WOMF has been actively working in South Sudan for over 2 decades. Unfortunately, the newest country in the world has experienced incredible heartbreak and tragedy throughout the years. With political turmoil, rebel activity, poverty, and a serious refugee crisis; South Sudan is in full-blown humanitarian emergency.
Currently all of our South Sudanese staff and their families reside in Northern Uganda in refugee camps. At the moment, rough estimates claim the refugee numbers are close to almost half a million residents. Even in a hopeless situation, our staff (along with generous partners) started a church and a school in the Bidi Bidi camp. Continue to join us in prayer as we wait patiently for peace to return to South Sudan so our families and thousands elsewhere can safely return home.
The Pearl of Africa, Uganda, has been the birthplace of WOMF and is our foundation ministry. With moderate stability, Uganda has come a long way since the days of Idi Amin. Uganda Christian Outreach Ministries (UCOM) is the home to over 280 churches, 20+ schools, a Bible College, a Prison Ministry, and so much more.
Led by our National Director, Robert Kasozi, UCOM is training and equipping world changers all over Africa. We have plenty of ways for you to serve the people of Uganda. In fact, we have teams visiting almost every week of the year. Come and visit and serve alongside our staff. Help those in need live life to the fullest!

Ever since the genocide in 1994, the country of Rwanda has had a wonderful period of peace and stability. Landlocked and small, Rwanda is known for its beautiful hills, mountains, and lush green landscapes. With a population of around 12 million, many Rwandese families face a daily struggle for food, shelter, healthcare and education.
Our National Director of Rwanda Christian Outreach Ministries (RCOM), Pastor Gacura, has established a number of churches that are focused on caring for the community. A graduate from our Yesu Akwagala Bible College, Gacura has also helped RCOM focus on the physically disabled communities in Rwanda as well. We are thankful for what God is doing in the nation of Rwanda.
