Father Donald H. Dunson is a moral theologian on the faculty of St. Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology in Wickliffe, Ohio. He earned a doctorate in Religious Studies from The Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium in 1994.

He currently teaches courses in fundamental moral theology, sexual ethics, global issues, and social justice. Recently his research has been focused on the plight of vulnerable people.

In 2001, he lived in East Central Africa while documenting the plight of AIDS orphans, homeless children, child soldiers, and sexually exploited youths. Father Dunson has continued to visit there each year, living in solidarity with the youths he writes about and offering them educational assistance through the founding of the St. Kizito Foundation.

His first book, “No Room at the Table: Earth’s Most Vulnerable Children,” published by Orbis Books in the Fall of 2003, is currently in its fourth printing. His most recent book, “Child, Victim, Soldier: The Loss of Innocence in Uganda,” was released on September 30, 2008.
