...

Edith is clearly a woman of faithful ambition and vision. Her compassion and understanding of the requirement to meet both Edith Wakumire physical and spiritual needs, has brought her alongside the suffering of the most vulnerable and marginalized. She has challenged and inspired volunteers from churches (sometimes referred to as "angels") to physically search out and care for those most in need.
Our hope is that St James will have the privilege to continue to support the work of the UWCM as well as inviting Edith to come to the UK to teach us to do the same.
