The Team in Uganda
Ludovick and Lydia co-ordinate the activities of Serve Africa in Uganda
Ludovick and Lydia are leaders of the Victorious Life Church in Mbalala, about 2km from the refugee camp at Kivuuvu. Lydia was originally a social worker, working with street children and Ludovick previously worked in a local hotel. They both come from the eastern part of Uganda, not far from the region the refugees fled from. About 6 years ago they started to build links with the people at Kivuuvu. Ludovick and Lydia administer the allocation of funds, co-ordinate with the camp and maintain links to the school and college where we have sent students. Lydia also leads the counseling that we are undertaking with the people at the camps. They work tirelessly and on a voluntary basis.
