Juna Amagara Ministries
Saving Life in Uganda

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

The Mission and Vision of this Ministry

It is our mission to raise up vulnerable children in a loving environment and equip each of them with the tools they need to be confident, competent, Christ-centered leaders. By providing children with safe shelter, quality education, balanced nutrition, health education, faith training and vocational opportunity, we are launching a generation of Godly leaders who will be a force for positive change throughout Africa.  This may seem like a lofty goal but it already becoming reality.  Explore this website.  You will see God’s hand at work.

It's a magical moment when sponsors meet their children for the first time.

As a sponsor, you see their precious photograph hanging on your fridge each day. You pray for them constantly.

Yet you often wonder if what you're doing is making a difference from so far away.

We recently journeyed across the globe to connect with hundreds of children in Uganda. And many of them were able to meet and hug their sponsors for the very first time.

Does it make a difference?

That question was answered through smiles and tears. As these joyful photos make perfectly clear: Sponsors matter! In the moment when sponsor and child first meet, it becomes clear that the impact is eternal.

Child sponsorship is about so much more than providing food and shelter.

To the child, a sponsor is very much like a caring parent. When Judy and Andi met their sponsored children, life-changing relationships were realized... Relationships which reflect the never-ending love of Jesus Christ.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" - Philippians 4:4

We thank you for your continued support of God's children in Uganda!
