Dear friends,

Thank you to many of you who have responded to our last email plea. We had people really sacrifice on behalf of the people we serve.  More than $900/mo of the $1500/mo we needed has already been provided! We were able to send these additional funds to our clinic in northern Uganda and therefore we are nearly able to handle all of the waves of refugees from South Sudan. Thank you!

Here are some updated statistics from our clinic in Arua:

  • Daily we are treating up to 160 patients with just a staff of 9 medical personnel.
  • Weekly we are saving the lives of at least 15 children who have severe Malaria with just hours to live.
  • Weekly we are delivering nearly 10 babies.

I know that GRI has had a presence in Uganda for 10 years now, but please do not underestimate the needs the people of Northern Uganda and South Sudan face. Our mission at GRI is to reach the most neglected and unreachable and these people are at the heart of our mission, as they are forgotten.

We really need your help to raise the remaining $600/mo required to meet all of the additional demands of so many refugees.  We are already moving forward with increasing our efforts, in the hope that all of you will join us in serving so many people in need.

Thank you for all you do for us, and your unbelievable support to us in difficult situations!

 

God Bless You,

Jaden
