The Family International Uganda

Kigo Women's Prison
We have been supporting the efforts of one of our long-term Ugandan colleagues by soliciting donations and counseling for the women in Kigo Prison.
HIV Positive Widows and Orphans
Over the years we have donated substantial quantities of income-generating goods to the Akutwala Ekiro Women's group, which cares for over 400 widows and orphans in Mbuya.
L'Arche Uganda
L'Arche Uganda cares for a number of physically and mentally challenged young people. They do an excellent job and we've assisted them on a weekly basis for several years with donations, food, income-generating materials, and programs for the young people.
Katwe Orphans and Kakoni (Mpigi) Village Center
We were able to donate income-generating items to Pastor Livingstone who has 70 orphans in Katwe, which enabled him to raise school fees for many of his school-aged children.
Little Angels Orphanage
Volunteers from the Family International painted the Little Angels Orphanage in Rubaga, brought donations of needed items, and a set of the STEPS programme sponsored by a Danish volunteer.
Gulu Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Refugee Camps
A local pastor, Charles Ochieng, helps us with the distribution of relief at the Cwero and Kora Bili IDP camps in Gulu, and also in Laroo, where he has a number of orphans he and his colleagues care for. Apart from raincoats, boots, warm jackets, bedding, school books, etc.
Katakwi Flood Relief
When the floods struck in the northeast region of our country in 2007, hundreds of thousands of people were stranded without access to food, roads, or hope. We were contacted by a local charity organization that had previously helped fund our relief efforts to the needy.
Karimojong Widows
We took a 10-ton truck to Nakapiripirit-Namalu in Karamoja, where a friend ran a camp for some very needy widows and children.
Orphans from Lira and Katakwi
A local pastor, Peter Obua, was formerly a soldier when he found out he was HIV positive. He then had an amazing experience with Jesus, which changed his life.
