"Information on the developing situation in Mbale is reaching us from various sources.
The latest information from the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/Africa/8556669.stm describes the scale of the response that will be needed in the Mount Elgon region in Mbale.
Peter Mawdit, a member of the 2 St James and the Love Africa Steering Group has provided this report on the current situation
Edith Wakumire, the leader of UWCM in Mbale sent an email last night explaining she will visit the areas effected today (Thursday) and provide a further update
We have assured our partners in Uganda of our continued prayers for their work, the people affected and the aid effort, and again, that Love Africa will try to be ready to respond to other needs they identify and feel we could support
Your prayers at this time are deeply appreciated"
