    KNIGHTS HELP AFRICAN AIDS ORPHANS

    Providing a sense of hope for children in sub-Saharan Africa.

    “Of course, the Knights of Columbus cannot do everything — we cannot solve every problem. But where we can help, we do so. And I believe that we can help alleviate the suffering of at least some children orphaned by AIDS,” the Supreme Knight Carl Anderson

    With financial support from the Knights of Columbus, a primary school in Uganda now provides education to more than 300 pupils, ranging in age from 4 to 13, including 160 girls and 60 boys who board there.

    The school’s construction was funded by the Knights of Columbus beginning in 2012.

    “This partnership between the Apostles of Jesus and the Knights of Columbus has made such a huge difference — more than we ever expected,” said Father Paul Gaggawala, director of mission promotion for the Apostles of Jesus. “Dreams that we once felt were impossible to ever be realized have come true because of this partnership.”

    During his annual report at the Supreme Convention in August 2011, Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson announced that the Supreme Council would partner with the Apostles of Jesus to expand services for orphaned children in Uganda and Kenya.

    “Of course, the Knights of Columbus cannot do everything — we cannot solve every problem. But where we can help, we do so. And I believe that we can help alleviate the suffering of at least some children orphaned by AIDS,” the supreme knight said.
