Humanitarian Outreach

We work with communities that are in desperate need for basic care around housing, medical, food and financial constraints among other needs. With your Help we will continue to work with communities in delivering basic care to those that can not help themselves. 

POVERTY AND HEALTH

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) monitors the development status of countries by using the Human Development Index (HDI). This index measures the average achievements in country based on three basic dimensions of human development:


Africa and in particular Sub-Saharan Africa, (countries south of the Sahara Desert) often performs at
the bottom of this list. The UNDP annual report highlights some key indicators of poverty. The
situation in Africa consistently stands in stark contrast to the rest of the world. While most of the
world has experienced a decrease in the number of people living below $1 per day, the number of
people living on less than $1 per day increased in Sub-Saharan Africa by 100 million in 2001, when
compared to 1990.

 

The situation is alarming when some of the indicators for poverty are examined. According to the UNDP, the following characterise poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa’s share of $1 per day poverty will rise from 24 per cent today to 41 per cent in 2015 if the current pattern of growth and distribution continues. Sub-Saharan Africa needs an annual growth rate of income per capita of five per cent for 10 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) target of halving poverty. The actual growth rate since 2000 has been 1.6 per cent.

335 reached, Kirume VIllage

Your support secured food for 335 people during the height of a total shutdown in Uganda. These numbers superseded our expectations and our hearts are overjoyed. As our team moved from house to house delivering food hampers, they also discovered people who were critically ill and were not able to go to the hospital due to financial constraints. As a result, we had to field a doctor who did home visitations. She found that some of them were not able to walk due to body weakness and fatigue mainly caused by hunger. Additionally, many more were treated for malaria and typhoid, while others discovered that they had more severe illnesses such as H.I.V. and needed further medical surveillance. The field doctor was able to offer them post-diagnosis counseling, dietary changes, and further referred to local clinics for further medical attention.
