After the death of her parents, Maureen dealt with much discrimination from her polygamous uncle with whom she lived. “For us, we were like total strangers to him,” Maureen explained. To escape the family hardship, she lovingly wed to a carpenter who later died from a stray bullet. Maureen is currently living as a widow with her four children and working for KKU. Maureen says that she doesn’t know what she would be doing if she did not have the job with Krochet Kids intl. because now she is able to afford rent, food, and schooling for her children.
“Crocheting. I thought I loved doing retail business but crocheting has turned out to be my most enjoyed activity. Through it, I concentrate and leave other thoughts aside.”
“Love is a gift and if you are not blessed with that special gift you can never help anyone.”
MESSAGE TO KKi
“A very big thank you for starting up this organization. You guys have thought about the women of Northern Uganda whose lives have been wrecked by the rebellion and turned it around and made it so good. Thank you very much for thinking about us. May God bless you and your families. I will always include you in my prayers.”
