During the war in northern Uganda, Lucy would sleep in hideouts in the bush to avoid getting abducted by the rebel army. Food was scarce and life was hard.  At one point during a hideout with the rest of the family, she gave birth to her third child. After the war, she did not have any proper source of income until she joined the KK Uganda family. She is now paying for five of her children to go to school and is sure of every meal.

“I plan to save as much money as possible which will enable me buy a plot of land.”

“The most enjoyable activity is singing gospel songs and participating in church activities.”

“Thank you for creating a program that enables women to have a source of livelihood and are able to contribute to the development of the region.”

I send my prayers to you and your family. I read your story and cried my eyes out. I am glad the rebels never found you, how horrible it must have been. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Amono,
Today in Poulsbo Washington, USA, i found one of your crocheted beanie hats in a store.
As all the other winter apparel had been put away, this was the only one on the shelf which was found by surprise by a sales associate. Its lime green and green happens to be my favorite color.
Fate or meant to be...? Maybe both.
Its a lime green color and kind of a loose knit style. Its beautiful and perfect fit.
Thank you for your creativity in making this hat.
Im happy to help contribute to your cause in providing for you and your family. After buying the hat, i read your biography on line. I felt more connected to the maker and her efforts to establish a happy life.
I will cherish this hat and many more that i buy from KKU. But this one i will treasure in its own uniqueness and where it came from.
