About us

Robert Welishe, Rosemary Neumbe, Mbale|Uganda Our names are Robert Welishe and Rosemary Neumbe from eastern part of Uganda  Mbale Districts. God has given us 5 children and we are both 53 years old. After our level  of Education God called us on the line of carring for the needy. This calling started before we were married. In 1983 we worked with a Christian Organization called Christian  fellowship outreach in partnership with Outreach International in Mbale Uganda. This  organization was helping orphans in Luwero trangle in 1983-1985. During Obate II war,  many people were killed in Luwero trangle. Many children became orphans. 1985 we started to work in Kenya with Outreach International in the district Maralal in  Samburu- northern part of Kenya, helping the needy and church planting. In 1985 April  20th Rosemary and I decided to marry. We therefore had our wedding ceremony in  Nairobi. After our marriage we stayed in Nairobi for some months and later I went to work  with the same organization in Eastern Kenya place called Kitale, the work of church  plating. In 1986 we decided to come back to Uganda. We stayed in the village (Busiu) for  some time. From 1991-1994 we worked with a group called “Called Christians” in Jinja.  We were both directors during that time. 1994 we jointed a Dutch Organization called  ZOA Refugee Care in Rwanda- during Rwanda Genocide, 1994-2000. In 2000 ZOA  Refugee Care transferred us from Rwanda program to Sudan. This was during the war  between Arabs and southern Sudanese.  In 2007 we left the work with ZOA Refugee  Care to start our own business. We then decided to continue helping orphans and people in need with part of the money we were making. We had registered Peacemaker  Company in Sudan. So we also registered it in Uganda and opened a Guesthouse in  Mbale town. That is where Joanna and Hannah joined us. And we have now registered  an NGO called “Give me Hope Uganda” to continue the great work God has given us.  That is to help the orphans and needy people including the helpless aged. Family background: As we mentioned God has given us 5 children. Victor who has a diploma in Education.  Enos who has done a computer course. Brenda who has finished her university degree in  Public Administration. Gabriel also did a computer course. And Sharon who is yet to do A  level. We are currently taking care of one total orphan of six years called Diana and two  other children a girl Cathy (13) and a boy called Isaac  (8) who had been abandoned by  their parents. We also have three grand children.
