Fund For Assistance
To The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia
PROJECTS: UGANDA
In 2009 FFA began assisting a small ROCOR mission on Bukasa Island in Uganda, in order to help the mission to overcome poverty and become self-sufficient.  The mission, consisting of about 100 locals, is lead by the first black African priest ordained in ROCOR, Fr. Christopher Walusimbi.  
In order to achieve Fr. Christopher’s goal of making the mission self-sufficient, in 2009 the Fund for Assistance raised $22,000 which allowed the mission to:
  • provide education for children in the mission
  • produce 200 bags of charcoal for sale
  • fix the mission’s tractor
  • plant 300 seedlings on the mission’s small orange farm.
Once the seedlings begin to produce fruit, Fr. Christopher plans to sell the oranges and make orange juice, orange wine, jam, and other products. The farm will provide some jobs for the community which, Fr. Christopher hopes will help make ends meet and permit the mission to stand on its own two feet in a few years.
