Until recently, Marsali has been serving as a nurse at Dwelling Places, reaching out to street children in Kampala. She is currently on study leave, completing a Masters in Global Health at University College London from September 2016 – September 2017 and will then prayerfully consider her next posting.

80% of Uganda is engaged in agriculture. The healthy economy of the 1960s was crippled in 1972 by the expulsion of the Asian business community, and then virtually destroyed by tyranny and wars. It has steadily improved since 1992. Under previous government regimes there were restrictions on persecuted Christians, but there is now freedom of religion.

Marsali was raised on the Isle of Lewis and then in Skye. She trained as a general nurse in Glasgow before working with children in a mission hospital in South India. She then studied Paediatrics in London and specialised in Oncology and HIV at Great Ormond Street Hospital before moving to the Paediatric Emergency Department in Glasgow Yorkhill Hospital. She then felt God calling her to full time mission, and after joining AIM in 2000 was sent to serve at Dwelling Places in Uganda in 2001.

Dwelling Places works to rescue street children, rehabilitate them in the organisation’s home, and then resettle them back into their families and communities. Marsali says: ‘The health work is a vital aspect of outreach to the children living on the streets. We develop relationships and trust, assist in emergencies, comfort and encourage where possible, teaching about health and life skills. Our social workers work with the children who come off the streets, are part of our rehabilitation programme, family tracing, home visits, and resettlement. For those who have no existing relatives, we pioneer in adoption and foster care, and for some of our older adolescents, they continue into independent living.’

Marsali has recently completed a Masters in Global Health at University College London, she is now prayerfully considering her next assignment.
