CRESS received a grant to enable glasses and bibles to be purchased for the refugees we support in Uganda. We have just received this report from Joel Abate.
“The first phase of the eye assessment at the camp took place in Imvepi Refugee camp and Mijale Kerwa Sub-County in Yumbe district to scrutinize the Savings Group leaders’ and church leaders’ vision challenges.
Once the results had come through we purchased 140 different pairs of glasses!
We were able to purchase 50 Bari Bibles and 15 English Bibles.”

“Thank you DOL and CRESS UK for always remembering us and providing us with free reading glasses which are very expensive in the market for us to afford.”
“In Imvepi Refugees Settlement, we showed a Jesus Film for the Savings Group members after the annual conference celebration. It was a very touching moment, many responded to the message and stood for Prayers.”
