How does Amani Uganda give thanks?Each woman of the Amani Uganda center takes time to reflect on the blessings in her life---despite a troubled past. A few years ago, the women of Amani Uganda were living "in the bush" as captives of the Lord's Resistance Army, a brutal military and religious group that terrorized civilians in Uganda and surrounding countries. During this time of thanks, the Amani Uganda ladies wish to share with you the beautiful blessings in their lives.
