Love Africa: Uganda Women Concern Ministry (UWCM)

blog.loveafrica.org.uk [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.
