Oliver Nakitanda’s Story

At five years of age, Oliver became part of the CARITAS For Children family when our location coordinator for Africa, came across her in a remote village in Uganda, wandering along the road near a field where she had been working. A tiny little girl with a hoe bigger than herself. Undernourished, dressed in tatters, all that she knew was working under the sun as she had been doing since she was able to walk.
