Collins was living with his stepmother who used to mistreat him by pouring hot water on him. She would also beat him with an electric wire. The constant abuse forced Collins to run away and become a street child in Kampala.
Collins has said that he has no desire to go back home and live under those conditions. Collins now stays at the RUHU safe house where he has made friends and is gaining self-esteem and a sense of hope.
Collins would like to be a lawyer when he grows up.
At AT4A we get to join the RUHU orphanage to help Collins live a new story! We get to join our friends at RUHU to bring hope and encouragement to children like him. Our words of support, love, and partnership to see needs fulfilled, mean the world to these kids.
Thank you for joining this cause, and for helping us raise awareness simply by listening, and sharing, the stories of these kids. By supporting these lives through whatever means has been placed on each of our hearts, we will see lives not only sustained, but dreams fulfilled! Thank you for your support!
