This is a video of Ugandan dancing as our welcome to the community where we were working. In the summer of 2008, myself and 11 others from the church community travelled to Uganda to do some missionary work. While there we built a classroom for the local school of Kyoga C/U and also ran a kids club to educate the pupils there about God in their lives. Plus, we also taught English to the adults and teachers. We spent two weeks there and most of us were completely blown away by it all. This is the welcome we got when we arrived! I love the place – the people are so loving and accepting of anyone there and we were actually given gifts on the last day there! They, who can afford next to nothing were giving us gifts…

Lou Engle, an American preacher, is hosting a revival-type meeting named The Call in Uganda to address the perils of homosexuality. This meeting is highly irresponsible because a similar meeting last year resulted in a national fury of outings, riots, a death, and the introduction of the notorious Anti-Homosexuality Bill that allows for the execution of HIV positive and repeat homosexual offenders. It also criminalizes LGBT advocacy, and people must report gay people within 24 hours to authorities. It also allows for the extradition of gay Ugandans from other countries. So if you’re gay, there’s no escape even if you go to a different country.

Six areas in the three districts of Bushenyi, Luwero and Ntungamo were recipients of these nets in a combined 4500 net distribution. All are high-risk malaria areas with endemic malaria and seasonal epidemic outbreaks. Kyamuhunga and Kikwamba were the targeted areas in Bushenyi. Pregnant women, under 5′s and people living with HIV/Aids (PLWHA) were the recipients. These are the groups most vulnerable to malaria attack. The nets were distributed by Uganda Red Cross community volunteers alongside ongoing URCS malaria control and HIV/home based care activities. Malaria education and net use training were an integral part of the distribution. There was a bednet demonstration and malaria information session covering what the nets are, why they are needed and how to use them. Net usage follow-up will aim to ensure complete and correct net use.

For three years, Jesca has reached out to HIV positive women and men in Uganda. She has encouraged them to go for testing and accompanied them to access treatment in the neighboring districts of Jinja or Tororo using her own resources. She has provided outstanding support to HIV positive mothers by educating them on the benefits of PMTCT and accompanying them to hospitals to ensure they get timely treatment to prevent their unborn babies from infection. She also extends support to spouses of these women to ensure they too get tested, treated, and provide support to their partners. Since 2008, Jesca has led a team of 16 women in eight sub-counties of Namayingo district to train local women as paralegals so they can support women and families affected by AIDS to access justice. Namayingo district lacks legal aid services. This exposes women affected by AIDS- especially widows- to gender-based violence and property loss to ruthless in-laws. Through her efforts, Jesca has garnered the support of key law enforcement actors including the police’s Family Protection Unit, probation and welfare offices, local council leaders and religious leaders to campaign for access to justice for women and families affected by AIDS. Jesca and her team have gained the respect in the community for recovering lost family property like land, live stock and household valuables.
KPFA Radio News interviewed me on Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2009, aka, “Hang the Gays” bill, as similar legislation was introduced in neighboring Rwanda. The Rwanda News Agency reported, on 12.11.2009, that: “Legislation is pending in Rwanda, as well as neighbors Burundi and Uganda, that would carry long prison sentences for anyone ‘who practices, encourages or sensitizes people of the same sex, to sexual relation or any sexual practice.’” Rwanda’s law, like Uganda’s, includes prison terms for those who fail to report knowledge of homosexual behaviour, including any expression of interest in the opposite sex, realized or not. Consideration of Rwanda’s legislation seems to have since been postponed, but Uganda’s is still very much on the table, and, in the international spotlight.
