When the lockdowns began in Uganda, Mark* suddenly found himself without work and as a result, had no means of providing for his family. As the breadwinner of his home, Mark began to despair and spiraled into a mental breakdown. Our partner, Uganda Without Orphans, heard of Mark’s mental health situation and saw that the children were beginning to suffer as well. The team acted quickly to get Mark to a hospital where he was able to receive the medical help he needed. Within three weeks’ time he had made drastic improvements and was able to return home to his children and thankfully they were prevented from ever being taken to an orphanage! Today, Uganda Without Orphans and the local church are providing ongoing counseling for Mark and food provisions for his family now that the family has been reunited.
