Cinderella Children - Rescuing Children from the Ashes of War
In 1991, Irene Gleeson, a typical middle class grandmother, left her comfortable north Sydney home in Australia, for one of the most dangerous places on the planet - northern Uganda, Agrica. With 1.6 million people displaced by the Lord's Resistance Army and 2 million children orphaned, she began to teach and feed a handful of war traumatized children under a Mango tree. Today, there are over 6,000 children being fed and educated every day on the grounds of Kutgum Childcare Servants. Irene Gleeson has been at the end of a rebel's rifle many times, but with strong faith in God she lives to tell her story - a story that must be told.
