Street life

The majority of street children in Uganda live in Kampala, where they depend on begging,
crime, prostitution and street drugs for survival. These children are susceptible to many dangers,
including imprisonment, drug abuse, malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, and even death. Children turn to
the streets in situations of extreme poverty and when they are abandoned or orphaned, and the
need to commit these acts at such a young age can have severe psychological, behavioral and
physical effects on the children. Life is so beautiful. God presents us with this gift of life not to
suffer from what we can have as our right. Health care protection is a hot issue in developing
countries. On paper, kids are protected and have primary care. In reality, the situation is quite,
quite different. Our mutual efforts, our support - all this African children need most of all.
Together, we will fulfill our duty of cherishing every human life.
