THE STORY OF ADOLF BAGUMA

Laine T. Wagenseller

Los Angeles real estate attorney and LA5 Rotarian Laine Wagenseller met eleven year old Adolf Baguma at an orphanage in a small rural village in Uganda. Laine has been traveling to Uganda every year for the last three years to work with the orphans at the Bringing Hope to the Family orphanage. Adolf is an orphan who had been badly burned on both legs when his aunt threw scalding hot banana leaves on him. The burns went untreated and Adolf’s legs fused together. He walked on all fours. The orphanage found him scavenging for food in a neighboring village and took him in.

When Laine returned to the U.S., he worked with the Children’s Burn Foundation and the world-renowned Grossman Burn Center to bring Adolf to Los Angeles for six months of surgeries. After three surgeries and extensive physical rehabilitation, Adolf is walking again.

Mr. Wagenseller has been awarded a Rotary Club of Los Angeles 2012-2013 Presidential Citation in recognition of his work in bringing an eleven year old Ugandan orphan to Los Angeles for burn surgery.

Adolf’s inspirational story has been highlighted in the Los Angeles Times, Ventura County Star, KCBS, KABC, and other news programs. The Presidential Citation is in recognition of meritorious service and furthering the principles and ideals of the Rotary Way of Life. “For your humanitarian achievements in Uganda and for making the future brighter for Adolf Baguma in conjunction with the Grossman Burn Center. Your leadership and efforts promote Peace Through Service by demonstrating that fellowship and service truly can change the world”, reads the Citation.
