Prayers for Bogere


Bogere Swalik is a 23 year old man from from Jinja, Uganda who was attacked with acid in early 2016.  He was attacked by a man who wanted to take away his wife.  He has been in the hospital for seven months because the wounds are deep and severe.  His whole chest was burnt and his face, arms and body are swollen.   The attack also left him blind in his left eye.

Bogere’s wife takes care of him but otherwise, no one from his home visits him at the hospital.  The CERESAV team has been helping care for him as much as possible.  Bogere needs a lot of care in terms of food because his body is swollen due to lack of food.  He only gets food from the hospital once a day and the food which the hospital provides for patients is posho and beans and this cannot help his burnt body to regain the fresh skin.  In fact, his situation is worsening every day because his whole body is swollen.  The nurses are advising him to eat a lot of food containing proteins, fat and calories, for example eggs, milk, meat, and fish to enable the wounds heal very fast but he cannot afford them.

He needs a lot of prayers because last week he almost lost his life due to too much pain and over swelling of the body and next week he will undergo a surgery which is not easy.  Therefore he is requesting everyone outside there to support him physically, psychologically and spiritually.

My name is Bongere Swaliki aged 23, I was attacked on 23 Feb 2016 by my best friend over relationship issues and my right eye was blinded.  I would like to thank everyone who has helped in terms of prayers, food donation and medical support.

    Dearest Bogere,
    You have been through so much and deserve to be healed and well again. I will keep you in my thoughts and meditations each day in the hope that you will regain your strength and find it in your heart to forgive the mentally sick man who did this to you. I hope that the donation will help you get the proper nutrition you so need.

    Hello Bogere,
    your story has moved me, made me wish to be there with you, to help you. Because I cannot be there physically to support you, I am sending you my prayers, wishes for recovery, to be healed on the inside and the outside.
    From the bottom of my heart I wish you strength, both mentally and physically to keep on fighting until you are recovered and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
