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.

“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.”

“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.”

“I love crocheting because it keeps me busy and away from worries.”

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

    Thank you, Susan Aciro, I love my hodge podge hat. I have visited Uganda, and spent a lot of time in West Nile. I only went through Gulu on the bus. I admire your courage and your hope! Best wishes to you for your family and your future -
