A US missionary Renee Bach, is being sued by mothers in Uganda who claim her “medical facility” was responsible for the death of their children.
Bach with no medical training, but passion to help treat children with malnutrition, left Virginia in 2007, founded a private NGO and healthcare facility called Serving His Children (SHC) in Uganda.
The NGO which was located in the Jinja town of eastern Uganda, was set up to achieve the aim of treating children suffering from severe malnutrition.
Two mothers of the children that have been victimised, have joined the Women’s Probono Initiative (WPI) in Kampala, to file a lawsuit against Bach and her NGO, alleging she was responsible for the death of their children at the “medical facility”.
After the death of their children, they were told that the District Health Officer had allegedly ordered the facility to be closed in 2015.
Concerning the true identity of the missionary, the mothers and the WPI argue they were misled to believe Bach was a “medical doctor”, noting she often wore a white coat and a stethoscope, and was seen administering medications to children despite having no medical license.
From a reliable source, it has been alleged that over a 100 children passed away while receiving treatment at the missionary’s NGO.
A concerned officer at the WPI Beatrice Kayaga, in a press release stated that, “There are procedural and regulatory mechanisms that ought to be followed when establishing a medical facility in Uganda.
Even so the law provides for licensing agencies and protocols for who should practice medicine in Uganda,”,
“It is unacceptable, narcissistic behavior, for anyone, black or white, rich or poor, missionary or angel to pass off as a ‘medical practitioner’ when they are not. By doing so, they mislead unsuspecting vulnerable members of the public.”
