Many prisons around the world are primitive and barren compared to the prisons in America. Uganda is no exception. This ministry reaches out to those in prison who desperately need the good news of the gospel. Horn of Salvation Ministries (HOSM) reaches to those prisoners through various outreach activities such as hairstyling to share the gospel. During these outreaches, personal hygiene items are also brought to make life in prison slightly more comfortable.
The hospital ministry goes to the sick and dying to encourage them, pray for them and share the gospel. For some this may be the last opportunity to repent, put their trust and faith in Jesus Christ and receive eternal life.
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Only a $20 donation will provide a care package for either a hospital or prison visit. This package includes soap and personal hygiene items. This will allow entry to the prison and access to the prisoners to preach and witness to them as they receive these care packages. Another need is medicine for the prisoners. They have a hard lifestyle and are frequently sick and hurt, but the medical clinic has no medicine. A $20 donation will provide medicine to sick and hurt prisoners.
I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
We also ask for donations of t-shirts and knee length shorts. The prisoners are not issued any new clothes. What they have has been handed down to them from prisoners who are leaving. Many times these clothes are torn or ripped or dirty or all of these. Your donations would allow prisoners to have some dignity and know that people care for them and that they are loved and not forgotten.
