During the Pandemic Streams of Mercy are still being allowed to operate in the community.  They have been using an integrated approach offering various clinics dealing with family hygiene, nutrition, domestic violence  and the Gospel  as well as visual problems, which are very common and often go untreated.  People were given an eye test The optician can then find the right spectacles for the person from the many that were donated.                                      ...

We  have collected a lot of very  useful and needed items for Uganda but need help with funding the purchase  and shipping of the container. We also need help at this time with school fees for a number of children, in Uganda, DR Congo and Zambia. Pastor Israel in DR Congo has severed connection with his church to concentrate on Streams of Mercy ministry, which now includes churches as well as prisons and village ministry.  They do need more support now.  They would like some funding to help set up a poultry project which would give them a steady source of income. Pastor Samuel in Zambia  is now  an ordained minister and leads a church which meets  in a large tent on land which Str...

Retired Colonel and Mrs William Rwolekya   have started an agricultural project growing greens and also fruit trees. These are irrigated by hand daily using different teams of women each day. The water is drawn from a well on the colonel’s land.  An irrigation system using a solar pump and preferably fitted to a well in the actual field would be a great help. This is a very good project which has also experimented with organic and inorganic fertilizers and proved that the results from organic fertilizing far exceed those from the inorganic fertilizers. The Colonel also started to teach carpentry and animal husbandry. A lot of problems with vision were reported. Some of these may simp...

Health facilities are difficult to access, being about 7km away with no transport. This results in childhood deaths and maternal and baby deaths when women develop problems during labour – simply because they cannot reach the facilities in time.

Secondary schools in particular are some distance away which, together with many family’s having problems with school fees results in young people receiving an inadequate education. There is no work for sc...

We had been invited by the Salvation Army to do a mission in Western Uganda and we spent 2 weeks of a four-week mission with them , the final  2 weeks were with Pastor Jimmy, our Streams of Mercy director in the Busia area.  We visited eight communities where there was some Salvation Army work. In each one we met with members of the community including representatives of other churches. We were able to give some encouraging ministry and then discussed the various needs and problems that the people were experiencing.      The first of these was the Bududa Resettlement centre – Kiryandongo These people seem to be suffering the greatest hardship of all the communities we visited. They h...

THE CONTAINER On 10th November we loaded a 40 foot container of aid for Uganda. There were medical supplies and equipment, tools and machines for vocational training, educational books and equipment, Bibles, Clothing, Office furniture, Kitchen ware and bicycles. It is due to arrive in Mombasa on Dec 28th.  We still need to pay for transportation to our centre in Uganda ($2568)  and the customs tax is still being negotiated but maybe several thousand dollars.  We are praying that this tax may be greatly reduced. Any help towards these costs  would be welcomed. There is a donation  facility on this site to help with this. PASTOR ISRAEL in DR Congo  has undertaken a 10 day mission to ch...
