Prayers of the People


Missy Ward-Angalla

Kampala, Uganda

Missy Ward-Angalla is the refugee women’s advocacy coordinator for Refuge and Hope International, ministering among urban refugees from more than 10 different countries. The ministry serves more than 1,000 people annually, walking alongside them as they rebuild their lives.

Missy began a program at Refuge and Hope called Amani Sasa, which helps refugee women and girls who are traumatized, abused, trafficked and vulnerable to exploitation. Amani Sasa features a shelter recovery program for young women who have faced severe trauma and exploitation, a school sponsorship program for vulnerable children, two vocational training programs for women at risk, self-help community groups that assist women to save, support and disciple one another, as well as a social work ministry for refugees in crisis. Amani Sasa also includes a scholarship program for refugee children from at-risk families.

Pray for:

  • The physical, emotional and spiritual health of the women and girls that Amani Sasa serves
  • Refugee families at Refuge and Hope International
  • Support for Amani Sasa’s programs
