A letter from Lufafa:
Lord's Compassion Ministry is located in a village called Mafubira, near Jinja, Uganda. We are registered with the local Ugandan government. As of January 6, 2017, we are also registered in the state of Oregon and are a tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit. Our EIN is 81-4853869.
I am forever grateful for the people who stand with me and provided food, shelter, medical supplies, and school fees to children when we were not yet a nonprofit. Thank you for your compassion and support.
I established the Mafubira Community Clinic and children's home due the high mortality rate of orphans who are suffering, starving, and dying without medical care, food, shelter and proper clothing. The project is aimed at promoting the standard of living of the children in my community and alleviating their suffering. I have a bachelors in nursing and have seen first hand how children are suffering. When children are given a chance, they can look to their future with hope and become successful members of their community. A major challenge that hinders our goals is lack of funds to effectively satisfy the needs of the children. The clinic is free of charge for families who are unable to take their children to the government hospital, which at times can be without needed supplies and medicines. I now call upon you with a compassionate heart to partner with us to support children in Mafubira.
The clinic is still under construction, therefore leaving me to treat patients in a small room of a building nearby. Once the building is completed, it will serve as a clinic and children's home. There are also future plans for the building of a school, store, and buying land to farm to create food, jobs, and income.

A letter from Jazmen:
Lufafa Emmanuel and myself (Jazmen Draper), and many other people living around the world, are working together to bring material, medical, and spiritual needs to the vulnerable children in the village of Mafubira located in southern Uganda. Our goal is to move towards community development with self-sustaining projects. Lufafa, who is a nurse, provides children with life-saving medical care. A clinic and children’s home is in the process of being built allowing Lufafa more room to treat patients and store medical supplies. The most vulnerable children will have a place to sleep as well. We would like to purchase land to build a school and store. There are future goals to start farming. Right now donations go towards paying school fees and rent, buying food and clothing for 30 children. Our long-term goal is to be able to care for more than 30 children. We are also in the process of raising money to install a water well in the community. Water is a necessity to life and breaking the cycle of poverty. Our dream is to see children learn, grow, and discover their God given identity and value through love, education, and understanding their worth and value.
