Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, "Here I am." If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,10 if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. 11 And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:9-11(ESV)

The devastating effect of AIDS in Uganda cannot be overstated. The fastest growing identifiable segment of the Ugandan population is orphans. Christians have risen to meet this challenge in a number of ways. This crisis also effects women and has led to a growing network of ministry to women and the building of schools.

The January 17, 2000 issue of Newsweek contains an excellent cover story on the issue of AIDS orphans in Africa, including Uganda.

Sadly, there is no mention of the involvement of Christians in the effort to meet the needs of the ophans, but it does give some very significant background information.

The article with photographs covers pages 32 to 48.
