A NEW HOME WILL CHANGE ANNET'S DESPERATE SITUATION
Due to poverty, Annet and her husband couldn't afford a scan during pregnancy, so she discovered she was having triplets the day she delivered them. “When my husband found out that it was not twins we were having but triplets, he switched off his phone so I could no longer contact him. In our community, twins are considered a blessing but triplets are considered a curse. He wouldn’t even come and pay the hospital bill.”
Bereft at her husband’s abandonment and despairing at how she would raise her babies and their older sister alone, Annet was at a loss. Her husband’s family despised the babies as a curse, and her husband even threatened to kill them. Staff from Compassion's local church partner in Businywa, Eastern Uganda learned of her situation and provided her with financial help, food and clothing.
On Wednesday, July 18, the triplets will be celebrating their 4th birthday! Give them the best birthday present ever - a safe home.
If additional money is raised beyond what is needed, it will be used to help other Compassion-assisted children and families build or rebuild safe, new homes.
Your donation is tax-deductible and you will be receipted by Compassion for your year-end giving records.
