This trip offers the opportunity to serve in partnership with the staff of International Needs Uganda (IN Uganda). We will come alongside our CHAP Uganda partners, as they continue to undertake a number of activities and programs, addressing the physical and spiritual well-being of individuals, families and small communities that deal with HIV/AIDS, malaria, malnutrition and a variety of other challenges. Opportunities to serve include assisting with health clinics, home visitations, church services, classroom visits – both elementary and senior high as well as interacting with various community leaders. Please note that this is NOT a medical team, so medical expertise is not a requirement, but of course those with a medical background are welcome to be part of the team and your experience will be a benefit during the medical clinics. Your presence on this team will strengthen the long-term relationship our church has with IN Uganda and the community of Buikwe and you will be a gift to those you meet.
