Kerith Ministries (Uganda)
Kerith Ministries was established in Pallisa, Uganda, in 2009 by Pastor Samuel Mwesigwa and his wife Mercy. Approximately 10-13% of the total population of children living in the rural Pallisa District area are considered to be “vulnerable children”1. Kerith Ministries was created with a mission to serve and protect these vulnerable children and to share the love of Christ within the Pallisa community. The ministry strives to carry out this mission by focusing on activities that involve fostering and protecting orphans, delivering quality health care services to vulnerable families, creating education opportunities for orphans and other disadvantaged children, providing food and shelter for the needy, and sharing a holistic Gospel message with the local community.
Kerith Ministries is a derivative of the preaching and teaching ministry of River of God Full Gospel Church, which Pastor Sam founded as a church-plant after leaving Jinja, Uganda’s second largest city, to minister in the rural, poor northeast region of Pallisa.
