Habari (Hello), my name is Abdul Shakur
9 yrs. old
Entered the Program: May 2021
Abdul (who goes by the name Kasozi) was born with a disability in his legs which prevented him from being able to walk. Physical deformities are stigmatized in Kasozi’s culture and consequently his mother abandoned him at birth.
Kasozi is now living at an orphanage that cares for children with special needs and is doing well. He is receiving physiotherapy regularly and is getting stronger. He is able to use orthopedic shoes and a walker but the process is a gradual one and he will continue to require long-term care.
