The Eastern Uganda Baptist Association recently requested financial assistance to relieve Uganda communities from famine. “The situation is alarming, as animals and humans are dying due to the looming hunger,” said Joshua Masaba, president of the Uganda association. Individuals and churches responded by donating to the emergency relief fund of Regular Baptist International, allowing the Eastern Uganda Baptist Association to purchase and distribute food for people in its communities. “God’s mercy is so great!” Masaba said upon receipt of the funds.

“People are flocking [to] my residence day and night in need of food,” Masaba says. “The numbers are overwhelming! I don’t know what the Lord has in store for us. We pray and believe that the Lord who started this good work of providing food especially to disadvantaged people in our community will again touch the hearts of His people to respond and give generously to feed and save more people in the near future”
