Uganda: Ready to Forgive

Aired 2007-08. Uganda: Ready to Forgive Presented by National Council of Churches USA, produced by the Evangelical LutheranChurch in America


This was an African story of God's amazing grace. Through 20 years of war, the Acholi people of Northern Uganda endured rape, torture and child abduction. Thousands died, many were displaced in squalid camps. Others are still missing. Despite all of this, the Acholi are united in a belief that the only real solution is reconciliation and forgiveness. They are ready to forgive. Immaculée Ilibagiza, Rwandan genocide survivor and best-selling author, hosted the African story of grace.
