3 Quick Tips to Keep Pace with Global Partners During a Pandemic

2. Repurpose your people

What if you kept the proposed team intact and rallied them to redirect their time and effort to serve the same ministry in other ways? Could you involve more people who wanted to participate but were not able to make the trip?

3. Repurpose your resources

What if you still raised the funds you were planning to raise and invested them in the ministry site you were planning to serve? What would it look like in this pandemic year to spend more of your budget on much needed food, water, or medical services in these disadvantaged countries?

    Uganda

  • 10 yrs. old

    01-01-2012

Entered the Program: May 2021

Abdul (who goes by the name Kasozi) was born with a disability in his legs which prevented him from being able to walk. Physical deformities are stigmatized in Kasozi’s culture and consequently his mother abandoned him at birth. 

Kasozi is now living at an orphanage that cares for children with special needs and is doing well. He is receiving physiotherapy regularly and is getting stronger. He is able to use orthopedic shoes and a walker but the process is a gradual one and he will continue to require long-term care.
