An American missionary who runs a charitable organization in Uganda has been sued for allegedly killing more than 100 children.
Renee Bach, who runs an NGO named Serving His Children in eastern Uganda, is accused of posing as a doctor and treating children in her care.
Ms. Bach is said to have taken children with malnutrition from local hospitals to treat them at her organization.
The complainants claim that over 100 children allegedly passed away while receiving treatment at her NGO.
The missionary was taken to court by a Civil Society Organization dubbed Women's Probono Initiative alongside Gimbo Zubeda and Kakai Rose from Masese in Jinja District.
Zubeda and Kakai allege that Ms. Bach's actions led to the death of their children while in her care.
In their lawsuit, the complainants have asked the Jinja High Court to order the closure of Bach's organization.
The complainants say the missionary's action caused the death of more than 100 children, "violating their right to access adequate treatment, the right to health of the children, the right to life, the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of race and social economic standing and the right to dignity, freedom from torture, inhuman and degrading treatment".
While responding to a 2018 article accusing Ms. Bach of masquerading as a doctor, The Serving His Children US director Lauri Bach said: "At no time has our founder, Renee Bach, presented herself as a medical professional, experimented on or caused the death of any child. Having been trained by medical professionals to startIVs, Ms. Bach has in the past provided assistance in such procedures when requested and currently serves in an administrative capacity and participates in fundraising for the organization."
No White Saviors (NWS), a group raising awareness of this case on social media, posted photos of two minors with visible scars they say were caused by Ms. Bach's botched care.
@nowhitesaviors tweeted: "Some of #ReneeBach 's victims are still alive. This is Patricia, left permanently disfigured after a botched blood transfusion performed by Renee. She didn't cross-match the blood, because she's not a medical professional, the child had horrible reaction & now lives with these scars."
@nowhitesaviors "This is Maasai. He has been left with irreversible physical and mental disabilities because of #ReneeBach 's botched medical experimentation. Former staff and the family of Maasai report that Renee Bach was the one to treating their child at @servinghis"
nowhitesaviors: "Renee Bach is absolutely hiding in the U.S. She did not even show up for court in Jinja in March," said NWS.
NWS also called for help in finding a "Virginia licensed attorney to consult" so they can file charges against her in the US.
Ms. Bach's whereabouts remain unknown with reports showing she failed to show up for her court date in March 2019.
