When someone needs emergency medical attention in the U.S., help is just a phone call away. But in remote regions in Uganda, there's no such thing as 911. When children in these villages become critically ill because of malnourishment or infections like malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis, their parents feel desperate. Paralyzed by their lack of medical resources, this is where Love One steps in to help.

At Love One, we want parents to know that treatment is available-no matter how sick their child and how hopeless the situation may seem.

The Love One Center is a facility that houses children who are in desperate need of medical attention and care.

We hope that every person who comes through Love One's programs would experience the love of Jesus Christ.

Critical Care - Our community liaisons search Gulu's outlying villages for critically ill children, or they are brought to The Love One Center so we can coordinate emergency access to life-saving healthcare.

Rehabilitative Care - When the children are stable, they're transferred to the Love One Center to fully recuperate, and their parents learn about basic healthcare, nutrition, and hygiene.

Community Care - Restored to health, children return home to grateful families and joyful communities. Love One offers ongoing support through nutritional education, family strengthening and spiritual programs.

Mission statement

Our goal is to support children so that they can live full, healthy lives in thriving families. However, that impact is only eternal if we also share the gospel so that they can grow spiritually and emotionally.

In 2009, Mike and Suzanne Mayernick flew to Uganda to bring their little girl, JosieLove, home from Uganda. When they arrived, the 15-pound shell of a 3 1/2-year-old who they came to adopt was raging with a 105 degree fever and at a routine medical exam, they found out that that she had malaria, tuberculosis, and was HIV positive.

After just a few months at home receiving the love, attention, and the medical care she needed, this once dying little girl blossomed into a healthy, thriving child. Watching JosieLove's transformation sparked a fire inside of Suzanne and she knew that she was called to help more children like her she started Love One.

Love One International got its name from JosieLove and the plus sign represents the mission to support the HIV positive population.
