and doing what they can to make money. Fiona is a wonderful student and she is making wonderful progress!
