Love+One has 3 main areas of community outreach.
There are hundreds of remote villages outside of Masindi with limited access to medical care. People in these villages often die from easily-preventable diseases like malaria or minor infections that escalate into greater health issues. Love+One partners with the local hospitals to host a medical outreach program that reaches 7 villages. Each village has a liaison that communicates any medical needs in the community to the Love+One staff.
We distribute food to unemployed families in various communities as we help them find jobs that will enable them to provide for their families. In January 2018, a severely malnourished little girl named Sharon came to the Love+One Rescue Center. Sharon was rehabilitated, resettled, and since then, we have purchased an acre of land for her mother to cultivate. Here, she grows beans and corn that allow her to not only feed her household, but also to sell for income.
The Love+One Staff host weekly Bible studies with men from the villages. Fathers of resettled children and friends from their communities gather and learn about the gospel and the hope that can only be found in Christ. In a patriarchal culture, this program teaches men how to lead their families and raise their children in the Word, so that generations to come can be vessels of change.
The core of all of our projects is SUSTAINABILITY. Our goal is to present people with outlets to provide for themselves so that they are not reliant on our handouts and assistance.
