Over two-thirds of the workforce in Uganda is engaged in agriculture, and over 1.5 million live with AIDS. The infant mortality rate is another concern, as 60 Ugandan babies die for every 1,000 live births. Economic development is inhibited by corruption, unreliable power, high energy costs, and a lack of transportation. Instability in South Sudan is another risk, as Uganda is a key destination for Sudanese and Congolese refugees, which causes a burden on the economy.
- That God will supply the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable in Uganda.
- For an end to war in South Sudan and the Congo, which is driving many refugees across the border.
- For the gospel to continue spreading and changing lives throughout the country.
