Two years ago we reported the story, “Protection Through Pierced Ears in Uganda,” about one of our most innovative programs—an Amber Alert designed to save children from being sacrificed in Uganda.
Project manager Obed Byamugisha risks his life every day in a battle against witch doctors. Last month we got an update on the project and his personal life. See how communities in Uganda are working together to keep their children safe.
I take Obed Byamugisha to a Panera in San Diego for his first breakfast sandwich. He’s made a trip to the United States to speak with World Vision donors about the incredible work of the Amber Alert project in Uganda. He sips tea while we talk.
“The year you came, we lost nine children,” he says. Nine children—lost to child sacrifice.
“Last year, we lost two,” he continues.
