HistoryLet’s Serve Christ Ministries (LSCM) is a Christian non-profit organization that aims to take care of orphans and vulnerable children while also contributing to evangelism & outreach efforts in our community here in Masaka, Uganda.
This organization started in 2011, it is registered as a local Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) under registration number 10910, It is comprised of two programs; the Orphanage ( Born Like Others) and Outreach & evangelism.
The challenge of orphans in this part of the world goes back a while now because of the many challenges that our society has gone through, especially war and disease. Many people died in the past wars that brought the different governments into power in Uganda and Masaka was no exception to the problem.
But the biggest contribution to the situation of orphans and vulnerable children was probably brought by the scourge of HIV/AIDS that wiped out many families and left many child headed households and a community that couldn’t take care of their own.
The orphan problem escalated past the 3 million number in the country with the worst hit area being Masaka and the surrounding communities.
LSCM is one of those at the front line in this fight. Being a Christian organization, we also aimed from the start to contribute to the evangelism efforts of our community, knowing as we do the impact of a Christ transformed life.
The orphanage Born Like Others is a program that takes care of orphans, needy and street children. It has got a home for these children in Masaka town, Uganda! Children in a home are fully taken care of. Other children that have similar needs are helped from their families.
