Jesus Fed Me has promoted the welfare of human beings in many different communities of Uganda, and we have connected with people and worked on their sustainable development. We have provided hope under challenging times to various sections of communities that are craving help.
Elders are the neediest and most helpless people in Africa, particularly in Uganda. So JFM foresaw how people their age should be addressed regarding food, health services, and others, and our goal was to help them—giving them a hand up, giving them moral support, showing them heartfelt humility and respect, and making them aware that someone really does care about them and trying to improve their condition.
Our focus was to improve their nutrition and end hunger so JFM prioritized their health for low-income families who cannot afford a single meal a day. We even gave out mattresses and blankets. Understanding the needs of poor people helps them overcome life’s adversities. JFM helps the poor by understanding their wants, desires, and thoughts without diminishing their dignity and helping them achieve those wants in a respectable manner. Treating them respectfully and understanding has made a huge difference in their lives.
The best gift you can a child is an education and an opportunity to know God. JFM mastered this principle and we are sponsoring children in schools this will help them with the knowledge to stand on their feet. Giving free education to children has given them hope and smiles since education is the beginning of getting out of life’s hardships. This will help them grow as individuals, get jobs, be employed, and build careers. JFM believes through education, poor children can develop their skills so they can take over efforts to revitalize their life rather than always depending on outsiders to do so for them.
Generally, our goal is all to know Christ, through love the good news has reached everyone JFM has encountered. It will be useless if we give free food and education and don’t tell people the most essential thing, salvation. As our greatest commission, JFM has always prioritized Jesus in all.
