Children aren't cheap. The cost of living crisis is pushing parents to the edge of their finances, worrying about paying for essentials like food, clothing and, for many, childcare. We'll take a look at Chile, which according to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), is one of the lowest ranking when it comes to public spending on early childhood education. Natalia Aránguiz lives in Chile and has two children- she speaks to Leanna Byrne about her rising costs. Ann Hedgepeth, chief of policy and advocacy at non-profit organisation Child Care Aware of America, says the national average price of childcare was around $10,600 per year. She says one of the main factors is getting the right staff. Seven thousand miles away in Kampala in Uganda, one childcare business owner is facing the same issues. Manuela Mulondo is chief executive and founder of Cradle, a childcare, lactation and education centre. She says people never think about childcare companies when they are talking about price rises, but says it's very expensive to look after children.

Uganda hii leo imetangaza kutokomeza mlipuko wa ugonjwa wa Ebola uliosababishwa na virusi aina ya Sudan, ikiwa ni chini ya miezi minne tangu kuthibitishwa kwa mgonjwa wa kwanza kwenye wilaya ya Mubende nchini humo 20 mwezi Septemba mwaka jana.Taarifa iliyotolewa na shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la afya ulimwenguni WHO katika miji ya Brazaville, Congo na Kampala, Uganda imemnukuu Waziri wa afya wa Uganda Dkt. Jane Ruth Aceng Acero akisema wameweza kutokomeza ugonjwa huo haraka kutokana na kutekeleza kwa kasi mikakati muhimu ya udhibiti, usimamizi, ufuatiliaji wa wagonjwa na waambata wao sambamba na hatua za kinga na udhibiti wa maambukizi. Dkt. Acero amesema “pamoja na kupanua wito wa juhudi zetu na kuimarisha hatua zetu kwenye wilaya tisa zilizokuwa zimeathiriwa na Ebola, siri kuu ya mafanikio ni uelewa wa jamii zetu kuhusu umuhimu wa kile kilichopaswa kufanyika ili kutokomeza Ebola.” Hii ilikuwa ni mara ya kwanza kwa Uganda kuwa na mlipuko wa Ebola ya virusi vya Sudan katika muongo mzima, ingawa ni mlipuko wa tano kwa ujumla wa ugonjwa wa Ebola. Taarifa hiyo imesema kulikuwa na wagonjwa 164 ambapo 142 walithibitishwa na 22 ni washukiwa.  Kati yao hao, wagonjwa waliothibitishwa kufa kwa Ebola ni 55 ilhali 87 walipona. Zaidi ya watu 4000 ambao walikuwa waambata wa wagonjwa hao walifuatiliwa na afya yao kufuatiliwa kwa karibu kwa siku 21. Mgonjwa wa mwisho aliruhusiwa kutoka hospitali tarehe 30 mwezi Novemba mwaka jana ambapo siku 42 za kuhesabu ili kuona hakuna tena mgonjwa zilianza na hadi leo hakuna mgonjwa mpya wa Ebola. Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa WHO Dkt. Tedros Ghebreyesu amepongeza Uganda kwa hatua za kina ambazo zimefanikisha Ushindi wa leo wa kutokomeza Ebola. Amesema hatua ya leo inadhihirisha kuwa Ebola inaweza kutokomezwa pindi mfumo mzima unapofanya kazi pamoja,kuanzia kuwa na mfumo wa kutoa tahadhari, hadi kusaka na kuhudumia walioambukizwa pamoja na waambata wao bila kusahau kupata ushirikiano kutoka kwa jamii zilizoathirika. Dkt.

It's Monday, January 2nd, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Ugandan Muslims sprayed pastor with acid in the face A pastor has lost nearly all his vision after Muslim extremists lured him into an ambush in Uganda's capital city and sprayed him with acid, reports Morning Star News. Pastor Frank Mutabaazi of Mbarara can see only dimly out of one eye and has trouble eating and talking due to the burns from the acid attack on December 22 in Kampala. His shoulder was also seriously burned, and he cannot sleep without painkillers. After the pastor preached at an evening service of a church in the Kasubi area of Kampala, a Muslim extremist, pretending to be a congregation member greeted him, praised him for his “wonderful sermon,” asked for a ride, and later three Muslims ambushed him, spraying acid in his face.   They called the pastor a deceiver who was not worthy to live. John 3:20 says, “Everyone who does evil hates the light.” Pope Benedict died at 95 Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who will forever be remembered as the first pontiff in 600 years to resign from the job, died Saturday, reports the Associated Press. He was 95. Benedict stunned the world on February 11, 2013, when he announced, in his typical, soft-spoken Latin, that he no longer had the strength to run the 1.2 billion-strong Catholic Church that he had steered for eight years through scandal and indifference. And now Pope Francis will celebrate Benedict's funeral Mass on Thursday, the first time in the modern age that a current pope will eulogize a retired one. The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger never wanted to be pope, planning at age 78 to spend his final years writing in the “peace and quiet” of his native Bavaria.  Being elected pope, he once said, felt like a “guillotine” had come down on him. Barbara Walters dead at 93 Barbara Walters, the trailblazing television news broadcaster and longtime ABC News anchor and correspondent, died Friday, reports ABC News. She was 93. Walters joined ABC News in 1976, becoming the first female anchor on an evening news program. Three years later, she became a co-host of "20/20," and in 1997, she launched "The View," a leftist talk program co-hosted by women. She was married four times to three different men. USA Today names Richard Levine — a man — among its 'Women of the Year' The editors at USA Today have officially drunk the “woke” Kool-Aid. The paper named Richard Levine — a man pretending to be a woman named “Rachel” -- among its “Women of the Year.” USA Today described Richard Levine as “the highest-ranking openly transgender official when the Senate confirmed her as assistant secretary of health in October 2021.” To be clear, Richard Levine has taken estrogen for years, has chosen mutilating surgeries, dresses like a woman, and now calls himself “Rachel” Levine.   The final vote was 52-48. Two Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, to their shame, joined all Democrats in supporting Levine. Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female, He created them.” 2,500 pack Indiana library for Kirk Cameron story hour Last Thursday, 2,500 people packed the Indianapolis Public Library to hear Christian actor Kirk Cameron read his new children's book As You Grow after a debacle surrounding the actor's allegations that his request to host the event was initially denied, reports The Christian Post. The story hour booked by Cameron and his publisher, Brave Books, garnered large masses of people, forming an overflow crowd. A video posted on Twitter shows overflow attendees packed in the aisles of the library as there was no remaining space in the booked room.  In a public letter, Cameron questioned if he was prevented from reading his Christian children's book because his race and the book's Christian content didn't fit the library staff's view of diversity.  The book aims to use "brilliant art [to teach] the Biblical truths of the Fruit of the Spirit.” Galatians 5:22-23 says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Cameron and Brave Books claim that over 50 public libraries have denied them the opportunity to host story-hour events. For many of those libraries, Drag Queen Story Hour events are typically included in their programs for children. Brother Andrew's life remembered And finally, as The Worldview looks back on the notable Christians who died in 2022, another disciple worth mentioning is Brother Andrew who died on September 27th at the age of 94. Brother Andrew earned the nickname "God's Smuggler" for his daring Bible deliveries behind the Iron Curtain at the height of the Cold War and was known by many for his adventurous faith and intensely devoted prayer life. Appearing on The 700 Club with Pat Robertson, he said this. BROTHER ANDREW: “My smuggler's prayer is when I say, ‘Lord Jesus, when You were on Earth, You've made so many blind eyes to see. Now, it's the same job for You to make seeing eyes blind. But You've got to do it now!' And if He doesn't, then I've had it. I cannot outsmart the crossing guards. “Just think when I pull my car in there and I get out the show my papers. I've had situations where they took four hours to search -- two fellows in the front of my vehicle, two in the rear, two underneath, and two standing there to watch the expression on my face to see if I was getting nervous.” ROBERTSON: “And all the time they couldn't find the Bibles?” BROTHER ANDREW: “I've never lost one Bible in 20 years.” (laughter and applause) He founded Open Doors, the oldest worldwide ministry to persecuted Christians, it reaches 60 countries, where it provides Bibles, emergency relief, and vocational training to Christians who are persecuted because of their faith. Open Doors is celebrating 67 years of ministry. Toward the end of his life, Brother Andrew said he often was asked a pointed question. BROTHER ANDREW: “'Andrew, what do you want written on your tombstone?' I have options. One of them, sounds very pious, ‘He's not here. He is risen.' Or, like Oswald Chambers' gravestone I visited that graveyard in Zeitoun in Egypt. ‘Oswald Chambers: A disciple of Jesus Christ.' That gives glory to God. A disciple of Jesus Christ.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, January 2nd, in the year of our Lord 2023. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

It's possible that the question we focus on in this week's programme occurred to you as you were sipping on an Irish Coffee in Bubbles O'Leary's in Kampala, Uganda: Where can the most Irish pubs be found - in Ireland? Or in all other countries combined? The popularity and sheer ubiquity of Irish pubs is a thing to behold. In 2015, the Irish Pubs Global Federation said there was approximately 6500 Irish pubs doing business outside the Emerald Isle - and our own research tells us there's at least one Irish bar in more than 160 of the world's 195 countries. But what is the secret, the recipe for global success? And can the More or Less team track down a definite number, thus answering the question some of you will have pondered whilst settling into a firelit Irish bar on a scorching hot day in rural Hawaii.

"The psychoanalytic frame I have built in myself helps me to find a way to not go too near and not be too distant to a person. It is other than what we learn when we learn to be psychoanalysts. Then we have the opportunity to feel in a room where we are not in danger - it's more the patient that feels in danger. He is coming and he has fears - but we, knowing our room, our couch, we don't have many fears. But if you work as I did in an open field, in different houses, in different hospitals, in different orphanages, you are first full of fear and at the same time very curious about what happens and what can happen. It's not the same as if you are in your own practice. One of the most important things I had was my psychoanalytic setting in myself - in myself, not in the room in which I work. I can find a way that doesn't bring too much fear to the patient and at the same time finds some way to get nearer to him, to his inner problems than if I was just a friend or a religious woman."   Episode Description: We begin by discussing the depth of human pain that Barbara encountered in her work in the poorest areas of Eastern Africa. She describes how essential her psychoanalytic sensibility was to enable her attunement to the closeness/distance space that was so important for mutual safety and understanding. She gives examples of the all-encompassing role of the Koran in those with whom she worked as well as the lack of a subjective self in many of the individuals she encountered. We learn of the effects of genital mutilation and the various reactions she had in seeing such suffering. We close with her sharing with us a bit of her personal story that has led her to this work.   Our Guest: Dr. phil. Barbara Saegesser is a training analyst with the Swiss Psychoanalytical Society and a member of the IPA. She is president of the commission treating ethical problems in the Swiss Society of Psychoanalysis. Since 2005 she has worked part-time in Eastern Islamic African cities: Alexandria, Khartoum, Addis Ababa, Hawassa, Djibouti, Kampala, and Zanzibar. Her work has been in orphanages, with street boys, in baby shelters, psychiatric hospitals, and maternity wards for genitally mutilated women.

This week Pastor Charles and Florence Mugisha joins us as guest speakers from Rwanda. Charles and Florence Mugisha were born to Rwandan families living as refugees in Uganda. Charles' parents fled Rwanda after the first genocide in 1959. Charles began to attend church in a neighboring village and gave his life to Christ. Just a few weeks later, Charles joined with other young people and began preaching the gospel on the streets. Charles and Florence met while attending Reformed Theological College in Kampala, Uganda's capital city. While Florence was planting a campus church, Charles began ministry in a nearby suburb of Kampala in Gaba to work with a church planter. Although the spiritual opposition in that village was strong, Charles and his mentor, Pastor Peter Kasirivu, prayed and persevered in their ministry. Eventually, a church was established, and hundreds of people started coming to Christ. Today, a church of more than 2,000 people and various ministries serving the poor are in that community. Charles and Florence attended Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon, where they both acquired master's degrees. In 2001, while pursuing his degree, Charles wrote the ministry plan for Africa New Life. That summer, he and Florence returned to Rwanda to see what God wanted to do through them and the ministry. When they returned to the U.S. the next semester, Charles and Florence brought 30 pictures of children who needed sponsorship, and the ministry was born. Today, Africa New Life provides for 11,000 students who are working toward a high school education, vocational training, or a university degree. Florence knew that young girls without education were particularly at risk to become abused by their employers. In response, she founded a ministry within Africa New Life called New Life Family Center, which provides vocational training and spiritual rehabilitation for women. Many of these young women are genocide survivors, and the Family Center also provides counseling and reconciliation for women of various ethnic backgrounds learning to work together. Florence's ministry both through Africa New Life and beyond empowers women to overcome personal pain and a lack of education to pull themselves out of poverty and live to their fullest potential. Charles completed his doctorate through Gordon-Conwell Seminary in 2015 and continues to serve as the lead pastor of New Life Bible Church in Kigali and as the President of Africa New Life. Florence serves as the Director of Women's Ministries for Africa New Life and is a motivational speaker and a dynamic communicator of the good news of Jesus Christ. Together, Charles and Florence are raising their five children, Isaac, Jonathan, Sarah, Bella and Joseph.

How hard is it for women to break into male-dominated jobs? We look at two projects which are helping women to increase their earnings by training them in forms of work that have traditionally been done by men. In Uganda, we meet the woman training girls in careers from mechanical engineering and welding to carpentry and construction And in India, we visit the college that trains impoverished women from around the world in the nuts and bolts of solar technology. As well as the economic benefits, by challenging the status quo these projects are also aiming to empower women and change society.

  A Dream of a Child's Toy and Feet Full of Maggots One Christmas morning Nicola had a dream that would change her and her family's life. It involved a Buzz Lightyear toy, a child in the African slums and feet infested with maggots.  In this podcast episode, Tania talks to Nicola Neal about her journey into ministry, beginning in a church in the town of Bath, UK and finishing in the slums of Africa. You'll hear the dramatic way God turned Nicola's life around through a vivid God conversation, how that same God-conversation was confirmed multiple times and how it led Nicola and her family to pack up their life in the UK and move to an unknown region of the world in just eight weeks. There Nicola began to understand the dream she had experienced so many years earlier. She and her family saw the supernatural work and grace of God in the face of extreme poverty, violence, sickness and death. You'll be inspired as Nicola shares God's heart for the poor and how the kingdom transforms at the deepest level. We also talk in the episode about everyday God-conversations and how each of our interactions with the Holy Spirit lead us step by step into God's plan. Nicola shares how we hear God's voice most of the time through the small, quiet and the everyday. A lot of time it feels like tuning into a whisper and sense on the inside that God is with us. As with any relationship, with time and intentionality, we gain clarity. About Nicola Neal Nicola and her husband Simon served as church leaders up until 2009 when they followed God's calling and moved with their two children to Uganda. There they got to see life as it really is for those living in the slums of Kampala and became passionate about bringing the God-given potential to light in people's lives. Not only through partnering with them to see change in their homes and families but by helping them encounter their heavenly Father. Since then, Every Life has grown into the team of over 50 dedicated men and women it is today. Simon and Nicola have now relocated back to the UK with their family, where they work with the International Office, guiding and overseeing Every Life's mission bases around the world. Nicola regularly speaks at churches and conferences around the country. Learn more at everylife.org.uk.

At time of recording an ongoing Ebola outbreak in Uganda has sickened 64 people. 24 people have died. The outbreak was declared on September 20th in a rural community but has since spread to Kampala, the sprawling capital city. In recent years, health officials in Africa have become very adept at responding to ebola outbreaks, and have relied on a highly effective vaccine that was developed in the wake of the 2014 West Africa ebola outbreak. However, there is no vaccine for the particular strain of ebola circulating in Uganda today. In this episode, we speak with John Johnson, vaccine and epidemic response advisor with Doctors Without Boarders France to talk about the origins of this outbreak and how it has spread, how healthcare workers are responding, and why there's not vaccine for this particular strain of Ebola when other ebola vaccines have proven to be so effective.

The anti-gender and anti-rights movement is a loosely connected set of groups and money, sometimes working in tandem with governments, who are looking to claw back LGBTQI+ rights and abortion rights that have been realized around the world. Bierne Roose-Snyder, Senior Policy Fellow for the Council for Global Equality, sits down to talk with us about how these movements came to be and the danger they pose to human rights and democratic systems. The anti-gender and anti-rights movement simultaneously works on a global and domestic scale. Misinformation and information flooding has contributed greatly to the anti-gender and anti-rights movement, undermining expertise and civil society, and creating a world in which no factual information can be trusted. From a domestic perspective, this can be very closely intertwined with authoritarian and anti-democratic movements. In a move to diminish civil society, the anti-gender movement will often target organizations that promote or support LGBTQI+ rights, sexual and reproductive health and rights, or other human rights—whether through formal complaints or targeted harassment and abuse. For example, in Uganda, the anti-gender government targeted Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), a Kampala-based LGBTQI+ human rights nonprofit. Similarly, Boston Children's Hospital has faced an extreme increase of threats and harassment for providing gender-affirming healthcare. The sexual and reproductive health and rights movement and the LGBTQI+ movement are being out funded by the anti-gender, anti-rights movement at incredible rates. In addition, U.S. religious institutions are not required to report their funding activities. Between 2013 and 2017, LGBTQI movements worldwide received 1.2 billion dollars in funding, while the anti-gender movement received 3.7 billion in funding.  LinksCouncil for Global Equality on TwitterCouncil for Global Equality on FacebookPower Over Rights – Center for Feminist Foreign PolicyRights at Risk – Observatory on the Universality of RightsExporting Disinformation - Mozilla FoundationManufacturing Moral Panic – Global Philanthropy Project  Take ActionFollow the Council for Global Equality on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date on their important work. Early, loud, visible mobilization for solidarity is incredibly powerful against the anti-gender and anti-rights movements.

Meet Peter Mutabazi. As a child in Uganda, he grew up with shelter, food and clothing scarcity. But more than that, he grew up with safety scarcity. He feared for his life from a father who threatened him, frequently called him “garbage” and “useless.” To survive, he ran away from home to live on the streets of the capital city, Kampala.   “I was treated like a stray animal in most ways — as you say, we were street rats because that's the way people looked at us,” said Mutabazi, who would get by on as little as one hour of sleep a day. “As early as [age] 4, I had kind up given up on life. … I think every morning, I felt like, ‘I wish I didn't have to wake up. I wish I woke up and was gone.' That was my wish every day because of the misery I was going through.”   He was eventually taken in by foster parents and it changed his life. He learned to speak seven languages. When he reached adulthood, he found himself in position to give back to vulnerable children. He wrote a book titled, “Now I Am Known,” and started a mission of the same name,  giving at-risk, foster children the message Mutabazi desperately needed to hear when he was in their position.   But Mutabazi still had unresolved feelings toward the father he fled that required healing.   “My hatred toward my dad, it was so, so bad that I wanted to harm him,” Mutabazi said.   Mutabazi gave his life to the Lord and realized that he couldn't go down that path.   “I can't live my life this way,” he concluded. “I have to forgive my dad.”

When former journalist, Joseph Bayanga, witnessed the death of three generations of a family on a Kampala road - a mother, daughter and grandchild – he decided enough was enough. More people die on Uganda's roads – 14 every day – than anywhere else in East Africa. Kampala's Mulago National Referral Hospital even has a special ward just for the drivers of boda bodas who account for the highest number of deaths. Boda bodas are the motorbike taxis which weave precariously through the traffic at every junction with one, two or even three passengers on their backs. So Joe reinvented himself as a road safety campaigner ‘Joe Walker' and walked 340 km in just 10 days from Kampala to his home town of Bushenyi to raise awareness on the subject.
