Piloya Vicky

During the war, Piloya Vicky and her family often went days without food and struggled to find safe places to sleep at night. Because they were always on the move, Vicky’s family lost all that they owned. As a beneficiary for KKU, Vicky is now able to provide for her children and send them to school. She has also started a small pig farm with the money that she has saved while in the program.

“My future dream is to educate my children to the highest level, buy a plot of land and build a family home.”

“Love is when you do good things for others.”

“I thank the founders of Krochet Kids intl. for initiating this project and I pray that God blesses them and gives them the ability to help more vulnerable women who are suffering in the communities of Northern Uganda.”

    I love the Madeline hat you made in maroon yarn, which my son bought for me in Las Vegas, NV, USA as a Christmas gift for me this year. His is the product of a broken home and I am trying to get back on my feet after a painful second divorce. But our challenges pale next to yours! And yet your gorgeous smile radiates positivity and inspires me to stay upbeat through adversity. Your quote about love says it all, Piloya Vicky. I will think of you with love each time I wear my warm beautiful cap with pride here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. God bless you and yours. Sincerely, Lynn Lessard
