When Grace joined Vangrace Compassion Ministries, she felt a “Divine calling” of being a caregiver upon her life. Though she didn’t exactly know at that time what it would look like, she knew this was where she was meant to be and she saw it as a gift and blessing from God to be able to help the innocent orphans and vulnerable children at God’s Village.

Grace born 1993 spent her childhood in northern Uganda refugee camps staying with the mother after her father was taken away by the rebels. She studied her primary and secondary level right from the UN IDP (Internally Displaced Person) Refugee Camps still in Northern Uganda, though the situation wasn’t good at all as we all can imagine IDP Refugee Camps Life style. But though she passed through all that miserable life, Grace knew that she would to do something to give love and encouragement to others. Grace’s Dream was “caring for innocent war affected children, orphans.”
Grace’s ways of helping our children are compassionate, patient and understanding. She can handle all challenges that children come with through counseling, tendering to them and making them feel at home as any parent would do.
When we asked Grace how she feels when caring for the children, she said “Seeing these children with jiggers, crying, and so dirty, it bathers me and makes me cry too. So that’s one of the reasons as to why I involve myself in helping these little vulnerable children.”

As all Caregivers know, there are good and bad days with care giving. Grace is no different. She gets down when she comes across things that she can’t ‘make right’ mainly for the children and she relies on God because she knows He is the only one who can ‘fix’ things.’
As Vangrace Compassion Ministries, we are so honored that God led Grace to our doorstep, and consequently to many doorsteps where her passion, love and patience touch so many lives!
