One Woman's Life Changing Journey to Uganda
One Woman's Life Changing Journey to Uganda

Paula always felt that God had blessed her with the knowledge, passion, and desire to help the less fortunate as her life’s purpose.   Her pathway to fulfilling her purpose was right on schedule.  She married, raised a family of four and taught in the urban city of Cleveland.  After retiring, Paula continued to bear witness to the movement of the Spirit reminding her of her purpose.  She got involved in volunteer work which led her to meet Sr. Mary Francis Harrington who was engaged with the Lost Boys of Sudan project.  It was through Sister Mary Francis’ involvement with the Sudan’s Isaac Water Well project that Paula first met Father Donald Dunson, the founder of the Saint Kizito Foundation.

What began as a planned trip to the Sudan to check on the Water Well project ended up, due to civil unrest in the Sudan, in a trip to Uganda.  Fr. Don put Paula in touch with the St. Kizito Foundation representative in Africa who met her at Entebbe airport along with some Good Samaritan sisters who she ended up staying with for over a month in Uganda.
