Uganda is home to 27 million people. The country was prosperous at independence in 1962, but was brutalised under the chaotic regimes of Milton Obote and Idi Amin. In that period, up to 800,000 Ugandans were murdered. With over 1.5 million people living with HIV, the prevalence of HIV in Uganda is a major concern. This is a primary cause for the fact that today, there are more than 2.5 million orphans in Uganda. Our ministry partners in Uganda are focused specifically on helping young girls with unplanned pregnancies (often due to abuse) as well as orphans and vulnerable children.
