Grace Orphanage in Seeta, Uganda, is an oasis of hope for children who have known nothing but war, disease, and abuse. The atrocities toward children of this region are almost beyond comprehension. Thousands of children were abducted and recruited for the Lord’s Resistance Army; others face extreme poverty, malaria, and AIDS. It is estimated that Uganda has 3.5 million children orphaned from AIDS alone.
With only a 2,000-square-feet home, a Church of God pastor opened Grace as a place of compassion and care. The orphanage now accommodates 66 children. Those under Grace Orphanage’s care vary in age; some are in Primary schools, secondary school, and others attend Tertiary institutes and universities.
Recently, property was obtained to expand Grace and build a permanent orphanage home, a children’s clinic, and a school. They hope to also implement teaching vocational skills for those that may not be able to continue with a formal education. Funds are desperately needed for this expansion to happen. Help give future to the children of Seeta.
