Aquinas Center will host speaker Denis Okema on Tuesday, October 14th at 7PM. Denis’ powerful story follows his experience growing up in Uganda
during a time of conflict where he weathered kidnapping and forced labor, among other challenges. Eventually, Okema came to the United States as a refugee and later enrolled in a Master’s degree program at Chestnut Hill College here in Philadelphia. His presentation will include time for discussion as well as feature an opportunity to purchase fair trade items that support UNIFAT, a school that he sees is making a difference for children in Uganda. All are welcome to this meaningful time of sharing. To read more before attending, click on this story.
