Orphanages in Uganda

Orphanages in Uganda

Description

Uganda is one of the poorest nations in the world, with 37.7 percent of the population living on less than $1.25 a day. Despite making enormous progress in reducing the countrywide poverty incidence from 56 percent of the population in 1992 to 31 per cent in 2005, poverty remains deep-rooted in the country’s rural areas, which are home to more than 85 percent of Ugandans. After a military coup in 1971, the president was deposed from power and the dictator Idi Amin seized control of the country. Amin ruled Uganda with the military for the next eight years and was responsible for mass killings within the country to maintain his rule. It is estimated that over 300,000 Ugandans lost their lives at the hands of his regime. Basically Amin left the country’s economy in ruins. The rule of Idi Amin and the effects of the HIV virus left thousands of children orphaned with nowhere to live or with no one to provide for them. Several of our Open Bible churches started orphanages to provide for these displaced children and not only feed and clothe them but also to teach them the Word of God and provide a good education for them. You can partner with us in supporting these orphanages, which are literally saving children who would be living on the street and providing them with proper shelter and food.
