Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

This is a great chance to meet the staff of EMI Uganda and hear about their work.

We are exited to be joining EMI Uganda for a lunch seminar to meet Uganda and UK staff working there. Megan Ross from the UK has recently joined the office as an intern and we will be hearing about her experience and how well the Uganda and International interns work together to design a world of hope. Laura and Adam Gordon from the UK have been serving in Uganda for over three years.

This online meeting will also give supporters, volunteers, and interested design professionals a chance to hear direct from the Uganda staff and help us understand how we can pray and support them, including volunteering by helping remotely with their project work and, Covid depending, going on a project trip.

We will feature a couple of projects and also hear briefly about the work of the EMI R&D department in the Uganda office.

This meeting will take place via Zoom at 12:30-13:30 GMT.
