Since 1980, the HIV/AIDS pandemic has killed more than one million parents in Uganda, leaving more than 1.5 million children vulnerable to the ravages of poverty and disease. Nearly half of those children have been taken in by extended family or kind-hearted people. But the rest, nearly 800,000 of them, have been left on their own. In a country with no substantial welfare system this means that every day is a dangerous struggle for survival for children of all ages. These are the children who come to Juna Amagara. For the hopeless, there is hope through faith. For the hungry, there is good food. For the lonely there is loving family. And, in time, those young, suffering kids become powerful, productive adults. That is the miracle of Juna Amagara Ministries
