The Uhuru Amphitheatre | Ancients understood the power of hosting public events. In 2018 I had the pleasure of experiencing an emerging vision for culture + community in Nakivale Refugee Settlement where this architectural feat stands proud on the southwestern landscape of Uganda bringing displaced people together over shared engagement in sports, arts, music + spoken word. .
Goodmorning🇹🇿🇬🇧🌏 #Cupoftea☕️ Ammon,Moab,and Mount Seir Defeated 1 It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat. 2 Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, “A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria; and they are in Hazazon Tamar” (which is En Gedi). 3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. 4 So Judah gathered together to ask help from the LORD; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. 5 Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court, 6 and said: “O LORD God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? 7 Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? 8 And they dwell in it, and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name, saying, 9 ‘If disaster comes upon us—sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine—we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.’ 10 And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them— 11 here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. 12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” 13 Now all Judah.. #2Chronicles20:1-37 #PraisetheLord#wordoftheday#wordofGod#quotesoftheday#verseoftheday#faith#biblestudy#BwanaYesuasifiwe#anzanamiBwana#Nenolaleo#NenolaMungu#imani#biblia#barikiwa#beblessed#eastafrica#Tanzania#Kenya#Uganda#Rwanda#Congo#swahili#UK#lifestyleblogger#vlogger#mswahili🇹🇿 #Rachelsiwa🙏❤️😊☕
Hope for mountain #gorillas. A new survey indicates a 25% increase in the #mountain gorilla population since 2010 in a 2,000-kilometer area of forested terrain. Tracking teams identified 604 gorillas living in 41 social groups in the border areas of #Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the #Congo and #Uganda. A 2012 census recorded over 400 gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi impenetrable #NationalPark. The two populations, together exceeding 1,000 mountain gorillas, are a result of programs and increased efforts to preserve the majestic beings. We would like to convey our sincere admiration and respect for all those involved in preserving the lives and habitat of mountain gorillas. May these loving co-inhabitants grace our #planet for eons to come. Supreme Master Ching Hai is contributing US$20,000 to further help this laudable good cause, with all love and gratitude to all involved." God bless you."

This single gas fridge stores all of the vaccines for this region of Uganda. No matter what studies or estimates you cite, large portions of the vaccines in it are already ineffective because they fell outside the 2-8°C range somewhere along the supply chain. Because of this, many of the kids and adults vaccinated with them will still get infected.
HE AIN’T HEAVY, HE’S MY BROTHER
The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

This is Isa Agnes, 7 years old, and her younger sister Lina, 5 months. They come from a village far outside Kampala. They have no family. Here in Kayda (homeless children project) I see Isa Agnes always carrying her little sister and taking care of her. Isa Agnes is my young hero of the present and future I admire her strength and unconditional love and commitment to her little sister. I came here to Kayda with the intention to commit myself to these children and loving them unconditionally . But certainly they are the ones to show me what real commitment and unconditional love is, and how to bravely embrace each moment wholeheartedly.

Imagine learning you were having triplets. How would you feel? Elated? Shocked? Worried? Living in poverty in Uganda, Annet experienced all these emotions. She also had only minutes to prepare. Unable to afford a pregnancy scan, she learned about the triplets the day she delivered them.
Her husband abandoned them after hearing the news. He believes triplets are a curse. Annet was left alone and desperate. Compassion’s local church partner stepped in to provide food, clothing and medical treatment.
Even with this support, the single mum struggles to pay the rent on a tiny, two-room home. When her rent is overdue, she fears the landlord will evict them from the home. But you can help. Your gift will help build Annet and her family a home on land her parents own. Even $20 will make a difference.
It will give the triplets and their older sister safety and dignity: something every child deserves. Living without the burden of ongoing rent means Annet can better provide for her family’s needs and her children’s futures.
“I hope that Patience, Samuel and Grace get to have an education — something I never did,” says Annet. “If we were to get a new home for my children then we will be free. I will no longer be worried about rent and getting chased away if we can’t pay.”
You can donate via the link in our bio. Thank you so much!
