Uganda: refugee healing
Give thanks for the work of local partner Sam Malish (who featured in our Christmas Appeal). He reports that in the second half of 2021, 34 new trauma healing groups were started in Imvepi refugee settlement in northern Uganda, which reached more than 800 people. Sam's team also provided 25 children's workers with specific "Walking with Wounded Children" training. Covid restrictions were still hampering the in-person work. Pray for Sam and the team.
