Pilgrim Charity Profile
Pilgrim's vision of aid, comfort and relief arose from a simple Christian response to tragedy.
Calvin Echodu, Pilgrim's founder, felt deeply called to respond to the plight of the suffering populations forgotten and abandoned in the internally displaced persons (IDP) refugee camps in northeastern Uganda. The intolerable conditions in this camp blight the lives and hopes of an entire generation of Africans, and cripple the economic fortitude not only of these people but of the future of the region and country of Uganda.
More than a million people in the northeast still live in these refugee camps: families broken by war, children orphaned by AIDS, farmers who cannot farm, and children who cannot go to school. Life in these camps is characterized by crippling poverty, disease, hunger, lack of clothing and shelter, increasing environmental degradation, and the loss of heritage and traditional ways of life.
