Just after wrapping production on the final season of The Middle, Patricia Heaton headed to Uganda to volunteer with World Vision USA.

While still stateside, the ABC star posted a picture requesting that her followers join her in prayer for a Sudanese teenager named Victor. Victor fled his country with his three siblings in 2016, says World Vision. The organization has helped Victor find a foster family after he was separated from his parents, and to get into school in Uganda.

Send a prayer for Victor below: Patricia Heaton will read them to him IN PERSON this week! Check back for a video,” read the caption under Victor’s picture on the organizations Facebook page. 700 people sent in prayers.

Prayers wanted! Victor is 14 and a refugee from South Sudan. He and his 3 siblings fled in 2016, and we've helped him…
