THE BLANKET PROJECT

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

I am called Opoka Joel, I came from Lira district in Northern part of Uganda. I came to Kampala city in year 2000 simply because of the northern war.

In the north we had a serious terrorist called “Kony” and his team under the the movement of the Lord’s resistance army, they were killing people, young old and disabled without mercy.

Personally,I faced the consequences in two ways;

My uncle was a primary whop was a primary teacher and he was so dear me because he was paying my school fee,he was captured and killed. Secondly my elder brother who was to carry me under a bicycle to go to school was also arrested in year 2000 and he did not come back up to now. The unbearable condition above forced me to come to Kampala and on reaching the city I found very many people with disabilities like me whom I joined them they showed a point to sit and beg for money for survival. However, this experience was yet another tough one similar to the home life

I used to sleep under a house and cover myself with a sack, sometimes I would enter the sack like seeds in order to avoid coldness which could not be easily avoided I began to have to conflicting ideas, either to go back home or continue my life on the streets .

Fortunately enough, a savior and a burden carrier by the time had in 1998 bought a home for persons with disabilities and they were already settled as they would go to bed and go back to sleep in the house. When I learned of this through a friend, I also went to the home and I was welcome given a room, bed, mattress and a blanket. Life become better even than the one at home because of all these provisions. For this I started valuing Lisbeth as a mother up to now.

In the year 2007 Mother Lisbeth came to Uganda with two ladies from Denmark by names, Pernille and Elizabeth. These three ladies trained the three of us with disabilities in the skills and techniques of making blankets, we were Julius, James and Myself.

From October 2007 we started the production of these blankets up to date. The blanket project has brought a lot of changes to my life mainly in the following ways:-

  1. No longer go for begging on the street.

  2. I can provide basic needs to my family e.g clothes, food.

  3. I can buy personal needs and as a result, I am a smart disabled person.

  4. I can transport my self to my home district at will because of Lisa’s support.

  5. I have built a temporary house for my family.

  6. I can provide medical support to my family.

  7. I feel employed.

  8. I gained respect from the community unlike in begging.

  9. I am an independent person.

  10. I managed to buy two goats and a cow. An many others.

All these achievement are as a result of mother Lisa’s sympathy on persons with disabilities in Uganda. My sincere thanks goes to Lisa, Pernille, and Elizabeth.

May God bless you.
