Born: January 2004
Isaac is a boy from Northern Uganda, an area devastated by civil war and the LRA. Issac’s mother and father were happily married and had eleven children together. Tragically Isaac’s father developed an illness, was hospitalized and passed in 2012. As the family struggled to recover from the loss of their father, Isaac’s older sister also fell ill paralyzing their family. Isaac was sent to live with extended family in the hopes that he could be taken care of.
Now at Calo Me Lare “Village of Redemption” Isaac is safe, has nutritious meals, attends school, has access to medical attention and receives spiritual/character mentorship.

Northern Uganda has suffered through 25 years of war due to the insurgency of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. The unrest has destabilized the region for decades prohibiting it from developing an infrastructure to support its people. As a result of this war, and the ongoing epidemic of AIDS and malaria, there is estimated to be over 3 million orphans in Uganda. Project Hope Worldwide’s work in this region has involved establishing an orphanage, schools, a medical clinic, vocational training programs, and local churches to support the people.
