From Margaret in Uganda:
More touching stories continue coming up in our visit to primary schools.
This little girl, age 5, said she only has one name: Maimuna. We inquired from the school administration as to the reason was she only had a first name. Maimuna was dumped in garbage pit at her birth by her parents who couldn’t be trusted.
Imagine: most families are so excited when a new family member is born. Gifts, visits and all kinds of congratulatory messages surround the family.
But Maimuna was fighting for her life. Passersby heard her cries!
Fast forward to today: she is now 5 but without a stable home. Golden Heart Foundation has taken her to love her like other kids, and she received a new name: “Nakavubu,” the founder!
