Moses leaving Naguru remand centre and starting the journey back to GI ASCO, Jinja.

  Moses was being kept in a remand centre because he had been living on the street

Posted in General | Comments Off on Moses leaving Naguru remand centre and starting the journey back to GI ASCO, Jinja.

We are very pleased to welcome Nagiro Moses to GI ASCO. Moses (aged 10) is the younger brother of Lomer and Peter and has spent the last 18 months in a remand centre after being detained for being street homeless.

  Moses could not hide his excitement when he saw Uncle Gerald had arrived to complete his discharge and travel with him back to GI ASCO
