While dealing with a severe illness during her childhood, Leah had massive struggles from the beginning. She was forced to drop out of school to care for her mother who was also sick while still dealing with her own sickness. Fortunately, Leah claims that after the church prayed over her and her illness, she was healed. Working at KK Uganda has helped her to provide for her family like never before. She is grateful for the opportunity and loves being apart of the KK Uganda family.

I recently received one of the hats you made from my best friend from Las Vegas, I was recently diagnosed with cancer while I was pregnant with my son. I am currently going through chemo therapy. I have lost all my hair and this hat is going to come in handy as winters in San Francisco can get cold.

Your story is inspiring, KKU is inspiring and when I get passed this illness. I would like to do something for KKU.
Stay strong, Stay empowered to continue to change your life.

From one resilient woman to another, may peace that surpasses understanding be with you always.

God Bless you and your family.

Love from USA,

Aber Leah,
I just recieved a beautiful Betty hat that you made from my boyfriend for Christmas!! I feel some what connected to you in your life now in more ways than just one... It is a beautiful thing that a hat can bring two people together and help make life a little easier. I to also am taking care of my father who is in the hospital after a horrible accident. I have struggled with how to help him and how to deal with all the pain. I feel like God had a special plan for you and I to connect when my hat was ordered because he wanted me to know there are other people out in this world that over come so much themselves and are happy. I looked up your story just now and was shocked to see you help your mother too! I am thrilled to have something so beautiful made by you. It is something i will cherish forever. Hope 2012 is a good year for you and your family. Dreams always come true if you believe <3 I truly hope the purchase of the beautiful hat makes some difference to make your dream of getting land for your family come true. Lots of love! *Celeste* Maine, United States
