About
US:
Musana Community Development Organization
was created when our team of founders of Ugandan and American University
students discovered 162 children living at an orphanage in the worst conditions
imaginable. These children, ages 4-14, were sleeping in three tiny rooms
without beds or blankets on a rocky dirt floor. Rats climbed over them as they
slept and their bedrooms turned to mud when it rained. Their bodies were
covered in rashes and many suffered from bacterial infections from the
unsanitary latrines. During the day, they would fight over a position in the
long line to receive their one meal a day that only teased their empty bellies.
Day to day, these children were hungry, bored, uneducated, unloved, and
completely hopeless.
