Christian Fellowship Ministries
Sharing God’s love with vulnerable people being impacted by poverty, HIV/AIDS and food insecurity.
Christian Fellowship Ministries (CFM) is a holistic evangelical ministry that shares Jesus’ love with vulnerable people in remote communities in Eastern Uganda that have being devastated by poverty, HIV/AIDS and food insecurity.
They do this by providing education, healthcare and family support for orphans and vulnerable children; improving food security through community-led agricultural projects; and sharing the hope of the gospel through outreach events, church planting and individual evangelism.
Restore hope through education, food security and the gospel.
CFM’s child sponsorship program provides education, medical care and spiritual, social and emotional support to over 300 orphans and vulnerable children.
This gives children an opportunity to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty, to feel loved and have a hope for a brighter future
Families in these rural communities often survive on 1 meal or less per day.
These families are mostly subsistence farmers who live in areas where other jobs are not available.
CFM’s Mafudu agricultural project aims to empower 240 vulnerable families to improve their yields and food security through improved farming practices and access to better quality seeds, helping them to feed their families and earn an income.
CFM’s outreach program aims to spread the gospel to rural communities that have no churches and few opportunities for hearing the word of God.
By putting on community outreach events, planting churches, training pastors and through one-on-one ministry, CFM shares Jesus’ love, a chance for salvation and the hope of the gospel.
Uganda is home to over 44 million people, and while the country has made significant progress in reducing poverty over recent years, there are millions who still struggle to break free from the cycle of poverty.
Most of these live in remote rural communities (like those where our partners serve) that lack the opportunities enjoyed by more developed and connected parts of the country.
In addition to the ‘usual’ challenges of poverty, the prevalence of HIV in Uganda (with over 1.5 million people infected) has had a devastating effect on the community, leaving more than 2.5 million children orphaned and forced to fend for themselves.
