ASHLAND, Ky. – Amy For Africa’s mission effort is having a five-day campaign fundraiser called “Medicine for Moyo” to help the small village in Northern Uganda battle a cholera outbreak.

United Christian Expedition (UCE) are the only responders so far. UCE has three Penne Paris Nursery Schools in the affected area. Already three have died from the sickness and many more are sick.

Some of the areas affected by cholera is where Amy Compston, a co-founder of the AFA mission, visited recently.

“We need to reach out and help this dear people if we can,” she said. “We have so much to be thankful for here in the United States. Please show these people of Moyo compassion.”

UCE will try to supply much-needed IV fluids and medicine to the three health centers and the Moyo Hospital in addition to holding training on the prevention of cholera in the affected areas.

AFA is trying to raise $800 for the medicine. The organization has no overhead or organizational fees so every penny given goes to the cause.

Go to our donation page today and help if you can or go to ucemission.com and donate.

Anyone who donates at least $20 will receive a free copy of “Grace Runner.” Please include the word book and an address in the message area when donating.
