Lawrence

Full name: Okello Lawrence Peter

Birthday: 2nd April 1997

The first three children to arrive at James Dunn House of Hope were brothers Lawrence and Simon and their sister Constance. The siblings are from Katawi - which is near Soroti in Northern Uganda. With their parents dying the children were left living with their Uncle, but he didn't have enough money to look after or feed the children and they were left struggling and very unhappy.

Lawrence enjoys football and drawing pictures. He is not sure what he wants to be when he is older, but would enjoy a job involving football or to become a soldier. Lawrence admits that before moving to the orphanage he was not happy, Lawrence remembers living in camps, and searching for food. Lawrence says now he is very happy and thanks his sponsors very much. Lawrence is a hard working boy; he is very loyal, caring and sporty.
