World Gospel Mission seeking funds for Uganda famine

Marion, Ind.-based World Gospel Mission is seeking additional funds to stem growing concerns about famine in the African nation of Uganda. Inconsistent rainfall has impacted crop production, with food shortages and prices alike on the rise. WGM missionaries estimate about 10 percent of the population – three million people – are facing severe food shortages. “One of our Ugandan brothers called us, saying his neighbors were starving and that he desperately wanted to help them,” said Tim Rickel, WGM Vice President of Development. “As the body of Christ, how can we not respond?” WGM has sent $10,000 for food and water distribution to Uganda.
