Atala Receives New Home

Apac, Uganda — Back in October, we brought you the story of Atala Tericania, a handicapped widow who lost her house and business in a fire last September. Several Bright Hope allies heard her story and responded to her situation. We are blessed by these allies who made it possible for Bright Hope to come alongside Atala and build her a new brick house.

This house will allow her and her family a safe place to live. The front section of the home will be rented out to earn income to help support her family. We are told that now that Atala has this house, she has gained the respect of many in the community and is now seen as a value instead of a burden. Thank you for supporting for Atala and for helping her create a better future for herself.
