Pilgrim Africa

Pilgrim Africa is a Christian relief organization created in 2004 as a response to the tragedy of more than a million Ugandans of the Northeastern (Teso) Region driven from their homes by the  Lord’s Resistance Army and forced to live in camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s). Pilgrim is an indigenous Christian NGO founded by and for the people of Teso. 

Pilgrim Africa  provides:

The Redeemer became involved with Pilgrim Africa, formerly Pilgrim-Uganda, through the ministry of our former Rector, the Reverend Dorsey McConnell and has pledged to continue its support since Dorsey's departure.

Our parish has partnered with Pilgrim since 2007, providing significant financial support in the form of outreach grants. The Redeemer’s first mission trip to Uganda took place in 2009, further strengthening our partnership, followed by a second trip in 2011 and an individual visit in 2012.

The second mission trip included a science fair, 38 surgeries by our talented surgeon, and trauma counseling.
