Fundraising visit to Australia by John Paul Kiffasi and Pastor Alfred Komagum

There are some great events coming up within IGF over the next few months, and one of those is a visit to Australia by Executive Director (Uganda) John Paul Kiffasi and Pastor Alfred Komagum. Some of you will know these guys quite well, as they tour various cities in Australia each year throughout November. This visit is a little different from previous ones, so be sure to come along to the events near you.

John Paul and Ps Alfred will be in Australia between Friday 29th May and Sunday 14th June. They will be in Brisbane from 29th May to 3rd June, Adelaide from 4th to 7th June, and finally Sydney from 8th to 14th June.

There will be various events held in each of the cities. For further details, see coming events.


Movie Premiere and Fundraiser: The Good Lie

The feature event in each city will be a movie screening showcasing the movie ‘The Good Lie’.  Here’s what others have to say about it:

Max Lucado

“The Good Lie is powerful and touchingly real. This compelling story of suffering and self-sacrifice, pain and joy resurrects the notion of the human spirit overcoming desperate circumstances.”

Rick Warren, author of Purpose Driven Life

“There’s two great stories in The Good Lie. One is the story that brings awareness to how millions of people are living in refugee camps around the world. The other story tells us you don’t have to be perfect to make a difference. I’m telling my five million followers on Facebook to spread the word about this important film.”

Why not come along and enjoy a good movie and at the same time help us raise funds to create opportunities for the children of Uganda.  Better still, invite your friends too!

“The Good Lie” 2014. Staring  Reese WitherspoonArnold Oceng, and Ger Duany.
 “Four Sudanese children are orphaned after their village is massacred in the Second Sudanese Civil War. Consequently, they make an arduous and dangerous trek through the plains, enduring hardship, death and sacrifice all the way until they reach safety in a refugee camp in Ethiopia. Years later, these youths are among 3600 selected for resettlement in America, only to have the one girl among them sent to Boston, while the three boys must to make a new life in Kansas City. Together, these young men must adjust to an alien culture even as the emotional baggage of their past haunts them. However, these newcomers, and their new friends like employment counsellor Carrie Davis, strive to understand each other in this new home, as they make peace with their histories in a challenge that will change all their lives”.
