Here Our Stories: Samwel
Orphans Africa (OA) is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charitable organization that began in 2007 with the coming together of three ordinary people whose desire was to build peace between nations by providing assistance to those who are most vulnerable.
When Samwel was 3 years old, his father died from disease. Samwel is now 5 years old and has an 8 year-old sister. He loves soccer. His mother is a street vendor which brings in a very small amount of money for survival. Because of so little income, there is not enough for clothes, shoes and food. His teacher says Samwel is the first to start asking for lunch at school due to hunger at home. Samwel says he likes his teacher.
