This month’s cause in the Global Impact tour has a special place in my heart because I have actually been to Gulu in Uganda. The photo above is from when I visited in 2007.
It’s amazing, the resilience of these people. The organization for which I work is involved in helping people resettle and rebuild their livelihoods after spending decades in the IDP camps.
The official cause through the 58: Global Impact tour is a different organization though, one that is focusing its efforts on justice for those who are returning. They are looking for funding so that they can open a Gulu office.
International Justice Mission Gulu will provide immediate and sustained attention so that the system works to protect everyone. IJM investigators, attorneys and aftercare staff will be able to defend families particularly widows and orphans – who need help now. Over the last decade, IJM has restored hundreds of widows and orphans to their homes in rural areas around Kampala. This is no small matter: For the poorest and most vulnerable, access to shelter and somewhere to grow food is a matter of life and death. We are ready to bring this expertise to Gulu. Together, we can bring hope and restoration to Northern Uganda. Will you please help support us?
