In 1998, then U.S. president Bill Clinton met a baby who was named after him in a village in Uganda.
Now, fourteen years later, the former president was reunited with his "Ugandan son."
According to the Clinton Foundation's website, the baby was named Bill Clinton because he was born in the same month the American head of state first arrived in the African nation.
The Ugandan newspaper the Daily Monitor reports that the two Bill Clintons met in Entebbe, Uganda last Friday. The teen, whose full name is Master Bill Clinton Kaligani, was airlifted to Entebbe and sat down with Clinton for lunch.
According to AllAfrica.com, Kaligani had to miss an exam to make the meeting but the boy was thrilled to meet the man who has made such an impact on his life.
“[Clinton] was very happy to see the boy. He asked him what he wants and the boy informed him he wants to become a doctor. He promised to look after his 'son' in every way," Betty Namugosa, the teenager's mother, said.
“I feel good. He told me he also wanted me to be a doctor, that I should work hard and pass in my studies,” Kaligani said, according to the Daily Monitor.
The Innovations For Poverty Action blog explains that Clinton was in Uganda to support an effort to "eliminate diarrheal deaths among Ugandan children." The Clinton Health Access Initiative, which the former president founded in 2002, is working with the Ugandan Ministry of Health to help increase access to effective treatments for diarrhea.
