Rotary Heart for UgandaCLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Alissa Cooper Sanders, a Clarion-Limestone graduate and former teacher, returned home from Uganda, Africa, and updated members of the Clarion Rotary Club on efforts of Heart for Uganda to lead people to spiritual and physical transformation.

Future plans for Heart for Uganda include the development of an agricultural program and construction of a boarding section for the group’s school.  Alissa told Rotarians about the extreme poverty in Uganda, including the living conditions and basic human needs, and the efforts in strengthening its McFarland Memorial Medical Center.

In 2009, Alissa decided to become a missionary and leave her job teaching at C-L and start Heart for Uganda.

It partners with God’s Care Ministries, founded by Pastor Victor Sande, Alissa’s husband.

A video from 2015 shows a glimpse of the group’s work in Uganda.

“Heart for Uganda primarily focuses on providing human and physical resources to empower God’s Care Ministries in Uganda and works alongside this local organization to show the love of Christ to a nation that desperately needs it,” said Alissa.

The international organization is headquartering in the Clarion area and its address is P.O. Box 125, Clarion, PA 16214.

Alissa and husband Victor have three children, Caleb, Vanea, and Gabriel.
