CASE STORY OF AKULLO

Akullo was born to the late Onyanga and Akello in Aromo sub county Lira district.
Currently she stays with her uncle Mr. Otim and his wife Alobo in Barogole under Lira municipality in Lira district

Her parents died while she was in primary two at Lira central primary school, `After my parents dying all our property was taken by our relatives and according to my uncle the bank also took some things like land, My father was rich but after his death we began to suffer and had almost nothing`.

`My mother died when I was 2 years old, according to my uncle, my father also died of the same disease HIV/AIDS, my father refused to take his medication and because of that he died early and we are now suffering.` sadly narrated Akullo.

The uncle has a family of 9 people comprising of 2 adults and 7 children and they all stay in a 2 roomed house with some of the children sleeping in the sitting room, “I sometimes sleep on the chairs, the first person to get to the room is the one who sleeps on the mattress that’s placed on the floor since we have no beds”, shared Akullu.

Akullu is on good terms with her uncle but her aunty lobo does not like her, The aunt calls her names ”that am so stupid and because of that she doesn’t want me at her place since her children also don’t have school fees”.

According to Dolly one day she failed to fetch water since she didn’t feel well, and because of this her aunty beat her up so badly that she injured her knees and up to date she can’t move properly due to the beating.
“After my aunty beat me up, she was taken to police by my uncle, but she was forgiven after sometime, she has also tried to change now”, explained Dolly.

After the injury, PLA took Dolly to Adina rehabilitation center in Lira, it provides rehabilitation services to mainly children in Lira district free of charge.
We hope to see a change in Dolly in the coming months as her rehabilitation process had begun with the organization.

Like other beneficiaries, Dolly’s best time is when she is at school since she gets the freedom to play and also have lunch with her friends.


“I really appreciate the support that I get from the organization, I pray God blesses the people who send us scholastic materials and fees”, expressed Dolly.
