When Jeannette Quinn first traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2006 she knew it would be an enriching experience. But then she met a little boy named Opiyo Ivan and her life took the most unexpected turn.

Jeannette Quinn has started the Opiyo Ivan Memorial Fund, and proceeds will go to support her organization, AFENDS, which provides services for individuals (and their families) in northern Uganda who suffer from epilepsy or nodding disease/syndrome.
