Getting Ready for Uganda: Here’s What You Can Do
May 2015 26

This July, a team of 21 will embark on a short term trip to serve in Uganda. This multi-faceted adventure will include mobile medical clinics, soccer camps for kids, teacher training, coffee business development (have you tasted Cup of Compassion coffee yet?), and much more.

The team is busy preparing and gathering supplies that will be needed in order to make the two weeks in the “Pearl of Africa” effective. You can partner with us by helping to collect the iDSC_0766tems listed below. Consider posting this list at your workplace, using social media to let others know about how they can give, or asking your church to include this list in the bulletin.

Uganda is a beautiful country, but is also home to one of the world’s sickest populations. Every donation provided helps open opportunities for our team to serve. Every dollar given unlocks a brighter future for a Ugandan family.
