Wakisa Ministries, Uganda

Providing physical, emotional and spiritual support to young mothers facing trauma and rejection

In the heart of Uganda, Wakisa Ministries runs a pregnancy crisis centre, providing a safe space for young mothers to heal. The women have often suffered sexual abuse from a family member or neighbour, resulting in rejection by their community and at risk of poor health. Wakisa Ministries provides these precious young mothers with the tools they need to support themselves after they leave the centre.
