UGANDA – Muslim family burn Christian convert’s possessions; other young convert mother denounced by family

On 13 January, Jazila’s Muslim family denounced her for becoming a Christian and then burnt all her possessions, including clothes, shoes and money. Jazila is 26 and has a young daughter. The same day, the family of another young convert mother, Fauzia, also from south-west Uganda, threw her out, before writing a formal letter stating that she was no longer a member of their family. Both women are being cared for by the local church, from where our partner writes: “They need both spiritual and physical support … Tell the brethren to pray with us.”
