From Hopelessness to a Life of Hope and Vision
Robert’s Story
With much appreciation, I thank RMI for their hand that got me when I was about to reach the end of the road.
I joined RMI in 2007 when I was in Primary one at Kasisi. I am an orphan. My father passed on when I was still young. My mother left me with my grandparent and life was very hard. As if that was not enough, my life was off and on due to sickness. I was born with sickle cell anemia and would collapse almost every week.
I thank God for RMI, for becoming a parent to me. Even when I was weak and not doing well in school, I was loved and cared for by the RMI leaders here in Uganda. My sponsors believed in me and fought for my life. Now I am a man with hope and a vision. Through RMI support I was received treatment for my illness and equipped with skills of life.
Due to my illness, I could not continue with formal school, but my sponsors continued to love and support me. In 2018 I was given a popcorn machine to begin a small business. Later I got a hands-on training of repairing phones, a skill I would like to improve on when resources allow.
I am grateful that RMI came into my life, may the almighty God richly bless, my beloved sponsors and the Church of the Living God.
I am forever grateful.
