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.

ROTOM Senior Citizen Center

Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM) is a Christian not for profit organization whose mission is to reach poor, older persons with the Gospel of Jesus in word and deed throughout Uganda.  The ministry provides a wide variety of services including:  home visits, weekly Christian fellowships and counseling, meal provision to the elderly, medical treatments, funerals, hygiene training and housing and home renovation projects.  These efforts have had life-changing and lasting impacts on seniors served.

As the ministry grew, so did the need for innovative and sustainable ways to meet the needs of seniors in Uganda. This new initiative involved the design of a Seniors Health Center & Hospice Unit on two acres of land, where sick and terminally ill seniors can come for medical treatment and specialized care. In June of 2007, ROTOM teamed up with EMI Canada to help make their vision come to life. The EMI team prepared a master plan for the site including administration, health center, hospice, staff hostel, residence components and more.
