We are always thrilled to share incredible success stories of the children at Watoto. Today, we pay homage to two 4-year-olds, Simon and Junior from Watoto's Bbira Children’s Village.
Simon and Junior were among the first babies to be welcomed into Baby Watoto when the programme launched in 2007. Junior in particular, was a very sickly baby. In fact, there was little hope of his survival when he first joined us. But with prayer, medical attention and support, Junior managed to pull through.
In 2008, the boys graduated to the children’s village where they are now thriving under the care of a loving Watoto mother. They are also enjoying their nursery school in the village.
Over the weekend, the boys were tucked into cute little black suits, majestically walking down the aisle as page boys during the wedding of Watoto staff members, James and Nicola Sekajja in Kampala, Uganda.
It was an incredible moving moment watching the boys play, dance and share in the Watoto family moment.
