Okongo Samson, the founder and director of Unite 4 Africa, has a compassionate heart for those who suffer daily hardships born from his own personal adversities. When he was 16, while on a mission trip, Okongo was abducted by a terrorist army that ravaged northern Uganda for decades. One of thousands of children kidnapped by this army, he was brutalized for weeks.
A God-directed, miraculous turn of events resulted in his narrow escape. Within a few years he was proclaiming the Gospel in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, and other countries where sharing Christ was illegal. As a result, he was thrown into prison fifteen times in fifteen different countries.
But God had a purpose for each hardship and an expansive plan that He was unfolding. In 2003 Okongo was divinely inspired to found Unite 4 Africa, a ministry of community and life transformation. This God-inspired ministry has touched tens of thousands of lives with love and compassion across Africa and beyond, including the most unreached and war-torn nations of the world. Over 50 countries have been impacted since Okongo and Unite 4 Africa answered God’s call to boldly stand for Christ by meeting the spiritual, physical, medical, social and emotional needs of people in desperate need.
Unite 4 Africa, Inc. is incorporated in Arizona as a tax-exempt [501(c)(3)] entirely funded by charitable donations. The ministry is young but the countless transformed lives and communities that have resulted from Unite 4 Africa’s work are only a foretaste of what can yet be accomplished. We invite you to partner with us in God’s future for Unite 4 Africa.
