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.

Project Portfolio

Cherish Uganda Health Center

The Cherish Uganda Health Center plays an important role in the organization’s desire to “Change the Story” for children living with HIV/AIDS. Caring staff provide HIV testing, treatment, and counseling within the facility, as well as awareness and education for communities in the surrounding region.

EMI Uganda has been a partner with Cherish since 2012, providing site planning, architecture, engineering, and construction management for phased development on a 20-acre site in Bulega. The Health Center established the character for future buildings, using locally-fired exposed clay bricks, well-ventilated and welcoming spaces, and clean, visible detailing.

Custom metalwork, cabinetry, and furniture were designed and fabricated by EMI Uganda.
