The head of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Mbarara Archdiocese, the Rev Fr John Baptist Bashobora, on Sunday held special prayers for children suffering from nodding syndrome and their families in Kitgum District.
Kitgum alone has 1,451 cases of both nodding syndrome and epilepsy.
Fr Bashobora held the prayers at Tumangu village in Akwanga Sub-county. He said the special prayer for the nodding victims and their families was meant to provide spiritual healing and hope.
“This is the only way to heal. Parents of children that are recovering from nodding disease should desist from engaging in witchcraft with perceptions that such tendencies can heal,” he said.
The district Woman MP, Ms Beatrice Anywar, delivered clothes, shoes and beddings which she said were donations from good Samaritans.
