The leader of Desert Seed Foundation, Stephen Okiror, has kept us abreast of the progress that has been made over the last few days. He said that Lyazi Paul never left the porch as they were working.

He is SO HAPPY to have his new wheelchair and he is feeling absolutely blessed that everyone is working so hard to take care of him at his home.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed and supported and donated to this project through The Everett and Austin Project. God is good and He is with us. Bless His name.

It is truly more blessed to give than to receive. Feels so good to be able to give back and share the wealth of the west a little bit with those in need in Africa.


Here is what Lyazi Paul had to deal with at his home. We were able to give him a wheelchair but his home was not equipped for it at all. So thanks to our sister organization in Uganda, Desert Seed Foundation, we were able to learn of the need and fund a ramp project.

Here is what it looked like after a couple of hours. Lyazi Paul would not leave the porch! He was so excited!

I'm a born-again christian, sold out to serving the needs of the less fortunate and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I founded The Everett and Austin Project in October 2018 to honor my 2 boys posthumously by helping people living in poverty going thru Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. My sons each died of Duchenne, Austin in 2012 at age 16 and Everett in 2017 at age 22.
