Help Refugees in Uganda

    Donate to Help Refugees in Uganda 

    Our missionary in Arua, Uganda, Carolyn Goodwin, has been serving South Sudanese refugees who have lost homes, jobs, family, friends and country. 

    Her ministry includes:

    • Providing trauma workshops with a biblical foundation, each one attended by 75-150 people 
    • Sunday school classes reaching over 300 children each month in the Rhino and Arua refugee camps 
    • Women's and Children's Prison Ministries that include weekly Bible studies, helping supply food to the women's prison, providing legal help to women who were unjustly imprisoned and more 

    Carolyn also works to provide some of the vital items not provided in the camps. One of the items that each person in the camps needs is a sturdy and warm blanket. Some don't have a blanket at all or share with 2-3 people. Carolyn has already begun providing blankets, pictured at right are a few of the people who recently received them. But each time she distributes blankets there are more people who need them than blankets to give. There are at least 100 people still in need of blankets!
