Prayers of the People

AlfordKAREN ALFORD

MBARARA, UGANDA

www.cbf.net/alford

After serving in Indonesia for the last nine years, Karen now serves in Southwest Uganda to help meet the medical needs of incoming refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Burundi, Rwanda and other African countries. The most vulnerable refugees are pregnant women, lactating mothers, newborns and children under five years of age, persons living with HIV/AIDS, persons with disabilities and the elderly who need special consideration in order to access critical health services.

Karen sees patients, works with local medically-trained staff, promotes health among refugee families, identifies and registers pregnant women, and promotes prenatal care, skilled deliveries, postnatal and new born care.

PRAY FOR:

  • The partnership with Medical Teams International.
  • The newly-opened fistula repair clinic and the women in need of its services as a result of maternal complication or sexual violence.
  • Opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ to people affected by disaster, conflict and poverty around the world.
