Joseph (our country director for HopeChest Uganda)'s just said: "After church, I went to Adacar to take food but I almost got killed there while trying to defend the orphans food that I had taken there. I found a huge mob complaining that everybody is hungry but why are we giving only orphans food? just returned from there at 9.20 pm." Please pray for the hunger crisis facing the Katakwi district of Uganda.
3:05 pm more info - Bob Mudd, our COO, just got off the phone with Joseph. He's fine, just a bit shaken up, his shirt is torn and he has some bumps and bruises. He had the food in the back of a pick up truck. Several people from the community saw this and rounded up their friends. These people are VERY desperate and many of them are already starving to death. They surrounded Joseph and the truck yelling at him because they were angry that they were not getting food too. Things got completely out of hand and they attacked him. The widows rushed to Joseph's side and broke up the mob, saving him from being severely hurt or killed. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. We're committed to working in this area and helping the orphans, widows and people of Adacar.
