Ssebagala Lawerence is a 63 year resident Central Division who retired from his job as a kitchen attendant at a hospital in 2017 after serving for a period of 30 years and was not given any gratuity.

In 2018, he was served an eviction notice by the hospital to evacuate the staff quarters. He wrote a complaint to the Hospital asking them to pay his gratuity so that he can hand over the house but they did not respond. He got to know about the PLA through community meetings that were organized and attended by some PLA staff.

In January 2018, he came to the PLA offices and a notice of consideration of eviction was written to the director which stopped the eviction.  In April 2018, they responded by remitting 6.5 million shillings into his account. He used the money to pay off debts that had accumulated and school fees for children.  He is very grateful to PLA for helping him get his gratuity at zero cost.
