Caring for the One

I was nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. What kind of care would our child with “special needs” be receiving in an environment where all the children, by definition, have special needs? We have known Kakumba Marvin for about 10 years, a special boy among many children of a single mother with no visible means of support. As we drove the bus through the gates of his school in Entebbe and realized that Marvin was opening the gates for us, grinning and helpful and responsible and thriving, all my fears turned to relief. Conversations with the Headmistress confirmed our observations. Marvin thrives in that environment. He is strong, happy, and for the first time in his life, speaking a few words. Once again, Divine Care Ministries proved themselves effective at using our resources (God’s resources) to help a child, even a child easy to overlook. At the end of another breathtaking visit to Uganda, this moment with our sponsored child was the highlight.
