Kerith Ministries COVID-19 Update

We received the following update from Pastor Samuel at Kerith Ministries in Pallisa, Uganda.


Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of Jesus, we pray that you are doing well during this challenging time. On behalf of my family and Kerith ministries, we thank God for you and your household members for His protection and provision. 

We briefly want to share with you what has transpired in the last 21 days of our country lock down. In the last 21 days, Uganda has registered 58 cases, over 30 have been discharged and we are so grateful to the Lord because none has died. The entire country is still in the lock down for the next 16 days.

Kerith children 33 in number and the staff, we are all doing well and still taking all the measures and guidelines put in place by the ministry of health in a way to adopt to the changes we are experiencing. We have redesigned our programmes in order to adapt to the new changes. 

Our children are involved in farming since it’s a rainy season. We have also made arrangements for them to learn some skills like tailoring, computer lessons, they are also having quality time with our social worker in handling their carrier guidance, above all have a quality time in prayer and worship. In the past 21 days as a ministry, we took some measures on how to impact the children and the community spiritually and physically. We have taken time in prayer and feeding the community. This has been possible through your generosity and your support during this trial moment. 

Due to the extension of the lock down, so many families still struggle to find what to eat, something that is leading to so many body failures and sicknesses in the community. This is because most of the families depend on hand to mouth survival. On behalf of the people of Uganda, we want to say thank you more especially for the support you have given to the people of Pallisa. Thank you for your prayers and touching their lives physically. Please know that we are praying for you as well knowing the hard times you are living in and challenges you are going through as well. 

We love you so much and please continue to pray with us.

Pastor Samuel Mwesigwa
