The People Care Center

The People Care Center (PCC) uses a combined approach to serve women, children and vulnerable families in Africa (Uganda pilot program) with medical care, legal services, and social services including food, clothing and counseling in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We recognize that all people share a common humanity, and vulnerable people have a muted voice in the halls of justice and government. UAWCR believes that we are all are responsible for those who need help and they have to be respected and treated with dignity when we provide that help. Our staff will be trained to provide services with a special focus on grace by using respectful verbal and body language. UAWCR and our world community of local and international foundation partners, staff and volunteers will alleviate the suffering caused by poverty and civil war. This model will be replicated in other African countries.
