Rev Adundo Wafula Alfred

Rev Alfred Adundo Wafula established Macedonian Children’s Outreach Project (MCOP) in 2005, in response to the desperate conditions he found the people of Masese living in. With a small amount of savings he helped fund 50 children to go to their local primary schools. His vision of a transformed community, lifted out of poverty has grown stronger as his relationships within the community have deepened, and MCOP became part of the umbrella NGO Macedonian Vision Africa (MVA) in 2012. With the support of his wife and family and his love for God, he continues to work with compassion for a forgotten and overlooked community.

Born in 1964 Bugiri district, Alfred moved to Jinja, Uganda in 2000. He married Rose in 1984 and was the Pastor at Nile Baptist Church, Jinja for many years until December 2019. From January 2020 Alfred will be committing most of his time to the work of MVA.
