His father has been bed ridden for close to 5 years. There has been no clear diagnoses, but sometimes this happens unless you can afford to go to a Kampala hospital. He appears to be deteriorating.
In desperation, Elias’ mother took a job waitressing in a bar, a job no one wants because it often leads to prostitution. His mother has no choice.
Elias recently started second grade at Watoto and turned 8 years old. We are hoping that a sponsorship will give him a happier life than the one he is living with right now. He is the youngest of 4 children.
