pader orphans caring project

Organization Description: 

Pader Orphans Caring Project which is known as (POCP) is local non-profit making organization which is registered with Pader District local government here in Uganda. POCP was started by Akena Richard who was a former child soldier It is found in Acholibur sub-county, Pader district bordering Kitgum District from the south in Northern Uganda. Pader orphans caring project is committed to restoring Hope , Healing and Rehabilitation into the lives of former child soldiers, street kids, disability, elders and orphaned by the AIDS epidemic and the brutal LRA war. Our desire is to see a region rise up again on the foundations of hope and love rather than remain oppressed by fear and destruction. We believe in the biblical mandates to care for orphans, including: James 1:27; Matthew 25:35-40; Matthew 28:19-20. Pader Orphans Caring Project seeks to save the lives of orphaned and abandoned children throughout the war-torn region. When I returned to Northern Uganda I experienced a level of pain and heartbreak that shook me to my core seeing people suffering with their children. I met some traumatized children and they showed no emotion. A six year old boy who had his face set on fire because he was of no use to the rebels. Youth forced to kill and eat their own parents. Richard Akena who is truly an angel on earth. Abducted by the LRA, he was brutally tortured and forced to kill daily. The LRA killed his entire family. It was only by the grace of God that Richard escaped. Richard is now fighting to rescue the orphans so hurt by the war.
