Zabina Nalumondo and family

Zabina Nalumondo and family. Zabina is living with HIV/AIDS. She lost her husband in 2009 due to AIDS and is now taking care of four grandchildren whom she is not able to care for well because of her illness and poverty.

The HIV/AIDS epidemic has created an orphan crisis in Uganda; its believed over 1.5 million Ugandan children under 14 have lost a parent or both to the epidemic. These children are left helpless, Jesus is Lord Ministries is supporting such Children through education support which includes scholastic materials e.g. Books, Pens, pencils, and school uniform.

A person living with HIV/AIDS needs our support, care and encouragement to be able to handle their situation better without resentment. In this category, Jesus is Lord Ministries is helping people living with HIV/AIDS through counseling, training in micro enterprise, and treatment.

Welcome!

This website is the online home of Jesus Is Lord Ministries.

We are located in Wairaka Village, Kakira Sub County, Jinja District in Uganda. We are 7km away from Jinja town, near the shores of Lake Victoria Iganga High.

Jesus is Lord Ministries is a faith-based organization, reaching across all the denominations and mainstream religions. Our ministry is motivated by Christ’s message of love to the children, “Let the children come to me.”

The vision of Jesus Is Lord Ministries is to embrace needy widows and and orphaned children, caring for them and meeting their needs from basic living to their spiritual needs, and to sustainably enrich, support and equip the vulnerable orphans with knowledge, skills and attitude to realize and use their own potentials for their better welfare and that of their communities.

We work, with the help of local churches, donors, sponsors, and volunteers, to restore hope to the AIDS orphaned, vulnerable, homeless orphans and widows who are being left to struggle in the district of Jinja and in Ugandan communities at large.

We understand that as an individual or the member of an organization you are asked frequently to give money. We know that it is important for you that your money is used wisely and effectively. Some of the main strengths of our projects is that there is no waste and very little loss of resources, and you can see clearly the result of your donations. We act directly on the ground with volunteers or paid workers, we don’t have to go through bribes, political contributions or anything else. Our operations are modest and low-key. (We are not one of those organizations using brand new $40,000 four-wheel drive vehicles or staying in fancy hotels with swimming pools, or buying ultimate technology equipment.) A financial contribution from you can make a huge difference directly into someone’s life, with results that you can see as the help is in process. You can help to relieve one of the major burdens on the shoulder of Africans. Helping AIDS orphans and widows to access better health care, nutritious food and formal and vocational education is one of the most concrete things we can do in showing them Christ and in lifting them out of poverty and thus giving them a chance at a good life.
