Obwaagazi Child Sponsorship Program
Mpala is a 8 year old boy who lives in Masese, Uganda. He lives with his mother who is a digger in the gardens. Mpala was born with a severe heart condition and needs surgery but his mother can not afford it. He started walking at 18 months, and just started talking by trying to say "mama" in September 2015. He attended a local school for one term, but was kicked out of school because the teachers did not know how to teach a student with Down Syndrome. Mpala loves playing football with his friends, playing with cars and singing at church. He is so eager to learn and always runs up to the Obwaagazi staff and gives us giant hugs!
