Mental health experts have called for mental support for people who grow up in foster homes to help them fully recover.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Ministry Home, located off Kayuga Road a few kilometers from Mukono Town, is where we found these twin sisters, Naomi Apio and Deborah Acheng, who were abandoned by their grandmother in this ministerial home when they were only 10 days old.

Oriented by his belief in Biblical teachings, the founder of Noah’s Ark Ministry’s Children, Peter Buitendijk, says each child deserves a home or a family.
Buitendjik says that together with his team, their goal is to make sure that they trace the children’s backgrounds and re-connect them with their families, though at times it is impossible.

While the majority are perceived differently in society, the story of 21-year-old twins Achieng Deborah and Apio Deborah, who were raised at Noah’s Ark Children Ministry home Mukono from when they were just 10 days old, is quite different.

However, the twins say it is not an easy task growing up without a clear background. Recounting their painful past evokes sorrowful thoughts, and their faces cannot hide it.

Blessed with a technical skill center, Noah’s Ark Children’s Ministry is home to over 186 children and 50 caretakers.

In conclusion, every child has the right to be protected from violence, neglect, abuse, and exploitation, given that three-quarters of Ugandan children experience some form of violence.
