Meet shakil


Shakul got to meet his sponsor, Matt, in #Uganda and they are too cute together!! 🤗🇺🇬😍

Shakul was born with a rare genetic condition meaning he looks a little different. Without access to a doctor his parents didn’t understand his appearance. They abandoned him shortly after birth, but God had a plan to care for him. Namatuvu took her grandson in and now as part of the Compassion program, his life has seen many blessings – one of them being his sponsor!
Last month, Matt was able to visit Shakul and spend a couple days with him and his family. Shakul’s healthy, strong and though he has Waardenburg Syndrome, which makes hearing and talking difficult, he is making a lot of friends at his Compassion Center!
Next year, Shakul will be old enough to start school and his sponsor hopes he can attend one for children with cognitive disabilities, so he can learn how to sign. With a lot of love and support around him, we know that Shakul will continue to grow and develop with confidence!
