HELP OUR HURTING CHILDREN AND ADULTS IN UGANDA!
Civil war, bloody carnage, and national disruption caused by former strongman, Idi Amin, have left many hurting and poverty-stricken families in Uganda. Many still cannot care for themselves, or their offspring who now have children. Idi Amin Dada, who became known as the ‘Butcher of Uganda’ for his brutal, despotic rule whilst president of Uganda in the 1970s, is possibly the most notorious of all Africa’s post-independence dictators. Estimates for the number of his opponents who were either killed, tortured, or imprisoned vary from 100,000 to half a million.

Elder Ed Udell, our volunteer Director of Global Missions, meets with one of the village pastors practically every week via Skype for pastoral training, and via Facebook and e-mail almost daily for an update of needs of the adults and children still recovering from war, poverty, and lack of economic assistance. There is a need for fresh water and sanitation which could combat malaria. There is a need for books, supplies, equipment, and sports equipment for the small school, and land and animals to help villagers sustain themselves.

Currently, there are 55 orphans and 5 of their own children that our Ugandan pastor and wife are caring for.  They are needing immediate help for housing, food, clothing, school supplies, school equipment, communication devices, and other needs.  Only $20 will help with the full care of one orphan.  Your church can sponsor one orphan by sending $20 monthly, dedicated to one of these children.  Contact Elder Udell for a name of a child to sponsor, sex of the child, age of child, and a picture of the child.  The caregivers will help the child write a monthly letter to his or her sponsor, letting them know how the funds were used, and how they are doing, with a different picture of the child, or village.  Here are some pictures of the work in progress:
