Donor’s Gift Funds Construction of our First Health Clinic
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — April 14, 2022 — New Beginnings Int. Ministries, Uganda, (USA Partners Executive Team) has announced receipt of the largest one-time gift in the organization’s history. The gift is earmarked to fund construction of the ministry’s first health clinic just outside the town of Iganga, Uganda, East Africa.
On hearing the news, New Beginnings’ founder and president, Isoba Henry Caesar said, “We have tears of joy flowing down our faces today. This clinic will save lives and bring hope to so many. We are thanking God for this beautiful gift and the encouragement it brings to our work of love in Uganda.”
Mike Froncek, Senior Advocate for the USA New Beginnings team, said, “Our hopes, dreams and prayers for this first clinic, (designed to serve resource-challenged rural Ugandan women and children), have been been answered with this amazing generous gift. We are overjoyed and deeply thankful!”
Blueprints for the clinic (to be built on the ministry’s 4.4 acre property) had been drawn and approved more than two years ago, but fund-raising for construction stalled during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The generous donor behind this game-changing gift prefers to remain anonymous, but wrote, “I am moved by the life-saving and life-changing impact of New Beginnings. Every report I read about abandoned and endangered women and babies who are rescued and cared for confirms my belief that God is at work in a mighty way through Henry and his team. To see the long-awaited clinic get built and opened to help those most in need will be exciting indeed!”
In Uganda, 95 percent of the population lives in rural, resource-challenged areas and 80% of Ugandan women (in regions with high birthrates) have limited access to appropriate care. The leading cause of death for Ugandan girls ages 15-18 is pregnancy, and 20% of maternal deaths are caused by abortion-related complications.
New Beginnings is working to meet both the near-term and long-term health needs of Uganda’s at-risk mothers and children through making healthcare more readily available, including through ultrasound services. The ministry is presently actively seeking donors willing to step forward with gifts to be earmarked for ultrasound and other medical gear to equip the new clinic.

ABOUT NEW BEGINNINGS INT. MINISTRIES, UGANDA, EAST AFRICA:
The Mission of New Beginnings International Ministries is to SAVE CHILDREN; EMPOWER WOMEN; BUILD FAMILIES’ FUTURES; and HEAL THROUGH HEALTHCARE.
About the size of Kentucky and Tennessee combined, the East-African nation of Uganda is still recovering from a crippling AIDS epidemic and the ravages of war, which together, killed millions and left additional millions of children orphaned. Since 2009, under the direction and leadership of its founder, Isoba Henry Caesar, New Beginnings has been on the ground providing humanitarian aid and comfort to impoverished and threatened women and children.
RUTH HOUSE WOMEN’S RESCUE SHELTER:
Established by New Beginnings in early 2020, Ruth House is a home for vulnerable women and girls who are pregnant and homeless or pregnant and threatened with starvation or violence in their homes of origin. Ruth House provides safety (it is within a secure walled compound with locking doors) and provides residents with a bed, food, water, electric light, food preparation space and a bathroom. In addition, residents receive education and vocational career training.
PROPOSED RUTH HOUSE 26-BED DORMITORY:
The ministry is actively seeking donors to support construction of a 26-bed RUTH HOUSE dormitory on our 4.4-acre clinic property. It would be secured from public access and include a maximum of 24 beds for residents (2-beds to a room) and two additional rooms with one bed in each for resident staff. The facility would include community bath and shower, kitchen, dining area, teaching and training space and a small library. The enclosed outdoor space would feature a place for residents to read, relax, exercise and study. Vocational classes could also be held in the outdoor space. The dormitory would be within easy walking distance of our on-campus community health clinic.
Naming rights (and memorial naming rights) for the dormitory will be considered for donors willing to support two-thirds or more of the dormitory construction, valued at $250,000. Donors wishing to discuss this opportunity should reach out to Mike Froncek, [email protected]
