The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles

[Flag] Uganda is a small nation is East-central Africa. With fertile and well- watered land, Uganda is known as the "Pearl of Africa". The economy is dependent on the export of coffee.

Uganda gained independence from Great Britain in 1962. Tribal warfare caused a state of near anarchy until Idi Amin seized power in 1971. Amin's crazed dictatorship destroyed Uganda's economy and social fabric, and up to two million Ugandans died during his reign of terror. Though the nation now has a democratic government, it still must grapple with a growing AIDS epidemic, with more than 30% of the popul ation now infected with the deadly virus.

Uganda suffered intense religious persecution during Amin's dictatorship, but there is now religious freedom. Professing Christians comprise the overwhelming majority of the population. Even so, Uganda has undergone total moral decay.
