Uganda

Rebel forces in Uganda have turned the nation against itself as they seek to establish a theocracy based on a perverse interpretation of the Bible and the 10 commandments. Over 30,000 children have been abducted by Joseph Kony’s “Lord’s Resistance Army” and used as its soldiers to cleanse Uganda of the Alcholi people. These children are often forced to cut off family members’ body parts or even kill them, thus eliminating the possibility of going home if that child escapes. If an escape attempt is successful, the child will most likely join the 1.5 million people displaced by the conflict in disease-ridden refugee camps having little or no food. As many as 1,500 have died in a single week in these camps.


Bridge of Hope partners and friends, moved by the country’s plight, took initiative to sponsor a clinic, providing its medical supplies and staff. Another community in Africa was therefore equipped to treat diseases such as Malaria; a disease which would have otherwise been a death sentence. The medical team in Uganda watched a desperate father struggle down the path to the BOH-sponsored clinic. He had walked for miles. In his arms: his precious, lifeless child. Because the clinic was there, the boy was tested and treated for the disease with medical supplies provided by BOH and his life was spared.
