Nabaasa Patience, has for the last two years since the Covid 19 pandemic lockdown, been transforming lives of the less privileged in different societies.
With the vision of spreading the love of God practically and continuing the compassion works of Jesus Christ here in the world (Matthew 14:14, Mark 1:41, Luke 7:13, Lamentations 3:22), as a Christian, Nabaasa said she was led to start a community based organisation (Patience Hand of Compassion) with a desire to reach out to those in need especially with basic house items.
“My desire to help people started after examining my life and I realized I have never lacked yet I would have because these people are not so different from me, everything I have wanted I have received and more by the faithfulness of God,” Nabaasa said.
Patience Hand of compassion, which is fully funded by Nabaasa and her friends, has reached out to residents of Mbarara slums and Salaama road in Kampala, God’s grace orphanage in Nakawuka, Wakiso district, MIK orphanage in Hoima district, Kyangwali Refugee Settlement Camp and in December this year, they are headed to St. Mary’s hospital Lacor in Gulu city.
Nabaasa said that they identify a need amongst a group of people, then put out a call for friends to collect resources which are later taken to the group in need, she added that most people need food items to feed them and their families.
Posho, rice, sugar, soap, beans, tea leaves, cooking oil, clothes, scholastic materials, playing toys for children are some of the items that Patience Hand of Compassion has given out in their outreaches and Nabaasa says she is believing God to reach out to more people in the years to come, by God’s grace.
