I am the treasurer for this non-profit. I volunteer this service. I have been involved since late 2006 when I asked Julie (the founder) if she could use a treasurer. She was most grateful for my offer and asked if I would like to go with her to Gulu!! I was excited, to say the least! So, in the summer of 2007 I traveled with Julie and her husband, Jerry to that remote part of the globe. What I saw there has changed my life forever. The Acholi people of that area are the most beautiful people I have ever met. They are truly kind, loving, faith-filled, and scarred. The Lord's Resistance Army wrecked havoc upon them for over 20 years! So now, Hearts for a Safe Harbor is trying to help those youth most affected by that war to bounce back. They have an Ugandan director, Nancy Lamunu, that is working very hard with those youth...to build their self-esteem...to learn the truth about HIV/AIDS...to become active, productive citizens. So, please pray about this organization. Help in anyway you can. God will bless you! Thank you. Gerianne Klepfer.
