Refugee Support Group

The Emmanuel Refugee Support Group (ERSG) has been active since the 1980s. We have sponsored families and individuals from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Liberia, Syria, and Bosnia, among other countries. We also provide support to government-sponsored families that need additional help. 2024 was a special year as we were finally able to welcome 12 refugees from the DRC who had been patiently waiting in Uganda for many years. ERSG is open to all those church members concerned about the plight of refugees.
