On the ground in Uganda: Families still in crisis

It’s been so good to be back on the ground in Africa … really to travel internationally anywhere and visit our partners after a year and a half of travel restrictions.

It hasn’t been easy. We’ve had to jump through hoops and go through countless rounds of coronavirus testing, not only for our own health and safety but for the health and safety of those we serve as well. But it’s been so worth it to see the faces of these precious children again and to see firsthand how your generosity is helping people in need.

Many families are still overwhelmed by this pandemic. There are few jobs and little food available, which is why your gifts are so important.

Even though I knew developing countries are still in the heart of the battle against the coronavirus, I wasn’t quite prepared for what I’ve seen. Parents are out of work and barely making ends meet. Children are starving.

And it looks like the situation may be about to get worse.

Right after we arrived in Uganda, the government announced that the country would soon be going under another complete lockdown with schools and many businesses closing again.

That means fewer jobs … fewer opportunities to get food … and more hunger.

This crisis is far from over for families in Africa and in many other places around the world. They desperately need your help. And for just $14, you can help meet one person’s most urgent needs and bring hope.

Your gift will help provide lifesaving essentials like food for children here in Uganda, oxygen machines for people sick with the virus in India, clean water and hygiene kits for families in Guatemala, and so much more. You’ll also help share the love of Christ.

I hope you’ll give a gift today to help someone struggling to survive.

And please be sure to pray for the people of Uganda as they enter this new lockdown and another critical phase of this crisis.
