A Missionary from the United States has been accused of killing several children that were receiving care at the organisation she founded, Serving His Children (SHC).
The mothers of two children came forward when their children died after receiving care at SHC.
Renee Bach and SHC did not take responsibility for the death of the two children but have agreed to pay Zubeda Gimbo and Annet Kakai (The mothers of the children) 35 000 000 Ugandan Shillings each (£7 335).
The two children died at a nutrition care center in Jinja, eastern Uganda.
Renee Bach was accused of taking part in medical procedures with children, including blood transfusions.
Not having medical qualifications as a doctor or nurse did not stop her from doing so.
At least 105 children died at the center over several years.
Renee Bach and her lawyer, David Gibbs, denied that Renee Bach stated that she was a doctor but she admitted that she helped in ‘crises situations’ using ‘skills’ she had learned from Ugandan doctors and nurses.
The mothers of the deceased children both agreed not to pursue legal action and to release all claims that exist.
The mothers stated that they both felt a sense of relief and even though the pay-out cannot bring their children back they are glad that the world knows what happened and that families who have gone through the same thing and were afraid to speak up can now speak up.
Renee Bach announced that SHC was being closed down.
However, four more families are considering taking legal action against Renee Bach concerning the treatment of their children at the center.
An advocacy organisation in Kampala, called No White Saviors, stated that they have raised £12 400 to pay legal fees for the four families.
