October 2013 Report - Latest report from Acheru
I’ve just received some reports written by Rose, the new social worker at Acheru, as she gets to know some of the children. The following is part of one story:
“God’s work is portrayed in Acheru because many children who came crying are leaving with a smile. We always say that God is good all the time and all the time God is good, and it’s true because we have tried to help many people who come from different parts of Uganda, and they go away glorifying our work.
Fiona’s story:
She has been treated for several years following an accident. People had lost hope of her recovering. She said:
“Aunt Rose, I wanted to die because of severe pain. I couldn’t walk, or even get to the toilet. I had wounds which were not healing, and I was tired of bothering my mum and sisters. One day I told my sister to buy me poison, and had my last picture taken with them. That night I started vomiting and when my condition worsened, my sisters told my mum I drank poison and they rushed me to hospital.”
Fiona says that following her time in Acheru she sees a reason for living, she no longer smells like before and gets restful nights. All her family are so happy with how Acheru has changed her life.
“I was thin because I had no appetite. The smell from my wounds caused me to vomit when they brought food near me. I thought I was dying but now I can smile. People at home are waiting to see me. I have been hospitalised for 3 years. Long live Acheru staff, long live Acheru donors.”
This is one of a number of stories, and we hope soon to have full details on the website. We can’t imagine what would have happened to them without Acheru.
