Love Africa: Uganda Women Concern Ministry (UWCM)
blog.loveafrica.org.uk, 13 Mar 2010 [cached]
The Uganda Women Concern Ministry (UWCM) was founded in 1991 by Edith Wakumire, who had herself been orphaned as a child.
...
The work and achievements of the UWCM within these communities have received global recognition and Kofi Annan presented Edith with the United Nations Development Programme award for her work on the eradication of poverty in 1998.
...
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.

In 1991 Edith Wakumire, the executive director of Uganda Women Concern Ministry (UWCM), left the relative security of a salaried position in a teacher training college to help build the capacity of her local community to prevent and alleviate the suffering caused by HIV/AIDS.Through the parish churches Edith and her colleagues formed community mobilization teams to assess needs, identify counselors, support people living with AIDS, and assist orphans, widows, the elderly and vulnerable children.Since 1991 over 1500 families affected and infected with HIV/AIDS have been empowered through counseling, education, home-based care and income generating activities.
Initially Edith financed the work out of her own resources, but as it expanded she was able to receive funding from the Ugandan Ministry of Health and other sources.UWCM has received awards of recognition from the United Nations, and from World Vision International.
Edith Wakumire came to British Columbia in 1994 and during that time established links with two congregations in the Diocese of BC who have been helping her with her work: St. Mary's Church, Metchosin, and St. George's Cadboro Bay.
