Aciro Susan

With determination, Susan learned to live positively under very difficult circumstances.  After being mistreated by family members, she fled with her husband to Gulu town where neither one of them had any source of an income. During her pregnancy, she soon learned that she was HIV positive and was heartbroken.  But she has never given up hope.  In order to make a living for her and her family, she attempted to sell clothes on the side of the road until she became apart of the KKU family.  Susan claims that Krochet Kids intl. is a godsend to her.

DREAM FOR FUTURE
“I plan to save money so that I can buy a plot of land and build a house in the memory of Krochet Kids intl. I also plan to pay for my children to go to school with the money I am earning.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“The most beautiful things about Northern Uganda are the very friendly and hospitable people that make life so easy unlike back in Sudan where the opposite is true.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT CROCHETING
“I love crocheting because it keeps me busy and away from worries.”

LOVE DEFINED
“Love means feeling for others the same way you feel for your own self.”

    Aciro Susan, I want to thank you so much for the beautiful bow you made me! I love wearing it, and I’ve been looking for one just about everywhere! I get so many compliments on your work, and how cute the bow is. Every time I wear it, I’ll think of you and your family. But most of all, I’ll think of the strength that you have in your heart, and how you can just focus on your family and their needs. You’re truly an inspiring person, and even though we probably won’t meet each other, I hope you know that you inspire me every time I wear this bow, and I really thank you for that. You’re an amazing woman Aciro Susan!

    Susan,
    Thank you so much for my lovely hat. My boyfriend’s grandmother gave it to me for Christmas and when she told me that I could look up the person who made it I was thrilled. It is rare that you can meet the person (even virtually) who created something that we then purchase from a store. I am so glad to learn about you and your life and your connection with Krochet Kids. I hope you keep crocheting and finding your solace through such positive activities. God bless!

    Dear Aciro Susan,

    I thank you for the beautiful golden hat that you crocheted. My son and daughter-in-law gave it to me as a Christmas gift. It is especially dear to me because I have traveled to Uganda 4 times. I have been to many areas in Uganda, such as Kampala, Bushenyi and Ishaka where I have worked with Sister Ephrance Nuwamanya. I think we have passed through Gulu and perhaps I can travel there one day and meet you! I want to especially encourage you to stay strong. You have my greatest admiration for the way that you work so hard to provide for your family and for your vision for a house for the Krochet Kids. I will pray for your health and the strength to continue. May God bless you and keep you safe.

    Love,
    Becky Porter
