In the Bidi Bidi refugee camp in Uganda two years ago, a back problem left this little girl, Esther, with numbness in her legs that led to her inability to walk. Conscience International is paying for her rehabilitation by sending this man, a physiotherapist, on a 12-hour journey over dirt roads twice a month to help in her recovery. Already the sixth grader has returned to school and it is reported her grades "are great." Eventually, it is hoped she will no longer need the crutches but here she is seen trying them out for the first time. Haryet Hamony, the Dream Program coordinator for the Refuge & Hope Center in Kampala, coordinates this work on behalf of Conscience International. She, too, makes the 12-hour journey each month just to check on Esther's progress. It's labor of love.
