In Uganda, Bright Futures partners with the Bishop Onono-Onweng Foundation in supporting the operation of the Lukodi Health Centre and supporting community development. Lukodi was the site of a devastating massacre in 2004 during the war in Northern Uganda. People have returned to the area and are rebuilding their lives. Medical care is a great need in the area with many lives lost to preventable disease. Malaria is rife and infant mortality and maternal death rates are high. In January 2016, Bright Futures and its partner group established the Lukodi Health Centre which now includes maternity services.
Additionally, Bright Futures supports the education of students of refugee families who have fled the violence in South Sudan.
