Sister Rosemary has dedicated her life to rescuing children and mothers in Northern Uganda who have been devastated by war. During a 20-year period of vicious armed conflict in northern Uganda, woman and children were captured by rebels and forced to become soldiers and sex slaves. As they escaped, they tried to return back to their home communities, but the communities rejected them, saying, “You are the wives of murderers and your children are the children of murderers.”
Sister Rosemary has provided these women and children with shelter and a community. She shows them unconditional love and gives them with hope and and a home. We are honored to help Sister Rosemary achieve her vision to heal this war-torn community. Thanks to the generous support of donors, we have helped build five orphan homes for Sister Rosemary in Atiak, Uganda, and we plan to build more in the future. In addition, we plan to build a school and medical clinic in Atiak.
