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. Okongo’s Ministry has impacted over 87 countries since he 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.
