This is my beloved daughter, as Rossette calls herself.  
 She lives in the nation of Uganda, a lush, tropical and landlocked nation in central Africa.  

Rosette's Daddy has terminal AIDS, and her mommy and she and her little brother  are root diggers.   Here is a brief and recent history on the nation of Uganda.

A Dictator's Reign of Terror

On Jan. 25, 1971, Colonel Amin deposed President Obote. Obote went into exile in Tanzania. Amin expelled Asian residents and launched a reign of terror against Ugandan opponents, torturing and killing tens of thousands. In 1976, he had himself proclaimed "President for Life." In 1977, Amnesty International estimated that 300,000 may have died under his rule, including church leaders and recalcitrant cabinet ministers.
After Amin held military exercises on the Tanzanian border in 1978, angering Tanzania's president, Julius Nyerere, a combined force of Tanzanian troops and Ugandan exiles loyal to former president Obote invaded Uganda and chased Amin into exile in Saudi Arabia in 1979. After a series of interim administrations, President Obote led his People's Congress Party to victory in 1980 elections that opponents charged were rigged. On July 27, 1985, army troops staged a coup and took over the government. Obote fled into exile. The military regime installed Gen. Tito Okello as chief of state.

Mercy Missions International is an operation of Mercy Christian Fellowship, incorporated as Mercy Ministries, a Texas corporation exempt from taxes under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The primary source of funding is from individual donors. Because local administration costs are covered by Mercy Christian Fellowship and because all the members of the leadership team serve on a volunteer basis, 100% of donations are applied directly to fund project costs.
