Our temporary Feeding Center in Lira, Uganda

Uganda

 In Uganda is a town called Lira, known years ago for being the jewel of the Northern part of Uganda.  It was known for its Savannah like tree-lined streets and for being a friendly bicycle town.  Lira was destroyed by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s resistance army for almost 20 years, abducting children to be child soldiers, burning villages and robbing the area of all its cattle destroying their livelihood.  Lira became overcrowded with refugees returning for safety, but many still are without medical care, food and water.  Many orphaned children, refugees and displaced children and their families have been thrown back into their original homeland with nothing.  Many children have been dying as a result.  We have saved over 400 children from dying.  We help feed over 375 children orphans living in their own community and we also help with their medical clinic that help the children at the facility as well as children struggling in the outer villages.

We build water boreholes throughout Uganda, and we recently upgraded the Malnutrition Unit in Kampala for their childrens wards.  Everything was redone and medical machines were added as well.  We have done many Agricultural projects to help families provide sustainable income.  We have provided bibles to children so they can learn God’s word and bibles to adults completing their discipleship program.  We have a special heart for Uganda and see God doing amazing transformations in the people of Uganda.
