About South Sudan

Our center in Yei, South Sudan opened its door on Christmas Day 2006 by welcoming the first 10 children to their new home and feeding over 1,000 people. Over the next ten years, the ministry grew to be a home for 135 children and served a wide variety of people in their community. Then in November 2016 they had to flee and arrived in Luwero, Uganda as refugees from South Sudan’s Civil War.  Their adopted hometown is about one and a half hours from the capital city of Kampala and has a population of approximately 475,000. Our main focus continues to be on our children, but we do have many opportunities to preach in the local churches, schools, and refugee camps.


New Home:
Our biggest project is to rebuild our lives here in Uganda.  We are starting all over again and we need a home.  We currently rent and the space is very small for all of our children.  We do have land and water so we are ready to build. Our current priorities for building are the kitchen & dining room, storeroom, boys’ home, and girls’ home.

Our Children:
Sponsor our children through our Stop for the One sponsorship program.

Milk Clinic:
We also participate in Stop for the One’s Milk Program sponsorship and it is pure joy to watch babies go from the brink of death to thriving, life-abundant little ones!

3 years of faith journey!

Greetings Family, I find it hard to believe that we are approaching the three-year anniversary of our great exodus from South Sudan into Uganda! Every step in this journey has been a faith step, not knowing the end from the beginning, but God knew. Right from the start of the war I had to trust...

Witchdoctor Goes Out Of Business

It’s been another busy month in the Iris Uganda household. We took another trip to the Refugee Camps to visit some relatives of the children. Again, these children haven’t seen a relative in three to ten years! It is always an emotional reunion, this time no different. When we arrived at the camp, we...

Stopping For The One Saves A Life

My first story is the BEST of all. Our social worker who is part of my staff was visiting one of the schools that some of our children go to. It is the furthest school from our compound. As she was coming back she passed a teenage boy who appeared to be drunk walking down the dirt road. She kept driv...
