The boy who runs: The Odyssey of Julius Achon

The boy who runs - Julius Achon
John Brant

Julius was taken from his home at the age of 11 and forced to become a child soldier. He overcame challenges that no child should face. After making two Olympic games and building a life in America, Julius returned to Uganda to help his communities who were suffering as a result of war.

After their meeting, Eloise promised to fulfill his dream of restoring hope to his village in Northern Uganda after decades of civil war. Love Mercy sees a future where Northern Uganda is transformed through simple solutions to poverty.
