Pastor Wilson Bugembe is the second born of six boys all of whom were borne to HIV positive parents in Masaka. Wilson and his last born brother Brian narrowly escaped the epidemic when they were negative at birth.

At the age of 10,Wilson Bugembe ran away from their home village in Masaka after the death of his father in 1995.

When his parents and four of his brothers died, his grandfather began mistreating him and he fled to Kampala to live with his grandmother. Life with grandmother was sheer survival for the fittest as he could barely have anything for himself, not education , good feeding or good health.

It was then when Wilson Bugembe a senior pastor of Light the World Ministries resorted to Kampala streets. He ate from the city dustbin and slept under a tree for over two years. And thi where a good Samaritan had to get him from.
