Cancer Patients at the Cancer Institute at Mulago
Joseph and Cathy, WeRemnant coordinators in Uganda, purchase bathing soap, gloves, sugar, maize flour, beans, water, toothpaste and other basic items for cancer patients sleeping on the floors of the cancer ward and public streets outside the Uganda Cancer Institute at Mulago Hospital in Kampala.
Why are cancer patients sleeping on the floors of Mulago Hospital?
Mulago is a large reference hospital whose patients come from many different parts of the country. Cathy noticed a shocking reality for some of the patients seeking help at the cancer ward. The standard of care is such that once patients are diagnosed with cancer and have received their initial treatments, they must wait two weeks for the next treatment. However, many of the patients come from far away villages and towns. They are too poor to return home. So they sleep on the hospital floors and in the streets, waiting for their next treatment. No food, no showers, no family, no support. Without Cathy, many would simply go hungry and recover alone.
JESUS does not forget the forgotten and the suffering. HE always sends HIS Remnant.
Feeding Street Children
“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27 (NKJV)
In the small Mukuba fishing village of Uganda, children are abandoned and left to fend for themselves on the streets. Cathy, our local WeRemnant coordinator, gathers these orphans and abandoned children to express the love of JESUS CHRIST to them in a way they can understand: she cooks meals for them.
Without this expression of love, many would not have hot meals, a change of clothes or even shoes.
Thanks to the generosity of the WeRemnant family, Cathy is able to purchase the supplies needed to continue to express the love of JESUS CHRIST to these precious children.
Inga Ministries and WeRemnant Partnership
WeRemnant has partnered with Inga Ministries to support the Christian school in Kyalanga. This newly built Christian school is the only one for many miles and serves over 200 students. The school was located on a different piece of land, owned by someone of another faith. But the school was forced to move. Therefore, Inga Ministries purchased land and built a temporary structure.
Thank you, WeRemnant family, for providing much-needed support to register the school and buy their first set of books for the students.
Inga Ministries and the WeRemnant family have sent a missionary to Uganda. Our missionary must brave the dangerous lifestyle of preaching the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST in a predominantly Muslim area and travel difficult, unpaved roads. This means facing attacks, walking many miles, carrying heavy loads, and going days without food. Our missionary desperately needs a motor bike to carry him around to the areas where doors for the Gospel have been opened.
As a WeRemnant family member, would you consider supporting our missionary in Uganda?
