“The support and hope Compassion has given me in my life has motivated me to have love and care for children with disabilities. Without Compassion, I couldn’t have been where I am. Because I grew up seeing many children with disabilities who have not succeeded in life, and how the community minimizes them and treats them with negativity, I wanted to form a ministry to help these children and change their disability into ability.”

— Shamim, a Compassion graduate deaf since childhood and founder of Sherinah’s New Hope, a ministry for children with disabilities in Uganda.
