Photos and testimonials from those who have served short-term in Uganda can be found here .

Visit OPUM’s website at www.opum.org for many other important details.

Keep in mind: Living requirements for Karamoja are unique, and you will find an extensive and carefully detailed visitor’s handbook (Karamoja Handbook) on the website, a must-read for anyone interested in serving in this remote region of the world. In the Handbook, you’ll find information about the work of the Karamoja station, the application process (including visas, insurance and vaccinations), what to pack, rules for community living, local standards of conduct, and even critters and varmints!

If you are in good health and prepared to stay for at least a month of service, visit the OPUM website to learn more! Our missionaries in Uganda love the fellowship and help of short-term visitors. With advance knowledge of you and your skill set, they will determine how best to put your gifts to work to advance the goals of the mission. Whether in Karamoja or Mbale, you will learn an immense amount about the local people and culture, as well as the labors of our missionaries there.
