Christian Missionary sued in Uganda for quackery, causing 100s of child deaths

An American woman Renee Bach who runs a Christian ministry in Uganda is being sued for operating an illegal medical facility in the country for over a decade through her non-profit “Serving His Children” (SHC).

A lawsuit filed by Women’s Probono Initiative (WPI) and two Ugandan mothers who claim their children died in Bach’s care, states that she impersonated a doctor leading to the deaths of Ugandan children.

Bach is accused of donning a white coat and stethoscope and performing minor medical procedures on sickly children, many of whom were suffering from malnutrition. The 35-year-old is said to have performed the procedures at a private clinic in her home in Uganda. While working there, The Times reported scores of deaths were recorded.

Missionary Renee Bach, accused of quackery leading to deaths of 100s of Ugandan children over a decade

The charity SHC is funded by American donors and describes itself as “God-breathed and directed ministry working to end malnutrition”, but does not mention Ms Bach’s role.

She was supposed to be in court in March, but she reportedly did not show up.

Women’s Probono Initiative, which filed the lawsuit with the two mothers, said they were led to believe Bach was a ‘medical doctor’ and that her home was a ‘medical facility’ and she was seen wearing a white coat and stethoscope. She was also seen giving medication to children, according to the lawsuit.

The illegal clinic was ordered to close by local health authorities in 2015, but Bach continued to take in children who needed medical attention. The babies of the case’s two complainants, Gimbo Zubeda and Kakai Rose, were among those who died at the SHC facility after Bach failed to shut its doors.

The mothers allege that when their children died they were told that Bach didn’t have medical training and her facility had been closed in 2015 and ordered to stop treating children. Bach’s actions are believed to have led to the death of hundreds of children. 

A group called No White Saviors (NWS) is using Twitter to try and bring attention the case.

They’ve also asked for help finding a Virginia licensed attorney to consult on pursuing legal action in US against Bach and ‘Serving His Children’.

The organization claims that many of Bach’s ‘victims’ are still alive are left permanently scarred including disfiguration and mental illness.

Bach’s attorney, David Gibbs from the National Center for Life and Liberty (NCLL), stated the allegations were false. In a statement, NCLL claimed “Serving His Children” partners with the Uganda Ministry of Health and that ‘reputational terrorists’ are attacking Renee Bach.
NCLL defines itself as “Our nonprofit legal ministry serves to protect and defend the Bible-based values upon which our nation (USA) was founded”

HinduPost Note

Quack healing is a standard practise of the missionary mafia to lure unsuspecting, poor, suffering people. Thousands of quack missionary healers are operating today across Bharat, and some of them like the famous evangelist charlatan Benny Hinn even manage to get approval of ‘secular, rational’ political parties to conduct mammoth ‘healing’ camps.

Whether it is illegal medical treatment of the sort Renee Bach is accused of, or abuse & exploitation in Christian orphanages and children’s homes, children are a prime target for the soul harvesting vultures and assorted criminals operating under the garb of ‘spreading God’s word’. Many unsuspecting donors in US and other Western countries are emotionally blackmailed into donating money by these unscrupulous operators.

If a lawsuit of the sort that has been filed in Uganda against Renee Bach were to be replicated in Bharat, the entire secular ecosystem would be up in arms shouting ‘majoritarian bigotry’. But act we must, as the well-being of our children and future of our civilization rests on it.
