Missions

Missions are apart of our holistic approaches to reach out to the great need of most of the vulnerable people of Uganda; which category includes orphans and widows in the furthest of the remote areas of the country. Our mission statement emphasizes looking after the widows, the sick, the orphans and the elderly in our hurting communities.  Gulu community is one of those areas in Uganda that has of late, been hit by shortage of water, HIV/AIDS pandemic, rampant school dropouts due to early child pregnancies, poverty, and violence against women. Serious negative effects upon victims of the recent massive killings and destruction by the Lord Resistance Guerilla War Insurgence. To achieve this, Love Uganda Foundation through our Missions program came up with a clear strategy of establishing a Care Project in Gulu district. This is aimed at rehabilitating and restoring hope to those hit by such circumstances and to them that were affected physically and emotionally as a result of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) war.

Missions-Gulu Elderly ProjectWe have made several missions and visits to the People of Gulu and have shared their experience of a tough living accompanied by high poverty levels. We noticed that many girls had to drop out of school due to high poverty levels in the area.

On average, every widow in Gulu looks after 8 to 10 children; with high poverty levels after the deaths of their husbands in the recent LRA rebel war. This remains a burden as they struggle to get the basic necessities of life like; quality water, quality food, quality medical treatment as well as quality housing.

Being that a big part of the region is dry, the few available water sources are far away from the communities where people stay. Therefore children have to travel long distances on foot approximately 600 metres searching for water. These children normally return back home late which poses a great risk to their physical safety. In addition, most of the shelters in the area are grass-thatched; thus prone to catching fires during the scotching heat season. In cases of conflicts, these shelters easily burn; thus leaving many destitute around streets of Gulu district.

More so, HIV/AIDS epidemic is high in the area. It is as a result of rape of the young girls that took place during the LRA bush war. With high illiteracy levels, this vice has spread rapidly in the area. In addition to this, cultural beliefs where  women are allowed to remarry the brothers of their dead husbands; has contributed greatly spread HIV infection.

Basing on the above challenges, Love Uganda Foundation realized that there is a great need to restore the hopes of these people, hence the need to start up Gulu Elderly Project.

117This prompted our missions program to extend our support to them in one way or the other. Recently, we held Gulu Charity Activity Mission; where we reached out to many vulnerable people in the communities of Paichor, Tegot. We had  various empowerment programs and workshops accompanied with donating basic life materials in this very Mission. We reached out to the elderly, war-affected victims, school going children, local leaders, and conducted various workshops that included; Business skills, Improved crop cultivation techniques, Health Education/HIV-AIDS prevention, Godly character with an aim of equipping knowledge and skills on how to eradicate poverty and diseases among the people. We also donated basic materials such as; soap, rice, flour, beans, clothes, shoes, basins, scholastic materials (pens, pencils, books, sets), girl-pads as a way to express our generosity to empowering Vulnerable Gulu communities.

Missions also involve us reaching out to various communities within Kampala capital city.  There are many street children today on the streets of Kampala capital city and many others living in the surburbs and slums within the city. It is our mandate as a team to reachout to them and empower each single one of them that our tomorrow as a nation may rely on such potential transformational leaders.

  • SARA AMBERS- BIRMINGHAM CITY

    My son and I had a good time sharing moments with everyone at the Foundation. I was especially glad to see the much you treasure in having young orphans live a normal life with education, health, shelter and above all, good social life that most orphans tend to lack. The care you give to them is tremendous. Also, I want to appreciate the way you are grooming them with Christianity, teaching them to know God. It is very important. I was surprised that you also contain Muslims under your care ...

    My visit to the orphanage foundation is the best thing I have ever done in my life. The foundation has beautiful and well-behaved children who like to share with everyone. While there, I had a great time to spending 2 weeks with the amazing children who enabled me to experience the best African experience. I remember Frank, an orphan at the foundation who had the greatest smile ever; I enjoyed the African food which was very sweet and fresh fruits from the garden. The trip organized for me by Emma ...

  • SOPHIA- SOUTH AFRICA

    At the time when I contacted you, I had two mindsets. One mindset told me that I would land on con men like I had done before. But on the contrary, I got to prominent guys whose dream is to influence the next generation. I was motivated by all that you do. Taking care of Orphans and Widows is seen as not very important in the eyes of many, you are however, different. I was glad that my first donation helped kids to get clothes. I will always send in ...
