Mud hut arson hits the poorest
Last night more than 20 huts were deliberately burnt in Uganda's Namatala slum – families woke up with burning embers falling on their heads and were just able to escape with their lives.
This despicable act hits some of the poorest families, who weren't able to save any of the few belongings they call their own. At this stage it’s not known who is to blame.
We think only one of our families was directly affected and today we organised to move them to a safer house and replace some of the bare essentials. Frustratingly, this this is one of the homes that a team from the Lighthouse Family Church worked on when they were here last year repairing the roof.
We are also giving out donated clothes to the various families that have been affected.
