Securing Ministry Land
Land ownership is very complex in Uganda because of the cultural and historical contexts. For example, land can be owned, but still have several individuals with standing surface land rights. Surface land rights were created to favor the lower class. Once you own the land you are expected to negotiate with the squatters and those with surface land rights.
NHU owns their land, but we need to finish these negotiations now as inflation continues to impact costs. It is our desire to make a wise investment now, so that we will have more funding to care for our children into the future. Give today.
Our Ugandan board has consulted with a lawyer for an cost to complete legal work for all our remaining land issues.
