About Lord’s Compassion Ministry
LCM began as a grassroots effort, spearheaded by Lufafa Emmanuel, a trained nurse, pastor, and Uganda native. As a nurse serving in the impoverished community of Mafubira, Uganda, Lufafa witnessed firsthand the great need for accessible healthcare for the children in his village. Most did not have access to necessary food, clothing, or life-saving medical care, and many were homeless. In December of 2014, Lufafa met Jazmen Draper and together they formed Lord’s Compassion Ministry, which became an official 501(c)3 nonprofit in January of 2017.Lord’s Compassion Ministry is 100% volunteer operated.
To help vulnerable children become filled with hope and the love of Jesus by partnering with them and their community to meet spiritual, educational, emotional, and physical needs.
To help children and their communities become self-sustaining.
Sustainable Development & Self-Sufficiency:
We closely partner with local churches and communities (Mafubira and Buluuta) in Uganda to assess community needs and guide communities in implementing holistic, powerful change that can be sustained for generations. We ensure that those served, including children, have a voice and are included in decision-making, encouraging community ownership of projects.
Regardless of individuals’ circumstances or beliefs, Lord’s Compassion Ministry empowers them to participate in their community and improve their own lives through access to life-saving healthcare and education, and economic development and training. We value each child and adult and help him or her build their skills, enhancing future and current economic and educational opportunities.
We believe in God and understand the importance of spirituality, regardless of the faith, beliefs, or religions practiced by those served. We work with all communities to more deeply engage them in spiritual practices through non-denominational worship services and prayer groups.
We actively practice transparency, particularly regarding programming results and allocation of funds. We share internal organizational practices and other relevant information through our blog, website, and social media channels. If you have a question about our finances, programs, or any other aspect of the organization, please do not hesitate to reach out.
