About Amy For Africa

The Amy For Africa mission was started in May 2013 by marathon runner Amy Compston and journalist Mark Maynard. It is a fundraising arm for UCE and a tool to share God's love.

What is UCE?

United Christian Expeditions (UCE), is a non-profit organization based in Ashland, Ky., that provides aid to areas in Africa including Uganda, Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo.

How you can help?

AFA is asking anyone who sees this to pray about what God may want them to give to aid children in Africa. You can feed and educate a child for a year with a donation of only $45.

AFA's outreach

Part of Amy For Africa's mission is to provide featured news, AFA team marathon results and personal profile, and other related topics and events surrounding the mission.
