Josephine

Meet Josephine.  She is over 100 years old and lives in Teso District in Northeastern Uganda.

She  remembers when Africans in her community wore no clothes.  She lived through Idi Amin.  She survived the Lord’s Resistance Army.  She lives alone in a traditional hut, getting some food from neighbours who watch out for her.  Last week I watched her walk into a windy oncoming storm to get home.  She said, the next morning that she just made it.

It was an incredible privilege to have met her last week.
