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.
